Abstract

Roaming pagers can operate over different coun- tries or time zones. The uniqueness of time stamp- ing is in accordance with such countries and time zones. The time and date of a received page are based on the country or time zone in which the user resides. This can cause confusion to the user when moving across different countries or time zones because it will not be possible to distinguish where and when a page is received. In order to avoid such confusion, a single time reference is hereby pro- posed to distinguish time stamping for different countries or time zones. As a result, the time stamp- ing of received pages will change accordingly when the user resides in a new time zone.
