In a pager with a time alarm function, the time alarm alert can be easily confused with the paging alert. To eliminate this confusion, the alarm indicator icon on the LCD display, can be flashed during the alarm signal alert. In this way, the user will immediately know the nature of the alert, Upon activation of the alarm, which the user has set to remind him/her of an important event, the alarm indicator icon will begin to flash. The icon will flash on and off repetitively in synchronicity with the alarm cadence or at another rate.
