DUPLICATE MESSAGE COUNTER WITH TIME LOGGING AND URGENT ALARM

by Angelina Wong

  The following invention draws the user's atten- tion to any messages that could be urgent and require an immediate response.

  In the example below, the person was paged with the same message three times between 12:00 and 12:06. Pressing the READ button allows the user to see how many times the message was repeated and at what time each was received.
