DATACAST® Classic is a group of general interest information services. The categories of service are fixed, like the sections of your newspaper. With DATACAST® Classic, you are always informed by concise and timely information updates, delivered at regular intervals.

DATACAST® Classic is included with your pager by your paging provider. DATACAST® Classic updates arrive silently on your wireless device in a separate folder. Your paging provider selects which DATACAST® Classic categories are available to you on your wireless device. They also specify their geographic areas for local information -- such as Local Lottery, Local Weather, Local News, and Local Sports.
