The Telephone Office is pleased to offer paging service to the faculty and staff of the University of Manitoba from two providers: MTS and Rogers Wireless

A Numeric Pager provides the number of the person trying to reach you while Alpha-Numeric models enable you to receive text messages. Both types feature musical or silent vibration alerts, a back-lit display for easy reading and the time of day display.

  • Low Cost: Numeric Pager, once activated, can cost less than $9 a month
  • Long life - most pagers require one AAA battery that can last up to 5 months, without replacement, so there's no need for constant recharging
  • Strong signal - coverage is available across Manitoba and throughout Canada for reliable, expandable coverage wherever you need it
  • Small size - a pager fits in your pocket.

Please call 474-7882 for further information. We look forward to assisting you with your wireless service needs.

Activation of Paging Service:

To complete one of the enclosed Cellular / Pager order forms. Indicate the department information, the budget number and authorizing signature and fax to (474-7536) or deliver the completed form to the Help & Solutions Centre room 123 Fletcher Argue

  • MTS Cellular / Pager order form

Upon receipt, you will be contacted by the U of M pager specialist who can make arrangements to order the pager. There are new and refurbished pagers available. Pager hardware pricing is available through the U of M pager specialist. The vendor will deliver the equipment to your department or the Telephone Office complete with order form indicating rate plan information and the new pager number. Your new pager will normally be available within 2 days. The price of the pager needs to be put on your department Visa. If your department does not have a Visa then the department will need to do a purchase requisition and forward it to the Telephone Office. The monthly charges will be put on our Corporate account and an ID charge will be put through monthly by the Telephone Office directly to the department budget number.

Deactivation of Paging Service:

If you no longer require the service of your pager you need to contact the U of M pager specialist to have the pager deactivated. The Telephone Office will take the necessary steps to deactivate the pager for you.
