1. A method comprising:

  • receiving a system information container for at least one target cell, as part of a connection release message during redirection;

    causing storage of the system information container;

    generating a temporary stored information indicator at a mobile terminal indicating that the mobile terminal stores the system information container, comprising temporary information, and that a conditional requirement with respect to connection to a target cell is met, wherein the temporary information comprises a temporary neighbor cell list that is a subset of a complete neighbor cell list provided by a network element such that the temporary neighbor cell list is reduced relative to the complete neighbor cell list provided by the network element;

    receiving, following generation of the temporary stored information indicator, non-temporary information that serves to replace the temporary information, wherein the non-temporary information comprises the complete neighbor cell list; and

    causing a replacement of the temporary information with the non-temporary information based on the temporary stored information indicator once the connection requirement to the target cell is met.
