1. A method for managing mobile device operation, the method comprising:

  • storing, in memory by a mobile device, control information for receiving and decoding real-time services and for receiving and decoding non real-time services provided by a network server, wherein the memory portion is configured to store control sequence numbers for service flows received by the mobile device from the network server;

    monitoring by the mobile device a control channel broadcasted by the network server, the control channel contains control information updates for a plurality of service flows provided by the network server, wherein the control information includes control sequence numbers for real-time service updates numbered in accordance with a first control sequence numbering system and control sequence numbers for non real-time service updates numbered in accordance with a second control sequence numbering system separate from the first control sequence numbering system;

    determining which service flow updates are currently required by the mobile device and for said service flows comparing control sequence numbers stored in the memory of the mobile device with the control sequence numbers identified in the control channel to determine if the required service flow updates are provided in the control channel; and

    extracting from the control channel only control information updates for the service flows currently required by the mobile device and updating control sequence numbers for said service flows in the memory.
