Do you know the importance of a skypager?

from A Tribe Called Quest – Skypager Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Many people don’t get the importance of a skypager…

Beepers were getting more and more affordable…and anyone could beep someone a number.

A skypager allowed a prehistoric version of the text message. If you had a skypager, I could call into a central number and read my message to an operator who would read the message back to you and say “message sent, thank you for calling skypager”
