Detailed Description

Referring to fig. 1, fig. 1 is a flowchart illustrating a method for processing a phone number by a mobile terminal according to an embodiment of the present invention. As shown in fig. 1, the method of the present embodiment includes the following steps:

step S1: a first phone number that is no longer used by the contact is marked as obsolete, wherein the first phone number is associated with the contact.

The method specifically comprises the steps that a stale marking option is provided for each telephone number, and when a contact person does not use the telephone number any more, the stale marking option corresponding to the telephone number is selected.

Step S2: when the user needs to read the telephone number of the contact person, the user is prompted that the first telephone number of the contact person is out of date, or the first telephone number is directly filtered.

In this embodiment, a second phone number is further added to be associated with the contact, so that when the user needs to read the phone number of the contact, the second phone number of the contact is provided.

Specifically, the method comprises the steps of firstly judging whether a user obtains the telephone number of a contact person through a system application or obtains the telephone number of the contact person through a non-system application, and if the user obtains the telephone number of the contact person through the system application, prompting the user that the first telephone number of the contact person is out of date, and providing the second telephone number of the contact person to the user. And if the user obtains the telephone number of the contact through the non-system application, directly filtering the first telephone number of the contact and providing the second telephone number of the contact. The system applications comprise applications such as contact applications, telephone applications and short message applications, and the non-system applications comprise third-party applications installed by the user, such as applications of WeChat, QQ and Paibao.

In this embodiment, the steps of marking the first phone number as obsolete and adding the second phone number of step S1 may be performed simultaneously. The method comprises the following specific steps:

referring to fig. 2, fig. 2 is a diagram illustrating a relationship between applications and a database storing phone numbers according to an embodiment of the present invention. In a mobile terminal, the telephone number is typically stored in the database 26 of the system. The respective application 21-24 then reads these telephone numbers and their associated information, such as associated contacts, notes, phone and third party applications, etc., via the associated interface. For example, in an android system, the system provides a contentprovider (a data providing object in which multiple applications can share access data) to facilitate the applications to access the phone numbers and associated information stored in the database 26, the contentprovider object is named as a contentprovider interface 25, and the contentprovider interface 25 manages the database 26 and provides query functions for other applications, and the structure of the contentprovider is shown in fig. 2.

To mark that the first phone number is outdated, the embodiment adds a list of timeout attributes (outdated) to the database 26, where a value of timeout is 0, which indicates that the phone number is normal, and a value of timeout is 1, which indicates that the phone number is outdated. It should be understood that it can also be set to represent that the phone number is outdated when the value of timeout is 0, and to represent that the phone number is normal and not outdated when the value of timeout is 1.

The contectsprovider interface 25 provides functions for querying, modifying, etc. applications. The application may query whether a telephone number is out-of-date via the contectsprovider interface 25 or may mark a telephone number as out-of-date via the contectsprovider interface 25. A new telephone number may also be added to the database 26 via the contectsprovider interface 25 and associated with a contact stored therein.

Specifically, when the user clicks on the contacts application 22, a jump is made to the contacts interface, and all contacts in the database 26 and their associated telephone numbers are provided to the user via the ontactsProvider interface 25. When a user needs to modify the telephone number of a certain contact person, the user clicks an editing button, then the user jumps to an interface for compiling the contact person, and a contact person compiling function is provided for the user to compile. Referring also to fig. 3, fig. 3 illustrates an interface for compiling contacts. After each telephone number there is a selection box 31 for providing a obsolete marking option, and the user can select whether a telephone number is marked as obsolete by clicking on this selection box 31.

Specifically, the example is that when the value of timeout is 0, the telephone number is normal and not outdated, and when the value of timeout is 1, the telephone number is outdated. As shown in fig. 3, if the telephone number beginning with 139 is marked as out-of-date, when the user clicks on the selection box 31 corresponding to the telephone number beginning with 139, the contact application 22 modifies the timeout value in the database 26 corresponding to the telephone number to 1 through the contectsrovider interface 25. Then the contact is re-read to learn that the telephone number is out of date. While the timeout value for another phone number for the contact beginning with 138 will remain at the default 0.

Usually, the user will see the phone numbers of the contacts when viewing the contact details (contact application), viewing the call records (phone application), and viewing the short messages (short message application), so the embodiment uses the relevant phone numbers with obvious marks to remind the user that the phone numbers are outdated on the interface of the applications.

In this embodiment, the description of displaying the outdated phone number is as follows:

see fig. 4 for a telephone number display in the contacts application 22. Taking the android system as an example, now when the android system views the contact details, the interface shown in fig. 4 is displayed (a proper simplification is made in fig. 4, and irrelevant contents are removed). When the user clicks on a contact, the contact application 22 reads the relevant information of the contact in the database 26 through the contectsprovider interface 25 and displays the information in the interface of fig. 4. Taking the previous example, when reading the timeout value of 1 for a telephone number beginning with 139, the contact application 22 overlays the telephone icon before this telephone number and the short message icon after this telephone number with an outdated icon, as shown by the black icon 41 in the figure. Through the covered icon, the user can know that the telephone number is out of date and cannot directly send a short message to the telephone number or call back. If the user still needs to select to use the phone number to send a short message or make a call, the user will be prompted that the phone number is out of date, and the specific prompt will be described in detail later.

