Paging options for convenience, personalization

Internet Paging

When the message is non-critical, American Messaging offers the convenience of Internet Paging. Messages can be sent through the link at the top of our home page or through your personal email account.

Important: Because the Internet can experience outages and delays in communication beyond our control, you should always send critical messages through our system via telephone.

How to Send A Page from our website:

  • Click Send a Page at the top of our Home page
  • Enter the 10-digit pager number
  • Type the message
  • Click Send

It’s that easy.

How to send a page from your email account:

  • Open a New Message window in your email account.
  • Address the email using the 10-digit pager number followed by @pager.ucom.com.
  • Note that you’ll have to eliminate hyphens and spaces from the pager phone number.

Example: For pager number 207-555-1111, type the following in the email address field: 2075551111@pager.ucom.com

  • Then just type your message and click Send

Voicemail and Custom Greeting

In some applications, the ability to personalize your pager increases your effectiveness. Voicemail and Custom Greeting is a premium service package offered by Critical Alert designed to enhance usability.

Voicemail

Voicemail allows callers to leave 30 second messages for the pager user to retrieve from a phone. The pager alerts the user once the message is recorded.

To retrieve a Voicemail Message:

  • Call pager number
  • Interrupt the greeting by pressing 0
  • When prompted, enter the 4 digit pass code
  • Choose from the following options:
  • Press 3 to Listen
  • Press 5 to Repeat
  • Press 7 for time that message arrived
  • Press 2 to Delete

Custom Greeting

Custom Greeting allows callers to hear your 10-second greeting before keying in their callback number.

To Set Up or Change a Custom Greeting:

  • Call pager number
  • Interrupt the greeting by pressing 0
  • When prompted, enter the 4 digit pass code
  • Enter 30, start recording after the beep
  • Choose from the following options:
  • Press 1 to stop recording and save Custom Greeting
  • Press 40 to listen
  • Press 30 to record again

Page Forwarding
Page Forwarding is great for situations where you have a single On-Call number and you need to forward it to the person who is actually on call that evening.

  • Forward a master pager number to another pager.
  • When the master number is paged, it simply forwards the page to the pager number you designate.
  • You are in control by simply keying in the forwarding number through the phone.
  • Can be changed anytime of day or night and as often as needed.

Page Redirect
Page Redirect alerts an email capable device, such as a smart phone, in addition to your pager. This redundancy is great for when you are traveling outside the paging area and still need to receive your paging messages.

  • Forward your pager number to any email capable device.
  • Works for Cellular Phone or a Blackberry device.
  • Both the pager and your other device will receive the page.

Follow Me Roaming
Follow Me Roaming is also great for situations where you will be traveling outside the paging area and still need to receive your pages. But it differs from the Page Redirect service, since either the pager OR your email capable device will receive the page — but not both.

  • Forward your pager number to any email capable device.
  • Works for such devices as a cell phones and smart phones.
  • You are in control of turning on and off this feature.
