This communication is in response to applicant's 6/24/97 amendment in the application of Deluca et al. for a "Multiple Pager Status Synchronization System and Method" filed 8/31/95. The proposed amendments to the specification and abstract have been entered. No claims have been canceled or added. Claims 4-14 are allowed. Information Disclosure Statement 2. The corrected information disclosure statement filed 6/24/97 fails to comply with the provisions of MPEP § 609 because copies of cited references AT and AU have not been supplied as required by 37 CFR § 1.98(a)(1); and such references are not associated with a prior application and relied on for an earlier filing date under 35 USC §120, as required by 37 CFR § 1.98(d). It has been placed in the application file, but the information referred to therein regarding references AT and AU has not been considered as to the merits. Applicant is advised that the date of any re-submission of any item of information contained in this information disclosure statement or the submission of any missing element(s) will be the date of submission for purposes of determining compliance with the requirements based on the time of filing the statement, including all certification requirements. See MPEP § 60911 C(1). 119FH080 Page 3 Serial Number: 08/522,026 Art Unit: 2211 Examiners Amendment 3. An examiner's amendment to the record appears below.

To ensure consideration of such an amendment, it MUST be submitted no later than the 7ment of the issue fee . • In line 1 of claim 13,/rt after the phrase "plurality of': --wireless-• In line 2 of claim 13, after the phrase "communicating with" delete "an" and insert: --a wire7 ~ing-• Delete claims 1-3 4. rr; their entirety. Authorization for this examiner's amendment was given in a telephone interview with Mr. Michael Zazzara (Reg. No. 35,743) on 9/15/97 and 9/18/97. 5. The word --of-- has been informally entered by the examiner between the words "status" and "a" in line 1 of former claim 8 for grammatical correctness. Reasons For Allowance 6. The following is an examiner's Statement of Reasons for Allowance: The prior art of record neither singularly nor in combination discloses or teaches a system and method for synchronizing status among a plurality of wireless communication devices (e.g. pagers) wherein status changes (e.g., changes to received messages, alarm times, alert thresholds, and key word alerts) made on a first pager are wirelessly communicated to an infrastructure which automatically '------------------ ---- ---- -- --- 119FH081 Page 4 Serial Number: 08/522,026 Art Unit: 2211 communicates such status changes to other pagers, thus causing the other pagers to make corresponding changes in their status. Conclusion 7. Any comments considered necessary by applicant must be submitted no later than the payment of the Issue Fee and, to avoid processing delays, should preferably accompany the Issue Fee. Such submissions should be clearly labeled "Comments on Statement of Reasons for Allowance." 8.
