Description

^ 7r C4 1 4 1 PORTABLE TELEPHONE The present invention relates to a

portable telephone with speed-dialling facility which can record various pieces of information such as a call duration, for each speed dialling number.

Further, the present invention relates to a portable telephone having a memory from which can be retrieved various pieces of information, such as call durations, to an external device such as a printer or other peripheral.

Portable telephones are typical mobile communication devices for individuals. Specifically, portable telephones are connected with a telephone line system via a radio link and are marketed in the form of portable wireless devices. The portable telephone is quite compact, combining a handset, a dialling key pad and a signal receiving and transmitting antenna as a single unit. Increasing use is being made of such telephones due to their portability and convenience.

The latest portable telephones have various functions. For example, a user can enjoy a socalled speed dialling function (or one-touch dialling function). This function may be used when the user often dials a certain number. Specifically. a particular speed dialling number is registered in the portable telephone and the user presses the speed dialling number instead of dialling the full telephone number. Generally, about 100 telephone numbers can be registered in the form of speed dialling numbers in the portable telephone.

Currently, the charge for using a portable telephone for communication within a 160 km area during the day (8 a.m.-7 p.m.) on weekdays is 10 yen/6.5 seconds in Japan. This is much more expensive than an ordinary telephone. Therefore, in order to save telephone charges, the connection time should be reduced and the user should always pay attention to the period of time spent talking.

2 Conventionally, the call duration is manually measured by a stopwatch or a timer. However. this manual measuring is troublesome and cannot provide a precise measurement of call duration. In actual fact, the user hardly ever measures his call duration.

Thus, it would be very convenient to provide a simple automatic device to record various pieces of information such as call duration as well as date and time of the call.

However, no conventional portable telephones have such an automatic device.

An object of the present invention is to provide a portable telephone including an automatic device which can record various pieces of information, such as call durations and/or date and time of calls, for each speed dialling number.

Another object of the present invention is to provide a portable telephone which can record various pieces of information such as call durations as well as date and time of the call, in a memory, from which these pieces of information may be later retrieved as desired.

According to the first aspect of the present invention, there is provided a portable telephone which comprises a memory having an area for recording call durations and dates and times of calls for each speed dialling number, timer means for measuring the call duration and dates and times of calls when a speed dialling number is used, and writing means for writing the call durations with respective date and time information into the memory area to which the same speed dialling number is assigned. If the user of the portable telephone presses a certain speed dialling number and talks with somebody, the timer means counts the call duration, date and time, and these data are written into the memory area corresponding to that speed dialling number. The speed dialling number corresponds to a full telephone number of a receiving party and is registered in the portable telephone beforehand.

3 According to the second aspect of the present invention, there is provided a portable telephone which comprises memory for recording call durations and the date and time of each call for each speed dialling number and an interface for outputting contents of the memory to an external device. The contents of the memory may be output to, for example, a printer or a personal computer via the interface.

These and other aspects. objects and advantages of the present invention will be more.apparent from a following detailed description as read in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1 is a block diagram showing a schematic structure of a portable telephone according to a first embodiment of the present invention; Figure 2 is a flowchart showing a series of procedures carried out when.a call is started using the portable telephone of Figure 1; Figure 3 is a set of views, in which 3(a) shows call durations and dates for each speed dialling number and 3(b) shows a memory content which indicates the latest data; Figure 4 is a block diagram of circuitry when the portable telephone of Figure 1 is connected to an external device; Figure 5 illustrates a flowchart when memory contents are output from a memory to an external device; and Figure 6 illustrates an example of a printout of the call durations, dates and times printed out from a RAM of the portable telephone of Figure 4.

Now, preferred embodiments of the present invention will be described in reference to the accompanying drawings.

First, a first embodiment of the present invention will be explained with reference to Figures 1-3.

Illustrated in Figure 1 is a block diagram of a portable telephone 8 according to a first embodiment of the present invention.

4 The portable telephone 8 includes a controller 1, a signal receiver/transmitter 2, a unit which functions as telephone 3, a display 4, a RAM 5 and a ROM 6. The controller 1 is comprised of CPU (microcomputer) and other elements. The controller 1 is provided with a timer 11 for measuring time such as the duration of a call.

