HELP SUPPORT THE NEWSLETTER

How would you like to help support The Wireless Messaging News? Your support is needed. New advertising and donations have fallen off considerably.
There is not a lot of news about Paging these days but when anything significant comes out, you will probably see it here. I also cover text messaging to other devices and various articles about related technology.

A donation through PayPal is easier than writing and mailing a check and it comes through right away.
