Abstract

There should be a way to automatically page a substitute person for a desired person without having to explicitly page the substitute. A time saving advantage would be provided to someone attempting to page a person if that person was not available. The substitute person could be contacted without having to determine who the substitute is, having to lwk up the substitute's pager number, and having to dial the substitute's pager number.

A time saving advantage would be provided to someone attempting to page a person if that person was not available. The substitute person could be contacted without having to determine who the substitute is, having to lwk up the substitute's pager number, and having to dial the substitute's pager number.

   A method to accomplish this is to use the paging system to automatically dial the substitute's pager number. If the wntactee could enter a substitute wntactee's pager number into the paging system along with a timeout date and time, all the contactee's calls could be forwarded to the substitute contactee in the absense of the wntactee for the timeout period.

Here is a possible scenario of the system's operation.

1) The contactee dials the paging system, enters a call forward code, the contactee's pager number, the substitute contactee's pager number, and a timeout date and time.

2) Later, a contactor dials the contactee's phone number.

3) The paging system uses the substitute contactee's pager number to invoke a page and informs the wntactor with a feedback message of the substitute page event.

4) The substitute wntactee receives the page with the wntactor's phone number message.

5) The substitute contactee dials the wntactor at the...
