I made a (very unreliable) script which would send a number to a numeric
pager, without using IXO/TAP.  The problem is that it doesn't really do
anything but 
	send ATDTphonenumber
	wait a while
	send pagernumber
	wait a while
	send numericcode
	hang up
Unfortunately, this is unreliable with all the pager systems I had access
to.  They wanted you to listen to the whole message, which was of varying
length. :-(

You'll have to translate the various parts of the status to a number.  I
had a script which did that..., yup, still do.  If someone wants it, ask.