The signal receiver/transmitter 2 (as indicated by the single-dot line in Figure 1) includes a signal receiving/transmitting antenna 20, a duplexer 21 for dividing the receiving/transmitting signal, a signal receiver 22,. a signal transmitter 24, frequency synthesisers 23, 26 for channel switching and a path switch for the receiving/transmitting signal 25.

The telephone unit 3 (as indicated by the broken line in the illustration) includes a voice receiver (speaker) 30, an operation panel 31 and a voice transmitter (microphone) 32. In the operation panel 31, included are a speed dialling key unit 310 and other keys (ten key set, function keys and so on. not shown). A number of telephone numbers are registered in the key unit 310 in the form of speed dialling numbers.

The controller 1 supervises the signal receiver/transmitter 2, the telephone unit 3, the display 4, the RAM 5 and the ROM 6 such that the portable telephone 8 properly functions as a portable telephone. Upon the start of voice communication using the speed dialling number, the timer 11 of the controller 1 starts counting the duration of the call and records the date and time of communication. The signal receiver/transmitter 2 is provided to receive/transmit radio signals since the portable telephone 8 is a wireless device. The telephone unit 3 allows the user to perform the dialling operation and the voice communication in the same manner as an ordinary telephone. The display unit 4 generally displays, for example, the telephone number of the called party, which is dialled based on the speed dialling number dialled if the speed dialling key 310 is used. The telephone number may be dialled without any speed dialling number by using a dial key unit (not shown) provided on the operation panel 31. In this embodiment, a display monitor (not shown) is employed to display the call duration, date and time of the call for each speed dialling number, all of which are recorded in the memory. The RAM 5 records the call duration, date and time as the user manipulates the speed dialling key 310 to start the voice communication.

Next, with reference to the flowchart of Figure 2 and the memory contents (call durations, dates and times) shown in Figure 3, the operation for recording the latest data (latest call duration with date and time) when the speed dialling key 310 is used will be explained.

Figure 2 is a flowchart showing a series of operations carried out when the portable telephone 8 of Figure 1 is used to call a party.

Upon calling the party, it is judged whether or not the call is made using the speed dialling number key 310 provided on the operation panel 31 (S1). If the user has not used the speed dialling number key 310. i.e., if the user has used the dial key (not shown) provided on the operation panel 31 to input the telephone number of the party, a sub routine for normal voice communication starts (S2).

If the call is made using the speed dialling number key 310, then it is confirmed if the voice communication has started or not (S3). If the voice communication has started. the timer 11 is turned on and the counting of the call duration starts and the date and time are recorded (S4). Then, it is judged if the voice communication Is completed (SS). If the voice communication is completed, the timer 11 is turned off and the counting of the call duration, date and time stops (S6).

The call duration and the date and time of communication counted at S6 are written into the memory area which is assigned the same speed dialling number as that just used in this voice communication (S7).

Figure 3 is a view. useful for explaining the memory contents. namely the call duration, date and time for the respective speed dialling numbers.

6 Explained below is a case where the speed dialling number 00 is used. Referring to Figure 3(a), if the user used the portable telephone 8 for a 3-minute period on July lst, a 2-minute period on July Sth. a 1-minute period on July 10th and a 30-second period on July 15th, the memory content on July 16th recorded in the memory area having the number 00 indicates a 30-second period at 15.23 (time and minute of a day) on July 15th. as illustrated in Figure 3(b). This memory content is the latest information, i.e., what the user did at 15:23 on July 15th. The total (sum) of the call durations is also recorded in the memory. which may be reset by the user with the function keys (not shown) provided on the operation panel 31.

If the user used the portable telephone 8 for a 5-min period on July 3rd and a 10-min period on July 8th using the speed dialling number 01, the content of the memory on July 16th indicates the latest information, i.e., 10-min period at 10:10 on July 8th, as shown in Figure 3(b). The sum of the call durations is also recorded in the memory. This sum is erasable if the user so wishes, by manipulating the function keys (not shown) provided on the operation panel 31.

As described above, if the portable telephone 8 of this embodiment is used, the duration, date and time of the latest calls are respectively recorded for the speed dialling numbers 00-99.

Further, if the user wants to see the content recorded in the memory, the display monitor (not shown) provided in the display unit 4 displays the duration. date and time of the latest call for each speed dialling number.

In the foregoing, the teaching of the present invention is applied to the portable tele6hone, but it may equally be applied to a cordless telephone on to a facsimile machine.

