BACKGROUND

  The integrated Dispatch Enhanced Network (iDEN) system provides its users with the ability to send and receive alphanumeric pages or "short messages." The iDEN Short Message Service Center (SMSC) allows users to send custom text pages or predefined text pages such as "CALL HOME" and "CALL. OFFICE" to iDEN Subscriber Units (SUs).

  The SMSC allows the message sender to attach a phone number to a custom text page. When an iDEN SU receives a custom text page, the recipient can hit the SEND key, and the SU will initiate an interconnect phone call to the phone number in the custom text page.
