The way software routine would work, is that the user sends a page with a certain data pattern to the pager. When the pager receives the page, the received data pattern is compared against a data pat- tern programmed in the ROM or in the codeplug. When these two data patterns match, the pager will change it's previously set page alert mode (silent or audio), to the audible alert mode and will set the page alert length to it's maximum value if the pager is not in Lowell or Gonecell mode. This value is usually 21 seconds in most of the recent Motorola pagers.
