If a service subscriber wants to establish a voice broadcast call while not subscribed to the service or the network cannot provide the service for some reason, an indication shall be provided to the calling service subscriber to notify him with the reason of failure.

If a dispatcher wants to establish a voice broadcast call while not entitled to do it or the network cannot provide the service for some reason, the call shall be rejected. The network shall give an appropriate indication to calling dispatchers who are GSM subscribers.

If a voice broadcast call cannot be established to all cells and dispatchers in a pre-set time, the call shall be considered established provided that at least the originated cell in case of a service subscriber originated broadcast call or any one cell within the group call area in case of a dispatcher originated broadcast call has been included within this time.

If a cell is excluded from the group call area because of pre-emption, the voice broadcast call is maintained as long as the calling subscriber is not pre-empted.
