The Soft ID Encode Feature allows for entry of an alphanumeric character string which associates a more user liiendly and extensible identification with the current subscriber unit user (as opposed to sim- ply the "hard" subscriber unit ID). Soft ID is embedded in voice and data transmissions initiated from a subscriber unit and can be subsequently decoded and displayed by receiving units (fixed end equipment, another subscriber unit, etc.) as a method to easily identity the person in possession of the trans- mitting unit.
