  • Publication number: 20020115429
    Abstract: A communication system has a 2-way wireless voice network such as a Bluetooth or cellular network and a 1-way wireless voice network such as the ClariCAST™ network. A wireless device has both a 2-way transceiver for completing voice calls and a 1-way receiver for receiving voicemail. If a 2-way call is truncated, then the caller is forwarded to a voicemail system. The voicemail is then transmitted to the wireless device over the 1-way network. If the wireless device connects to the voicemail server while the caller is connected to the voicemail system then the coupling between the caller and the wireless device is re-established.

  • Publication number: 20020067705
    Abstract: A hybrid communication system communicates at least a portion of a massage from a message server to a portable device using a wide area communication system such as a one-way communication operating on an FM SCA spectrum. The message may be a digitized voice message. Upon hearing the message, a user of the portable device records an audio response which is stored as a digital reply. When the portable device travels in range of a local area node such as a short range node communicating on the ISM band. Communication is established and a bartering process allows the message to be relayed from the portable device through the local area node relay and back to the message server. The bartering operation requires an act or omission by the portable device and/or its user in exchange for the bandwidth used to relay the response.

  • Patent number: 5579535
    Abstract: A personal communication system (10) comprises transceiver stations (12, 14, 16, 18) providing communication capability between one or more portable radiotelephones (20, 22, 24) and a telephone network (30). One or more of the transceiver stations (12, 14, 16, 18) is further capable of storing a data base and of transmitting the same in response to a request for such transmission being received from a portable radiotelephone (20, 22, or 24) communicating therewith. The portable radiotelephone (20, 22, or 24) communicating therewith is capable thereafter of receiving the data base and of presenting at least a portion of the same to the radiotelephone subscriber.

  • Patent number: 5422733
    Abstract: A selective call communication system (10) has a scanner (14) for retrieving information from a source document (26). The source document (26) includes a region of interest (42) formatted in at least two format regions (50, 52, 54). The at least two format regions (50, 52, 54) include a first format region (50, 52) designated for a first type information, and a second format region (54) designated for a second type information. The scanner (14) further includes an encoder (708) for encoding and compressing the information; and a modem (710), coupled to the encoder (708), for transferring the information to a selective call terminal (28). The selective call terminal (28) has a receiver (202) for receiving the information; and a processor (20), coupled to the receiver (202), for processing the information.

  • Patent number: 5420692
    Abstract: A decoder for decoding a target image from a signal. The signal includes S facsimile encoded sub-image messages transmitted in a predetermined order. The decoder also stores a runlength code book. The decoder includes a facsimile decoder (910), a sub-image memory (920), a target image generator (940), and a target image memory (930). The facsimile decoder (910) is for generating S sub-images from the S facsimile encoded sub-image messages, using the runlength code book. Each of the S sub-images includes sub-image lines includes pixels. The sub-image memory (920) is for storing the S sub-images. The target image generator (940) is for re-assembling the target image from the S sub-images. The target image memory (930) is for storing the target image.
