➊ Press any button to stop the alert.

The flashing arrow at the bottom right corner of the

predetermined intervals to remind you of an unread
message.

The function menu gives you access to the many features of your pager through a series of symbols and
prompts. For example, when the function menu screen

OTHER FEATURES
Low Battery Alert: A low battery Ì symbol is displayed in place of the date at the onset of low battery
conditions. An audible low battery alert is also heard at
that time. Replace the battery as soon as possible after
the low battery alert is heard. It alerts only once when
the low battery symbol is displayed.
Duplicate Message: If the same message is
received more than once, DUPLICATE is displayed at
the beginning of your new message to indicate that
your message has already been received. Your new
message contains the latest time stamp.
Out of Range: With this option installed, whenever you
are too far away from your paging system's transmitter
to reliably receive messages, your pager displays an
OUT OF RANGE message and an out-of-range ö symbol.
