AbstractA selective call receiver, such as a pager, has a real-time clock and is capable of determining the response of the receiver to a message in accordance with a status associated with that message. The selective call receiver can also change the status at a selected time or if a characteristic of the message matches a predetermined characteristic. Additionally the selective call receiver may choose from a plurality of priorities a priority of a received message in order to determine if a message stored in the memory of the selective call receiver will be deleted by the received message. The selective call receiver is further capable of determining the type of data decoded by an address with respect to the time of day.
