Abstract

Quite often a pager user finds him or her self in a situation where the pager alerting method is not appropriate for the current environment, such as when the user is in a meeting or giving a presenta- tion. In this case, the user had to remove the pager from the holster, access the user interface to alter the alerting method and re-insert the pager into the hol- ster. This is a fairly easy procedure, yet it can be improved significantly, as will be described below.
