    Sports Pagers...Worth it or not?

    Just wondering who here all has a sports pager. Trying to find out if it would be a decent purchase or not and I was looking for feedback from people who have them.

    I got a free one from Cris. Baseball scores are slow, slower than my t-mobile internet score. I haven't try football yet. But preseaon is not all that great, because it doesn't show details. Just the score and how many minutes left in a quater.

    Thanks for the reply. I was thinking of using it more for line movements, player news, and weather than scoring updates. Any info at how they are at that?

    now that the new ones are not hackable, theres no point to go out and buy one with all the other options out there right now.

    Do they provide weather updates? Or line movements?

    I was under the impression that they provide scores, stats, odds, weather, and other news. The ones I have found so far all provide those services. Anybody else have any opinions on sports pagers? Any advice on these would be helpful.

    i got one from sportsbook.com. Couldn't figure out how to use it. More importantly the battery life was only two weeks. No way was I going to buy a new battery every other week

    I got one of those big 4 line pagers off ebay about 3 years ago.
    It does what I got it for and it still works.
    If I remember it cost like $130 nothing monthly.
    It does scores and lines.
    it also does some weather, injury updates and very few in game plays.
    It also updates lines every so often.
    Scores update about every 30 sec.

    BTJ why do you have two phones?

    Are you involved in some sort of illegal activity?

    YOUR FOOTPRINT IS ALL OVER THE NET......Everything you have ever posted is on the net FOREVER....
    YOU ARE SUCH A DUMBASS.

    Funny how we never had a problem for over 7 years, and then you got a hair up your ass, and suddenly
    I'm a crook. You were always treated fairly, Your rants are slanderous and disrespectful....I'm sure I'm not the only one on this forum who knows you are an IDIOT.
