I would highly recommend staying away from Watchdog pagers. Myself and the chief demo'ed a Watchdog for a month. We liked that they took AAA batteries and that you could actually store pages on the unit until you deleted. So we purchased 6 pagers. After we received them we had nothing but problems. The main compalint was not receiveing pages and the salesman said they were drifting off. They would reset them and they would drift again. When i asked about a returning them we were out of luck since it was after 30 days. The pagers were under 6 months old and sit in a box and we replaced them with Minitor V's from another dealer. If anyone likes watchdog pagers let me know. I'm sure we could work a deal out on the one's we have.
I would highly recommend doing the 30 day demo with Swissphone. The pagers are known for their Swiss quality and use one Nimh AA battery which allows you to throw in an alkaline battery if you forget to charge the Nimh. You can sign up for the demo at www.swissphone.com
Mention this ad, and Ill give you a free 5 Year Warranty with Purchase of our Apollo VP200. Although Very similar looking to the Minitor V. We made some rapid improvements to our units. Offering right off the bat 8 Minutes of Stored voice (NO UPGRADE FEE) supports dual Frequency, and up to 12 Tone sets, our Pagers are designed to transition you off the Minitor V with improved reliability and at an average of $150.00 less expensive then any other competing pager on the market.
Or even better, trying out our VP101 Single channel units that have 2 minutes stored voice, smaller and rugged in size that handle up to 6 tone sets at even more of a discounted price.
We are more then happy to send out a demo 30 - 45 days - 60 for all we care. We want you to be aware of how high quality and Cost effective our units are.
Upon Demo, At your request we will also send over a programming cradle, so you can fully customize and be aware of all the features our units have to offer before purchasing.
We are a paging company with the most paging products then any other competitor on the market, trust a company that has more to offer then a handful of products. See why many Choose Apollo Wireless!

Has anyone tried the new Unication G1 pagers?
I am also looking for feedback on the G1. We have a mutual dept. that has tried one for time, then bought five of them. They have not had them very long though so was looking for more information myself.
I tried to send you a PM but could not get it to work. We are currently using Minitor V pagers, a mutual aid dept. with us just purchased five new Unication G1 units. We are thinking about getting away from the MinitorV as they stop working. I am curious as to why you said if you don't go with the Swissphone you would suggest staying with the Minitor V. You can email me at email@example.com.

Unication is the same company that manufactured the Minitor V for Motorola (and they're not manufacturing the 6). I would expect the same types of issues with service that you may have had with the Min5.
If you want to consider the WatchDog LT as a straight M5 alternative please message me. We provide demos.
