Abstract

In the existing pagers with multiple addresses (which typically consist ofindividual address, group address and maildrop address), the user has no way to selectively "turn olI" or deactivate any particular address without turning off the pager which effectively will shut down ALL the pager addresses. It is anticipated that occasionally users might wish to turn off only one or more of its pager's addresses for certain reasons like to maximize battery life, avoid unnecessary interrupt by message from undesired source (pager address) at particular times etc.
