Abstract

Information and other related services received on the FLEX protocol for the most part have a peri- odic pre-determined transmission time that may not coincide to the most efficient battery save cycle desirable. An example of this would be a news ser- vice that gave headline updates every 15 minutes. The pager upon receiving the information would continue to turn on the decoder and receiver search- ing during the remaining 15 minute time interval for non-existent page data.
