  • a terminal unit housing;

    a means for coupling the terminal unit housing to a means for receiving a mobile communications signal;

    a normally inactive non-numeric annunciator means operably associated with the terminal unit housing for non-numerically annunciating a receipt of the mobile communications signal, anda means for coupling the non-numeric annunciator means to a means for receiving a mobile communications signal;

    wherein the mobile communications terminal unit is constructed for use as a personal vibrator of the type used on a human body wherein the terminal unit housing comprises an exterior surface with a user engaging portion wherein the non-numeric annunciator means comprises a means operably associated with the terminal unit housing for producing a vibratory annunciation for vibrating at least the user engaging portion of the terminal unit housing in response to a receipt of the mobile communications signal by a means for receiving a communications signal whereby one sending the mobile communications signal can employ mobile communications to induce a vibration of the user engaging portion of the terminal unit housing thereby enabling one receiving the mobile communications signal to apply the user engaging portion of the terminal unit housing to a human body to provide the human body with a vibratory sensation; and

    wherein the user engaging portion of the terminal unit housing comprises an elongate cylindrical section and a rounded nose coupled to an end of the cylindrical section to present a user engaging portion shaped like a smooth-ended rod and wherein the means for producing a vibratory annunciation vibrates the elongate cylindrical section and the rounded nose in response to a receipt of the mobile communications signal by a means for receiving a mobile communications signal thereby enabling one receiving the mobile communications signal to apply the user engaging portion to a human body including around and into orifices of the human body.