Now, a second embodiment of the present invention will be explained with reference to Figures 4-6.

Figure 4 shows a block diagram of a portable telephone 10 of the present invention which is connected to an external device 80.

j J1 7 First, circuitry to drive the external device 80 (as indicated by doubledot line in Figure 4) and connected with the portable telephone 10 (as indicated by the broken line in the illustration) will be described with particular reference to Figure 4.

In order to drive the external device 80, the external device 80 is connected to the portable telephone 10 via an interface 7. as depicted in Figure 4, such that the controller 1 of the portable telephone 10 can communicate with a CPU 82 of the external device 80.

A printer may be employed as the external device 80 so that the call durations, dates and times for each speed dialling number recorded in the RAM 5 of the portable telephone 10 can be printed. The external device 80 includes an operation key 81, a CPU 82, a ROM 83 and a printing device 84.

Components or elements which constitute the portable telephone 10 are given the same numerals as those of the portable telephone 8 of Figure 1, as long as they have the same or similar functions, and the explanation thereof is omitted here.

The procedure for recording in the memory the dates, times and durations of calls for each speed dialling number is the same as in the first embodiment. A major difference is that only the duration, date and time of the most recent call are recorded in the memory in the first embodiment. whereas the durations. dates and times of all calls are recorded in the memory in the second embodiment.

With particular reference to the flowchart of Figure 5, a series of operations for outputting the memory content to the external device 80 will be described.

First, it is judged if there is an operator's command to output the memory content to the external device (S8). If there has been such a command, it is checked if the external device (for example, a printer) 80 is connected to the interface 7 of the portable telephone 10 (S9). I the answer is NO, the display unit 4 8 indicates a message which may read "External Device Not Connected" (S10). On the other hand. if it is confirmed that the external device 80 has been connected with the portable telephone 10 via the interface 7, the call durations, dates and times of calls for each speed dialling number recorded in the RAM 5 are read out (S11). At the next step (S12), it is checked whether or not the reading operation has been completed for all the speed dialling numbers. If the answer is negative, the next speed dialling number is specified (S13).

Figure 6 depicts an example of a printout of data such as speed dialling number, call duration, date and time recorded in the RAM 5 of the portable telephone 10.

Explained below is a case where the speed dialling number 00 is used for the call. If the operator used the portable telephone 10 for a 15-min period from 11:00 to 11:15 on July lst, a 27-min period from 13:00 to 13:27 on July 5th, an 11-min period from 19:00 to 19:11 on July 10th and a 15-min period from 10:15 to 10:30 on July 15th, data relating to these four calls may be printed as shown in Figure 6.

Next, a case where the speed dialling number 01 is used will be explained. If the operator used the portable telephone 10 for a 5-min period from 9:30 to 9:35 on July 3rd, a 10-min period from 20:00 to 20:10 on July 8th and a 44-min period from 14:15 to 14:59 on July 13th, data relating to these three calls may be printed as shown in Figure 6, as in the case of speed dialling number 00.

As explained above, using the portable telephone 10 of this embodiment, it is possible to record in the RAM 5 the durations, dates and times of calls for 100 speed dialling numbers (00-99). Therefore, if the operator wants to print the data such as the call durations, dates and times recorded in the RAM 5, the external device 80 such as a printer is connected with the interface 7 of the portable telephone 10. In this way, data relating to call durations. dates and times for one month is recorded in the memory in the described manner, so that the operator can accurately administer the telephone charges of one month for each speed dialling number.

9 In the foregoing, the printer is employed as the external device 80. However. other devices (e.g., personal computer) may be employed. If the personal computer is selected as the external equipment 80, more detailed data administration may be possible since the personal computer can make a statistical table of the speed dialling numbers. call durations, dates and times for the month.

In the summary, according to the present invention, since the operator can control the call duration, date and time for the respective speed dialling numbers, an easy administration of the telephone charge, which is much more expensive than an ordinary telephone charge. becomes possible.

In addition, according to the present invention, since the portable telephone has the interface, to which the external device such as a printer or a personal computer may be connected, it is possible to display the data stored in the memory such as the dates, times and call durations for each speed dialling number. Accordingly, the telephone cost administration becomes easier and the operator can see at a glance how the portable telephone is used.

Further, since a speed dialling number which is not used as often as it was previously can be deleted and new speed dialling number can be registered. an effective use of speed dialling numbers is possible.
