Abstract

On contemporary pagers, a user can manually select audible alerts from a menu of pleasing alerts or a silent alert. However, once an alert is chosen, be it audible or silent, a pager operates with this alert until the user changes or selects another. The lack of flexible alerting with respect to pager messages and preference of a calling party is not desirable to users. A radio pag- ing scheme which allows an alert to be selected and transmitted over the air when a page is sent is a desir- able feature for pagers.
