I've always said when they add not only 3G but text messaging it'll blow up just like pagers did back in the day! Mark my word!
    Cos kids love texting their parents?
    Don't every kid nowadays have a phone anywho?
    Did pagers ever really become popular?

    I am pretty sure that is the point. It would be foolish to make the iPod Touch 3G exclusive.

    Early 90's. Pagers were pretty popular.
    I think "trialnterror" is just trying to say that this is a cheaper way to give parents peace of mind. Most kids I know communicate via text anyway. The minutes are just a waste of money for them (their parents). This product seems to be the iPhone without the minutes plan add-on which I am sure would be very popular with the young folks. Hell, I would almost consider this and a go phone myself. The things holding me back are 1. no home landline (we can get one but that's just another expense) 2. 2GB data limit extremely likely. I wouldn't be saving any money here, but I am sure a lot of others would!

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    And why would you say that. I got my first pager in 1990 when I was 16. You have to remember, cell phones were around but out of reach for the avg consumer but pagers were 10-20 bucks a month. They were the cheap wide spread pre-cell phone choice of contact/communications back then.


    By 1990, wide-area paging had been invented and over 22 million pagers were in use. By 1994, there were over 61 million pagers in use and pagers became popular for personal use.
