Abstract

The current pager market is flooded with pagers with different designs and operating procedures. There are pagers that operate with 1, 2, 3 or more buttons. All pagers, however, have delegated but- tons to perform certain functions. In general, there are READ buttons for reading messages, MODE but- tons for selecting operation modes, and ARROW buttons for advancing or increment operation. Such buttons when designed and implemented in the pager by the manufacturer, cannot be changed. Ifthe READ button is designed on the right corner, it stays at the right corner.
