A telephone handset and remote controller apparatus for transmitting information such as phone numbers and addresses for storing in a messaging device. The telephone handset and remote controller apparatus includes a housing and a plurality of actuators disposed on the housing for allowing information to be input into memory in the telephone handset and remote controller apparatus and to allow control of the operation of the telephone handset and remote controller apparatus. A radiofrequency transceiver included in the telephone handset and remote controller apparatus is responsive to the actuation of the actuators, and transmits a television control signal for controlling a television receiver in response to actuation of at least a first of the actuators, transmits a first radiofrequency signal for providing a radiofrequency communications link in response to actuation of at least a second of the actuators, and transmits to the messaging device, a second radiofrequency signal encoded with the information in response to actuation of at least a third of the actuators. The radiofrequency transceiver in the telephone handset and remote controller apparatus receives radiofrequency communication signals from an associated base station, and if the messaging device is bidirectional, also receives messaging signals from the messaging device. The telephone handset and remote controller apparatus may also have a data connector so that it may be connected to a computer in order to receive downloaded information such as software updates and the like and transmit such information to the messaging device.
