1. A selective paging transceiver, comprising:

  • a receiver for receiving a selective call signal having an information identifier signal identifying information that is available to be transmitted to the paging transceiver, wherein the selective call signal does not include the information identified by the information identifier signal;

    a processor for generating an alert signal after the receiver receives the information identifier signal;

    a user interface for receiving the alert signal and for generating an alert to inform a user that the information identifier has been received, the user interface also for receiving commands from the user, whereinthe processor receives a retrieve command from the user interface and generates a retrieve signal including at least part of the information identifier signal; and

    a transmitter for sending the retrieve signal to a system having access to the information so that the system may transmit the information identified by the information identifier signal to the paging transceiver, thereby enabling the paging transceiver to retrieve the information, whereinthe receiver receives the information transmitted from the system,the user interface receives an erase command from the user,the processor, in response to the receipt of the erase command, generates an erase signal, andthe transmitter transmits the erase signal to the system, whereupon receiving the erase signal the system erases the information.
