Pagerfinder code

Vibration setting override code

This probably exists somewhere in the tangle of consumer electronics... but my pager doesn't have it. When I lose my pager, as I often do, I'm always pained by the knowledge that my task would be easier if I had left it set to beep, not stun...uh...vibrate. An overide code that forced it to beep would be great.

       Or get a sensitive directional mike, and hunt the buzz with that.

       Or elastic band a marble to it so it makes an irritating loud buzz when it vibrates. (but why not put it on beep then?)

       Zip tie it to your left thigh.

       You would have thought it'd be easy for the firmware writers to generate a BEEP sound if the only text in a message sent to it was "YOU ARE LOST! BEEP FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE!"

       Good idea. The user would need to set the code to keep it confidential. Could have a different longer ring.
