Abstract

Currently, a user is allowed to select one of vari- ous alert cadences from a user-selectable alert menu. Once selected, all incoming pages will alert with the selected alert cadence. The user has no way to know who the caller is or where the call is from unless he/she reads the message. One good way of resolving this problem is to allow the user to select different alert cadences for each telephone entry stored in the telephone directory. Hence, from the page alert produced, the user can tell where the call is from.