See fig. 5 for phone number display in a phone application. The user usually checks the call log in the phone application 21 to find the past phone number and then performs operations such as callback. In call logging, each record is typically displayed in an interface as described in fig. 5. The information includes name, incoming time, and phone number. When displaying the call records, the phone application 21 first searches the database according to the phone number in each call record to find out the associated contact. If the timeout column of the corresponding phone number is 1 when the phone number is searched, when the name of the associated contact is displayed, an icon, such as a black icon 51 in fig. 5, is overlaid on the name to show that the phone number is outdated and is no longer the phone number currently used by the contact. It is of course also possible to overlay the same black icon on the following phone icon to mark the phone number as obsolete. If the user still needs to select to call back the phone number, the user is prompted that the phone number is out of date, and the specific prompt will be described in detail later.

Please refer to fig. 6 for the phone number display in the sms application. The short message records in the short message application 23 of the user are usually grouped by phone numbers, and all the past short message records or multimedia messages of the same phone number can be viewed on the same short message interface, which is shown in fig. 6. When the short message interface is opened, the short message application 23 will query the database according to the current phone number to query the phone number and the name of the contact in the relationship. If the timeout value of the phone number is 1, the phone number is considered to be outdated, and a black icon 61 (as shown in fig. 6) is overlaid on the name of the contact related to the phone number during display so as to display that the phone number is no longer the contact, and a call should not be dialed or a short message should not be replied. Of course, the same black icon may also be overlaid on the send message and phone icons to prompt the user. If the user still needs to select to use the phone number to send a short message or make a call, the user will be prompted that the phone number is out of date, and the specific prompt will be described in detail later.

The foregoing is a black icon to indicate that the phone number is out of date. It should be understood that the prompt may be presented in other forms of icons or text, etc.

Referring to fig. 7, fig. 7 is a schematic diagram of an interface for prompting a user that a phone number is outdated. If the user wants to send a short message or make a call through the telephone number marked as obsolete, the system will jump out of the prompt interface shown in fig. 7 to remind the user that the telephone number is obsolete, and inform the user that the wrong person may be called if the user sends a message or makes a call. And provides the user with a cancel key 71 and a continue key 72. If the user selects the cancel button 71, the short message is not sent or the relevant telephone is not called. If the user selects the continue button 72, it indicates that the user knows the telephone number is out of date, but still wants to make a call or send a short message with the telephone number, and then the user continues to send the short message or make a corresponding call.

The above is the reminding situation when reading out the outdated phone number through the system application. The case of reading out an outdated phone number by a non-system application, i.e. a third party application, will be described below.

For the third party application 24 installed by the user, when reading the telephone number, if the telephone number is outdated, the contectsrovider interface 25 masks the telephone number, and prevents the third party application 24 from reading. Thus preventing erroneous operation.

As mentioned above, for the system applications, such as the phone application 21, the contact application 22 and the sms application 23, the embodiment provides the corresponding mark, but the third-party application 24 installed by the user does not provide the mark, so that it is easier to determine whether the system application is the system application. When the contectsprovider interface 25 queries the telephone number, if the timeout value of the telephone number is 1, whether the application is a system application is further judged in one step, and if not, the outdated telephone number is not filtered, so that the outdated telephone number cannot be read by the third-party application 24 installed by the user, and wrong behaviors are avoided.

The present invention further provides a mobile terminal for executing the method described above, and specifically refer to fig. 8, where fig. 8 is a schematic structural diagram of the mobile terminal according to the present invention.

As shown in fig. 8, the mobile terminal 10 of the present embodiment includes a marking module 11 and a processing module 12.

Wherein the marking module 11 is configured to mark a first phone number, which is no longer used by the contact, as obsolete, wherein the first phone number is associated with the contact. Specifically, the tagging module 11 provides an outdated tagging option for each phone number, and when the first phone number is no longer used by the contact, the outdated tagging option corresponding to the first phone number is selected. For the specific operation, please refer to the above description, which is not repeated herein.

The processing module 12 is configured to prompt the user that the first phone number of the contact person is out of date or directly filter the first phone number when the user needs to read the phone number of the contact person.

Optionally, the mobile terminal 10 further comprises a new phone number module 13 for adding a second phone number associated with the contact. The processing module 12 further provides a second phone number for the contact when the user needs to read the phone number of the contact.

Optionally, the processing module 12 includes a judging unit 121, a prompting unit 122 and a number providing unit 123. The judging unit 121 is configured to judge whether the user obtains the phone number of the contact through the system application or obtains the phone number of the contact through the non-system application. The prompting unit 122 is configured to prompt the user that the first phone number of the contact person is out of date when the user obtains the phone number of the contact person through the system application, the number providing unit 123 is configured to provide the second phone number of the contact person to the user, and when the user obtains the phone number of the contact person through the non-system application, the number providing unit 123 directly filters the first phone number of the contact person and provides the second phone number of the contact person. The system application comprises a telephone application and a short message application, and the non-system application comprises a third-party application installed by the user. The prompting process and the filtering process of each application are as described above, and are not described herein again.

In summary, the invention can mark the telephone number which is no longer used by the contact as obsolete, but not delete the telephone number, and can select the contact to establish the association with the new telephone number, so that the user can know that the corresponding telephone number is obsolete through the mark, and can select the new telephone number associated with the contact to contact when the user contacts the contact. On the other hand, when the third-party application installed by the user inquires the telephone number of the contact person, the outdated telephone numbers are filtered out, so that the applications cannot read wrong information. It should be understood that if the telephone number is not out of date, no special processing is done.

The above description is only an embodiment of the present invention, and not intended to limit the scope of the present invention, and all modifications of equivalent structures and equivalent processes performed by the present specification and drawings, or directly or indirectly applied to other related technical fields, are included in the scope of the present invention.
