Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

I . Λ two-way paging system, comprising:
a paging terminal comprising,
terminal interface means for receiving a message from a caller;
terminal transmitter means for transmitting the message to at least one two-way paging unit;
terminal receiver means for receiving a transmission
from at least one two-way paging unit;
a terminal memory connected to the interface means,
connected to the transmitter means and connected to the
receiver means, the memory containing a plurality of prerecorded messages, parameters or destination addresses stored in the memory with each being selectively retrievable by a
unique message code contained in the transmission from the at least one two-way paging unit;
a plurality of remote units, each comprising:
remote receiver means for receiving the message from
the paging terminal;
a remote memory connected to the remote receiver and containing a plurality of pre-recorded messages, parameters or destination addresses stored in the memory with each being
selectively retrievable by a unique message code;
remote transmitter means for transmitting a signal to the paging terminal where at least part of the signal contains a
unique message code corresponding to one of the pre-recorded messages stored in the memory of the paging terminal;
display means connected to the remote memory for
displaying the message from the paging terminal and for
selecting one of the plurality of pre-recorded messages, parameters or destination addresses stored in the remote
memory; and
control means connected to the remote receiver means, the remote memory, the remote transmitter and the display
means, the control means operable in response to user
commands to select the unique message code corresponding to one of the pre-recorded messages stored in the remote memory, and for sending the selected unique message code to the remote transmitter means.

2. The two-way paging system of claim 1 where the signal transmitted by the at least one remote paging unit is an acknowledgement message in response to a message transmitted by the paging terminal.

3. The two-way paging system of claim 1 where the signal transmitted by the at least one remote paging unit is an unsolicited message initiated by the at least one remote paging unit.

4. The two-way paging system of claim 1 where the paging terminal further has means for sending a pre-recorded message corresponding to a unique message code incoφorated in a signal transmitted by a remote paging unit to at least one intended recipient.

5. The two-way paging system of claim 4 where the signal transmitted by at least one remote paging unit contains an address of the intended recipient of the message.

6. The two-way paging system of claim 5 where the address is a phone number.

7. The two-way paging system of claim 5 where the address is a fax number.

8. The two-way paging system of claim 5 where the address is a pager number.

9. The two-way paging system of claim 5 where the address is a computer modem number.

10. The two-way paging system of claim 4 where the paging terminal further has means for sending a pre-recorded message corresponding to a unique message code incorporated in a signal transmitted by a remote paging unit to at least one intended recipient as a synthesized voice.

1 1. The two-way paging system of claim 1 where the signal transmitted by at least one remote paging unit contains a combination of a unique message code and a specific message generated by a user of the remote paging unit.

12. A method of transmitting pre-recorded information from a remote mobile unit to a receiving terminal, the method comprising the steps of:
selecting a subset of messages, parameters or destination
addresses from a master set to form a subset of messages, parameters or destination addresses;
assigning a unique code to each member of the subset of messages, parameters or destination addresses;
downloading the subset of messages, parameters or destination addresses and each corresponding unique code to the remote mobile unit;
selecting at least one of the messages, parameters or destination addresses from the subset to send from the remote mobile unit to the paging terminal;
transmitting the unique code corresponding to the at least one messages, parameters or destination addresses to the paging terminal; and sending the at least one messages, parameters or destination addresses corresponding to the transmitted code to a recipient.

13. A paging system comprising a paging terminal and a plurality of remote paging units,
the paging terminal having means for receiving a message from a caller and transmitting the message to at least one remote paging unit;
the paging terminal having means for receiving a transmission from at least one remote paging unit;
the paging terminal further having a memory with a plurality of prerecorded messages stored in the memory with each message being selectively retrievable by a unique message code;
the plurality of remote paging units having a receiver for receiving a message transmitted by the paging terminal; and
the plurality of remote paging units having a transmitter for
transmitting a signal to the paging terminal where at least part of the signal contains a unique message code corresponding to one of the pre-recorded messages stored in the memory of the paging terminal.

14. The paging system of claim 13 where the signal transmitted by at least one remote paging unit is an acknowledgement message in response to a message transmitted by the paging terminal.

15. The paging system of claim 13 where the signal transmitted by at least one remote paging unit is an unsolicited message initiated by the at least one remote paging unit.

16. The paging system of claim 13 where the paging terminal further has means for sending a pre-recorded message corresponding to a unique message code incoφorated in a signal transmitted by a remote paging unit to at least one intended recipient.

17. The paging system of claim 16 where the signal transmitted by at least one remote paging unit contains an address of the intended recipient of the message.

18. The paging system of claim 17 where the address is a phone number.

19. The paging system of claim 17 where the address is a fax number.

20. The paging system of claim 17 where the address is a pager number.

21. The paging system of claim 17 where the address is a computer modem number.

22. The paging system of claim 16 where the paging terminal further has means for sending a pre-recorded message corresponding to a unique message code incoφorated in a signal transmitted by a remote paging unit to at least one intended recipient as a synthesized voice.

23. The paging system of claim 13 where the signal transmitted by at least one remote paging unit contains a combination of a unique message code and a specific message generated by a user of the remote paging unit.

24. A method of transmitting pre-recorded messages from a remote mobile unit to a paging terminal, the method comprising the steps of:
selecting a subset of messages from a set of messages;
downloading the subset of messages and corresponding codes to the remote mobile unit;
selecting at least one message from the subset to send from the remote mobile unit to the paging terminal;
transmitting the code corresponding to the at least one message to the paging terminal; and sending the at least one message corresponding to the transmitted code to a recipient.
