We say that two arithmetic functions f and g form a Mobius pair if f(n) = \sum_{d \mid n} g(d) for all natural numbers n. In that case, g can be expressed in terms of f by the familiar Mobius inversion formula of elementary number theory. In a previous paper, the first-named author showed that if the members f and g of a Mobius pair are both finitely supported, then both functions vanish identically. Here we prove two significantly stronger versions of this uncertainty principle. A corollary is
