Paginglist.com Means No More Phone
A website that offers a new safer way of giving out your phone details is set to transform social networking.
In response to growing concerns about online safety and phone numbers falling into
the wrong hands paginglist.com have launched a service that eliminates unwelcome
callers from our lives. Rather than give out a phone number to online friends, you
give your 'paging Tag', a unique nickname you create to mask your phone number.
Then, if you add your friend's Tag to your own paginglist.com contact list, that person
will be able to place a call to your phone, either by clicking online or by texting your
Tag to paginglist.com's SMS number. Only the people on your personally approved
paging list can ever get a call through to you, everyone else is barred.
Paging gives you permanent control over who can - and can’t - call you. If you delete
a Tag from your list, they can never contact you again. So no more unwelcome
callers, no more text pests. And unlike Skype, you don't need to own a smartphone
or go online to use it: it works on all phones.
With the explosion of sites like Facebook and Twitter more and more people are
posting their phone numbers online or giving them out to strangers, and regretting it.
Imagine if Brad or Angelina's mobile phone numbers were leaked. Their phones
would never stop ringing. It would make their phones unusable. But if their paging
Tags were posted, say 'Bradley P' and 'Mrs Pitt', their phones would stay silent
because only their authorised friends could get through.
Best of all, it’s free to set up and it works on any fixed line or mobile phone, so
anyone can go to paginglist.com and create a Tag. Then the next time someone
asks for your number you can tell them, "My paging Tag is all you need to know".
Paginglist.com don't collect your data, your phone number is protected by state-ofthe-
art encryption, and paged calls are cheaper than all major networks' Pay as you
