Abstract

There should be a paging system which could handle private phone call forwarding to a contactee's pager without having to explicitly be paged by the contactor. There would be a time saving advantage to a person, attempting to con- tact another person, without having to dial a pager number after dialing a phone number. This usually would occur if the person trying to be contacted is not present at the phone where they are expected to be. Another advantage would be that the contactor may not be aware that the contactee wears a pager.

There would be a time saving advantage to a person, attempting to con- tact another person, without having to dial a pager number after dialing a phone number. This usually would occur if the person trying to be contacted is not present at the phone where they are expected to be. Another advantage would be that the contactor may not be aware that the contactee wears a pager.

   A method to accomplish this is to use the telephone system to automatically dial the contactee's pager number. If, after a predetermined number of rings of the wntactee's phone, the contactee did not answer, the telephone system would call the paging system, pass the contactee's pager number and the contactor's phone number to the paging system to provide the numeric display message for the contactee's pager to display. The wntactee must be wearing a display pager for this to work, however.

Here is a possible scenario of the system's operaton. A display radio pager is required by the wntactee.

1) The contactor dials the wntactee's phone number.

2) If the contactee answers the phone, communication is made and the phone system operates as normal. If the contactee does not answer the phone after a predetermined number of rings, the phone system dials th...
