Abstract

Pager users may find audio alerts irritating at times such as when they are at meetings or asleep at night. For existing pagers, users can either switch off the pagers or set them to a vibrate. mode when audio alerts are not desired. However, a pager that has been turned off will not be able to receive incom- ing pages and, in the vibrate mode, noise from its vibrations can be disturbing at night. Deactivating all alerts will not be practical as the pager may need to receive important or urgent messages.
