                  MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER

   Adopted:  February 5, 2003           Released:   February   7, 
2003

By the Chief, Enforcement Bureau:

In this Order, we cancel a Notice of Apparent Liability for 
Forfeiture (``NAL'')1 that the Enforcement Bureau issued to USA 
Mobile Communications, Inc. II (``USA Mobile'') for apparent 
willful violation of 47 C.F.R.  52.15(f), which requires certain 
carriers to report number utilization and forecast data.  We 
issued the NAL because it appeared that USA Mobile had failed to 
report on its actual and forecast number usage by filing FCC Form 
502, the North American Numbering Plan Numbering Resource 
Utilization/Forecast (``NRUF'') Report that was due on September 
15, 2000.2

Arch Wireless, Inc. (``Arch'') responded to the NAL.  Arch had 
acquired USA Mobile prior to the September 15, 2000 reporting 
deadline through an assignment of license, and USA Mobile no 
longer existed prior to September 15, 2000.  After considering 
Arch's response and reviewing the record, we find that the 
proposed monetary forfeiture should be cancelled. 3

Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED THAT, pursuant to 47 U.S.C.  504(b) 
and 47 C.F.R.  1.80(f)(4), the NAL issued to USA Mobile 
Communications, Inc. II IS HEREBY CANCELLED.  

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that a copy of this Order shall be sent by 
Certified Mail/Return Receipt Requested, to Arch Wireless, Inc., 
1800 West Park Drive, Suite 250, 
Westborough, MA  01581 and to its counsel, L. Charles Keller, 
Esq., Wilkinson Barker Knauer, LLP, 2300 N Street, N.W., Suite 
700, Washington, DC  20037-1128.
