  • Publication number: 20070232263
    Abstract: An apparatus comprising a server is provided. The server is operable to gather authenticated transaction data to generate billing for wireless devices conducting transactions across a wireless network, receive transaction event data from one or more wireless devices, authenticate the transaction event data, and aggregate the authenticated transaction event data into transaction event billing data such that each transaction event is billable to a specific wireless device that effected the transaction event. The transaction event data is caused by one or more billable transaction events generated by the specific wireless device interacting with a computer device over the wireless network. Each of the billable transaction events is capable of generating an authenticated transaction event data configured to verify that a specific billable transaction event has been generated by a specific wireless device. Each authenticated transaction event data includes a first key and a second key.

  • Publication number: 20070232366
    Abstract: The disclosure is directed to a mobile communication device that may receive wireless broadcast signals from a number of different base stations or transmitters. The device alternates its operation between a low-power mode and a higher-power mode to conserve battery power. The length of time the device remains in the sleep mode is its sleep interval. The sleep interval is a function of two components. One component is set by the wireless broadcast network and the other component is set by the carrier that provisions the mobile communications device. When the device awakens from the sleep mode, it can check the status of any notification messages. If there are any updates, then it will process them. If there are no updates, then it will return to the low-power mode.

  • Patent number: 7266519
    Abstract: A system, method, and computer program for billing wireless device subscribers based upon billable interaction with applications and services resident on third party computer devices that are accessible through a wireless network. The system uses authenticatable transaction data that is created when a wireless device conducts a billable transaction whereby the data is a secure indication that a wireless device has performed a specific billable transaction event. The transaction data can be authenticated and then aggregated to generate billing for billable transaction events that occur on the wireless network. The billing can occur from a billing computer on the network or the aggregated data can be sent to a wireless service provider for ultimate billing to the wireless device subscriber.
