Call count barring is not a new feature to the paging industry. It has existed across several differ- ent paging infrastructure platforms with slight varia- tions in implementation for many years. This fea- ture allows a paging carrier or system operator to limit the number of messages a subscriber may receive during a given time period (i.e. daily, week- ly or monthly page limits). Once the allotted limit has been reached, all attempts to page the subscriber are blocked until the call count period expires and the subscriber's call count limit is reset by the sys- tem operator.
