Lets admit it - pagers are dead, there is no reason to keep deprecated fields in contact info. It is better to add drop-down GTalk/Skype box for IP voice calling.

I checked with the Thunderbird leads on this one, we've decided not to fix this - pagers may be dead for some people, but they are still around. If we remove it we could cause dataloss, we could restructure it into other fields but that's a part of different, existing, bugs.

Is it possible to make this field appear dynamically so that Pager info field in contact data is shown only when Pager info is already available. There also could be an "advanced" tab to add arbitrary fields to person Card. 

Do you plan to add "Address Book" plugin type to handle contact info presentation and sync issues in next major version of Thunderbird? Do you have a list of bugs with requests like this for future reference?
