Presently programming a pager requires access to contacts located on the printed circuit board of the pager. There are access holes in the pager housing which allow spring loaded pins to protrude through the housing and make a connection with these contacts. Communica- tion with the pager is established through this interface. The drawback of this design is that foreign matter or moisture is allowed to enter into the pager through these access holes.
