Then neither is using a cell phone to act as a pager.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: I am curious about something on this. I
have been in many hospitals and medical centers where they ask you to
turn off your cell phone while there. They say it has to do with radio
telemetry equipment on the premises. Yet, the doctors and all the
staff members have pagers, and they don't turn those off. You'd think
radio signals from either type of device would be a problem. PAT]
