The present invention relates generally to the ?eld of com

employed in PCS.
Another paradigm for considering optimal access and
management of voice messages is in the context of paging
systems. Paging receivers are typically more ef?cient than
cellular or PCS devices in energy consumption and use of
spectrum among other reasons because they are in an active
mode or transmit mode for shorter periods of time. User
