I was shoked to see that a contact of mine, who has a Work Pager listed only on his record, did not appear on my list when I wanted to call his pager. So, although, he is in the Contact list, his name does not appear when I try to acces him from the Phone application.
And if I access his record through Contacts (only a work pager is listed), I can't call him by pressing the pager number. I had to add the same phone number as a mobile number to contact him. This of course was during an emergency, while i was driving, so I had to come off the road and figure this out. This was never a problem with my Torch...
This needs an immediate fix! I purchased the phone as a user, never signed up as a beta tester....

This has been noted by a few people, must have been either a mistake or Blackberry's way of cutting down on the drug trade. Do drug dealers even use pagers anymore? Just kidding!
I would call the issue into your Carrier's Blackberry support team so that it gets officially recognized and fixed in a future release.
As a workaround for now I can suggest moving the pager numbers to any other type of telephone field.
