Abstract

In current pager design, audible and vibratory alerts are commonly applied to alert users of pagers when a page is received. For audible alerts, a user may not hear such alerts if the person is in a noisy environment. On the other hand, for vibratory alerts, a user may not be aware that a page has been received if the pager is not directly in contact with the user. This can happen when, for example, a pager is kept in a bag or left somewhere else.
