Abstract

Records are maintained of both the normal home network and time zone of the user of the device and also the network and time zone in which the device is operating. A comparison of these records, optionally in conjunction with other relevant information such as caller identity information (CID) or the user's contacts or address book information, is used for incoming call management. For example, a call received at an antisocial time in the user's current location is not passed to the user, with a recorded message being played to the caller, preferably in the language of the caller, specifying the time zone in which the user is currently located, along with the local time. The caller may then abort the call without disturbing the recipient, divert to voicemail, or continue with the call if it still considered sufficiently urgent with the information then known to the caller. The call management system may self cancel when the user returns to the home network and time zone.
