Thanks for the information.  It was a different phone number from
the one printed on the pager, which turned out to be the PIN.

I put an entry like this in etc/pagermap...

	word	NNNNNNN/nnnnnnn

where NNNNNNN is the service provider phone number, and nnnnnnn
is the PIN number.  He can now do this...

	$ sendpage -q -p word 9999999

to send the numeric message 9999999 to his pager.
