Most of the numeric pagers in the market use seven, eight, or nine segment LCDs to display received messages. Most numeric pagers adopt a Sequential Read approach to read the received messages in its memory. That is, if there are twenty messages in the pager and each message consists of three screens, then to read the 20th message, the user needs to step through 19 X 3 = 57 screens in order to reach the 20th message. This method of reading messages sequentially is ineffective and time consuming.
