Some high-tier answering machines will notify a user that a message is waiting on the answering machine by the use of a digital or alphanumeric pager. This is currently a feature of some of the Motorola "Diane" digital answering machine products, The message forwarded in this instance is user definable at, initial device setup, but is then static. A typical message would be "555-1234." This would tell you that a message is waiting at your home telephone. This message would be sent each time a message is recorded by an incoming caller.
