  • Patent number: 10003697
    Abstract: Methods and devices provide access to a sponsored data service (SDS) via a mobile device. A method may include receiving information identifying attributes to ascertain whether a user qualifies to access sponsored data, where an attribute from the identified attributes may include a position of the mobile device or a time of access to the SDS. The method may include determining parameters associated with the attributes. The method may further include sending the parameters to a validation device, where the validation device determines, based on the parameters, whether the user qualifies to receive sponsored data. The method also includes receiving a network address from the validation device, in response to the validation device determining that the user qualifies to receive sponsored data, and accessing sponsored data from a device associated with the network address.

  • Patent number: 9164658
    Abstract: In one aspect, a method is provided for providing a flexible content selection capability for selecting a specific portion of content displayed on a touch-screen display of a user's computing device. In response to receiving user input including a plurality of touch points detected within a content display area of the touch-screen display, a relative location of each detected touch point is determined with respect to the content display area. Content displayed within a portion of the first content display area of the touch-screen display is automatically selected based on the determined relative locations of the plurality of detected touch points. A content selection region including the selected content is graphically presented within the content display area. A context menu including user options for invoking functions related to the selected content is then displayed in association with the content selection region via the touch-screen display.

  • Patent number: 9125004
    Abstract: The sharing of content from one mobile station with a group of mobile stations using near-field communication (NFC) may be initiated, for example, by the one mobile station establishing a NFC link with another mobile station. The one mobile station verifies that the linked mobile station is part of the group, and transmits information regarding the content to be shared to the linked mobile station using NFC. The one mobile station uploads the content to a server using the mobile communication network, such that the content can be retrieved from the server via the mobile communication network by all other mobile stations in the group. The one mobile station or the server can send a notification to the other mobile stations in the group including information for retrieving the uploaded content.

  • Patent number: 9105012
    Abstract: Account information associated with a mobile device is obtained through a mobile wireless communication network from a database of subscriber account records for mobile wireless communication service subscribers. The account information may identify the previous mobile device, the mobile device, and/or length of usage of the mobile device. Advice information is selected from a database of advice regarding operation of the mobile devices such that the selected advice information is adapted for the account, and the selected advice information is then provided via a user interface element of the mobile device. Additionally, multiple levels of search related phrases, in which the phrases at each level correspond to a user-selected phrase at the previous level, are presented via a user element of a mobile device.
