Abstract

When an individual makes a landline to mobile/ portable radio-telephone telephone call, and the user of the target radio is not available to answer, it is desirable to be able to instantly call another radio, without having to give up the phone line. Telephone interconnect resources in radio systems being lim- ited, keeping the phone line in ones control in the event of an unanswered call, and thus giving the caller the option of calling another radio, is advanta- geous. The invention which accomplishes this is the option of pressing a button in the event of an unanswered call or busy, which would enable the caller to then enter in the radio ID of another radio in the system and thus call that individual without having to give up the radio system's telephone inter- connect resources. In a system with high traffic, giv- ing up telephone interconnect resources without hav- ing satisfactorily made use of them could mean the caller would have to wait an unacceptable length of time before the resources became available again.

The invention which accomplishes this is the option of pressing a button in the event of an unanswered call or busy, which would enable the caller to then enter in the radio ID of another radio in the system and thus call that individual without having to give up the radio system's telephone inter-

connect resources. In a system with high traffic, giv- ing up telephone interconnect resources without hav- ing satisfactorily made use of them could mean the caller would have to wait an unacceptable length of time before the resources became available again.

  For example, if an individual needed to contact a member of a mobile/portable radio user work group by telephone, in a high traffic system, if the called individual was not available to answer, the caller could simply press a button and then enter in an alternate radio ID to call another member of the same group, thus getting his information...
