AbstractA method and apparatus for completing an inbound call from a telephone system to a portable communication unit (104) operating in a communication system comprising a base station (102) coupled to the telephone system (106, 124). The telephone system (106, 124) can complete the inbound call by different procedures requiring differing responses. The portable (104) receives (502) a selective call message (400) comprising a Call-Type Identifier (402) and a Call-Completion Number (412, 414, 416), and then transmits (520, 522, 524) to the base (102) the Call-Completion Number (412, 414, 416) and a Call-Type Code corresponding to the received Call-Type Identifier (402). The base (102) originates (606, 624) a call to the telephone system (106, 124) in accordance with the Call-Completion Number (412, 414, 416) and the Call-Type Code, and then completes the inbound call according to the Call-Type Code.
