Abstract

In the near future digital paging services will pro- vide much mc~re than a numeric phone number or a short alphanumeric message. The user will have access to headline news, sports, financial news, fax, and other informational services. They will be able to store the data within the pager and print it out at their conven- ience. These services will be highly data intensive and will most likely be more expensive than the standard numeric services provided today. If an advertising agency were to gain access to a paging service they could send a large amount of advertising with minimum cost to themselves. The paging service user may fmd it conven- ient or even necessary to limit access to their paging service from outside sources. Even the user of a stand- ard numeric service could find it useful to lock out nui- sance callers.
