Apr 17, 2001, 01:00 ET from WebLink Wireless, Inc.

    DALLAS, April 17 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 WebLink Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq:   WLNK) today announces it is offering
 information on demand from OracleMobile.  Now all WebLink Wireless 2-way
 subscribers can access more than 16 different personalized Internet-based
 information services from their devices.
     OracleMobile delivers up-to-date information to 2-way consumers such as
 movie listings, ebay auctions, dictionary help and travel info.  The service
 can be received on a 2-way powered by WebLink Wireless such as Motorola's
 Talkabout(R) Model T900 2-way and Motorola's Timeport P935 and Glenayre's
 AccessLink II.
     To get desired information, customers send a short command to the email
 address ask@oraclemobile.com from their 2-way devices and OracleMobile sends
 back the requested information.  For example, to receive the weather report
 for the zip code 75219, the command "weather 75219" would be sent.
 Subscribers can also set alerts to be sent to their 2-way for important
 personalized information such as stock value changes, flight changes and
 package tracking status.
     "OracleMobile is extremely useful for everyday on-the-go consumers who
 want information ranging from what time movies begin to weather reports so
 they know if they're having soccer practice," said Topper Pardoe, vice
 president of marketing for WebLink Wireless.  "We chose to team with
 OracleMobile because they offer a high quality and reliable service allowing
 consumers to continue with daily activities while getting information on
 things important to them."
     The OracleMobile service is provided at no extra charge, with each command
 sent and message received simply going against the monthly message count.
 WebLink Wireless subscribers can sign up for and manage their OracleMobile
 accounts via the site
