‘What?’ you mutter. ‘A Vodazap, whassat, 151{(§)P%

then?’ Boy, am l glad you asked! it’s a pager that’s quite unlike any other pager. The Vodazap allows owners to leave their own personalised message for callers and, for their part, callers can leave a ten second message which gets typed onto the screen of the Vodazap. The Vodazap can also be switched to vibrate mode, so if you’re clubbing it at noise levels greater than that of a jet taking off, you’ll be able to feel your pals trying to get hold of you. Other uses include tying your Vodazap to your toothbrush, getting a friend to page you, switching to vibrate mode and hey presto! lt doubles as an electric toothbrush. As if a vibrating pager wasn’t yummy enough, the Vodazap also has a countdown timer, an alarm facility and it receives a variety of free information services including the lottery result. Normally, Vodazaps start in price at £69.95, after which initial payment there is no contract, line charge, connection charge or any other type of charge. We’ve got a super duper £99.95 Vodazap to give away for nothing to the person who can answer this:
