The last pager network I had anything to do with withdrew its service
almost fifteen years ago and gave all the remaining a subscribers a free
orange PAYG phone. I was reminded of this when said phone turned up in a
pile of old-tech stuff I reluctantly sent off to the tip a fortnight
Getting back on topic, one of the major "issues" when RIPA was
originally being discussed is whether the police could easily get to see
"old pager messages" using things like search warrants, because they
arguably weren't communications any more, protected by interception law,
but just data sat on a computer somewhere. Enquiring minds might want to
think about "old SMS messages".
