This invention prescribes a scheme for numerical information (e.g. telephone numbers) to be transmitted by an electronic device (e.g. pager) to another receiving electronic device (e.g. a cellular phone, home phone, facsimile, personal computer or electronic organizer) for further processing. The data are suitably formatted with measures taken to ensure optimal data integrity and usefulness. The communication link is wireless for convenience and may be via infrared, etc. The scheme is very versatile as many different types of devices can be linked with such a simple means of data transfer.
