  • Patent number: 7885394
    Abstract: A method (10) and system (200, 400, or 500) of call reverse can include initiating (12) a call by an originating party (204) to a terminating party (208), comparing (14) rate plans, and automatically reversing (26) the call if a rate plan for the terminating party is currently more economical than a rate plan for the originating party. The method can compare (22) rate plans at a server (206) having rate plan information for the parties. Alternatively, the method can send (16) rate plan information for the originating to the terminating party and compare rate plans at the terminating party. The method can pre-store (20) rate plan information for the originating party at a memory at the terminating party. The method can also use (24) Caller ID to detect a call from the originating party and compare pre-stored rate plan information for the originating party stored at the terminating party.

    Abstract: A telecommunication device (200) adaptable for elderly users (105). The telecommunication device can include a user classifier (205) and one or more audio processors (215 and 220). The user classifier can establish one of several categories for a device user, wherein the category determines at least one configurable setting of the telecommunication device. One of the several categories indicates that a user is elderly or subjectively elderly. The audio processors can digitally processes audio streams for the telecommunication device. At least one configurable setting can adjust operations of the audio processors so that the processors operate differently for users classified as elderly than for users not classified as elderly. The audio processors can include an incoming audio processor (215) and an outgoing audio processor (220).

  • Publication number: 20050255871
    Abstract: The invention concerns a method (300) and system (100) for interrupting a dispatch call. The method can be practiced in a dispatch communications system (100) having at least a first communications channel (162) for carrying voice traffic and a second communications channel (164) for carrying communications-enabling information. The method includes the steps of assigning (312) the first communications channel to at least a first caller (133) and a second caller (135) to permit the first and second callers to engage in a dispatch call and as the first caller has control over the first communications channel, transmitting (314) an interrupt message (505) over the second communications channel to inform the first caller of an interrupt status of the second caller. The transmitting step is performed without terminating the dispatch call.
