A mobile device and associated methods are disclosed that allow a mobile device subject to a communication restriction from a wireless network to respond to a priority call. If a call in the wireless network is destined for the mobile device, then the mobile device receives a paging request message for the call from the wireless network. The mobile device then determines if the call is a priority call. If the call is a priority call, then the mobile device determines that it is exempt from the communication restriction. The mobile device may be exempt for this particular call, for a defined time period, etc. The mobile device may then transmit a response message to the wireless network to initiate the setup of the priority call to the mobile device.
1. A method of operating a mobile device subject to a communication restriction from a wireless network, the method comprising:
receiving a paging request message for a call from said wireless network;
determining if said call is a priority call;
determining that said mobile device is exempt from said communication restriction responsive to determining that said call is a priority call, and
wherein said paging request message includes a priority flag and wherein determining if said call is a priority call comprises processing said priority flag to determine that said call is a priority call.
