The use of personal radio communication devices is rapidly increasing. While the users benefit from the ever-increasing capability to "stay in touch," both users and non-users must bear the con- stant interruptions and annoyances of these devices. A simple solution would be to turn off the subscriber, but that would only transfer the problem to the calling party that is trying to contact the radio users in question. A solution is required that satis- fies the needs of all parties involved.
