A location registration/paging procedure which is free from location registration area design is proposed. Each base station (BS) broadcasts a "responsibility area", composed of its own and neighboring cells' identification (ID). A mobile station (MS) makes a new location registration request when the current BS's responsibility area does not include the MS's registered location. Each BS is allowed to decide its own responsibility area autonomously based on route information, which is composed of neighboring cells' ID and reported from MSs. Therefore, the responsibility area can be adaptively changed based on MSs' moving characteristics. Moreover, this procedure solves the problems of registration traffic concentration and excess registration request on boundary BSs.
