However, the present invention does not limit. As shown in FIG. 2, when the stored value state management method of the network connection of the present invention is applied to the user end, the steps S201 to S208 are included. The various steps of the method are described in detail below.

Step S201: It is determined whether the user terminal 10 has set a notification condition or an execution condition. Since the stored value state management system 1 of the network connection is based on the notification condition or execution condition set by the user terminal 10, it is used as a reference for judging whether to perform corresponding notification or operation, and therefore, when the system is executed, it is first determined. Whether the storage module of the user terminal 10 has stored the set notification condition or execution condition to determine whether the notification condition or the execution condition is set. If the foregoing conditions have not been set, the process proceeds to step S202; otherwise, the process proceeds to step S203.

Step S202: Display a setting interface on the user terminal 10 for the user to set a notification condition or an execution condition. When the system determines that the user terminal 10 does not set the notification condition or the execution condition, the processing module 13 generates a setting interface and displays it through the display module 14, so that the user can use the setting interface to input the notification condition to be set or Execution conditions are performed to complete the aforementioned condition setting.

Please refer to FIG. 3 as a schematic diagram of the setting interface 300 of the stored value state management method of the network connection of the present invention on the user end. As shown in FIG. 3, in an embodiment of the present invention, the setting interface 300 may include a notification condition field 301, a notification action enabling field 302, an execution condition field 303, an execution action field 304, and the like. The notification condition field 301 is used to set the sending timing of the notification message; the notification action enabling field 302 is used to set whether to send the notification message when the notification condition is satisfied; and the execution condition field 303 is used to set the sending timing of the response message corresponding to the execution operation; The execution operation field 304 is used to set an execution operation corresponding to the response message sent when the execution condition is satisfied. The timing of sending the foregoing notification message or response message may be determined according to the remaining state of the set stored value balance, including setting the remaining time, setting the remaining points or setting the remaining transmittable data amount. For example, in this embodiment, the notification message is sent when the remaining time of the connection is 20 minutes, and the response message for executing the automatic stored value is sent when the remaining time of the connection is 10 minutes. In addition, according to different settings of the execution operation field 304, when the execution condition is met, different response messages may be sent according to the setting to notify the server end to perform different operations. It should be noted that the format of the setting interface is only one embodiment of the present invention, and the setting interface is not limited thereto.

Step S203: Send an inquiry message to the server terminal 20. After the stored value state management system 1 of the network connection is executed, or after the determination of the notification condition and the execution condition is completed, the processing module 13 of the user terminal 10 notifies the transmission module 11 to send an inquiry through the network. The message is sent to the server terminal 20 to confirm to the server terminal 20 the stored value status information about the user's network connection.

Step S204: Receive the stored value status information corresponding to the inquiry message sent from the server end 20. After receiving the inquiry message, the processing module 22 searches the database 23 for the stored value status information of the user account corresponding to the user terminal 10 according to the inquiry message, and transmits the stored value status information through the transmission. The module 21 is transmitted back to the user terminal 10 and stored in the storage module 12 for subsequent processing. The stored value status information includes the remaining time, the remaining points or the remaining transmittable data amount obtained by converting the current stored value balance.

Step S205: determining whether the stored value status information has met the notification condition. After obtaining the stored value status information by the foregoing steps, the processing module 13 may compare the stored value status information with the set notification condition to determine whether the stored value status information has met the notification condition. For example, in the embodiment, the notification condition is that the remaining time of the connectable line is 20 minutes, and the obtained stored value status information is the current remaining time of the connection, so that the processing module 13 can perform the comparison judgment. Depending on the design, it is also possible to set the number of remaining points of the connection or the amount of remaining data that can be transmitted, etc., and is not limited to this embodiment. If the stored value status information matches the notification condition, the process proceeds to step S206; otherwise, the process proceeds to step S203, and the user terminal 10 transmits the inquiry message to the server terminal 20 again, so as to obtain the new stored value at any time. Status information, so the present invention will continuously update the storage status information for comparison.

Step S206: When the stored value status information meets the notification condition, the user terminal 10 displays a notification message to remind the user. When the processing module 13 determines that the remaining time of the current connection has been 20 minutes through the stored value status information, that is, the stored value status information has met the foregoing notification condition, and the processing module 13 generates a notification message and transmits the notification mode. Group 14 displays the message to alert the user. The notification message may be notified by the screen message or the voice message according to the design.

Step S207: determining whether the stored value status information meets the execution condition. The processing module 13 may also compare the stored value status information with the set execution conditions to determine whether the stored value status information has met the execution condition. For example, in the embodiment, the notification condition is that the remaining time of the connection is 10 minutes, and the obtained stored value status information is also the current remaining time of the connection, so that the processing module 13 can perform the comparison determination. At this time, if the stored value status information matches the notification condition, the process proceeds to step S208; otherwise, the process proceeds to step S203.

Step S208: When the stored value status information meets the execution condition, a response message is sent to notify the server end 20 to perform an automatic stored value operation or a network connection interruption operation. When the processing module 13 determines that the remaining time of the current connection has been left for 10 minutes through the stored value status information, that is, the stored value status information has met the foregoing execution condition, and the processing module 13 generates the operation according to the previously set execution operation. Corresponding response message to notify the server terminal 20 to perform the corresponding operation. The execution operation here includes an automatic stored value operation or a network connection interruption operation, wherein the automatic stored value operation is automatically stored by the server end 20 instead of the user account used by the user terminal 10 to maintain the stored value. The network connection is normally used; the network connection interruption operation directly cuts off the network connection of the user account used by the user terminal 10 by the server terminal 20, so that the user can store the value by himself according to the demand.

According to the stored value state management method of the network connection of the present invention, the user does not need to actively query the server side of the provider for the stored value state of the network connection used, and only needs to be set in advance. When the stored value balance is insufficient, a notification is issued or the stored value/disconnection operation is automatically performed to increase the convenience of use.

Please refer to FIG. 4, which is a flow chart of the stored value state management method of the network connection of the present invention on the server end. As shown in FIG. 4, when the stored value state management method of the network connection of the present invention is applied to the server end, the steps S401 to S404 are included. The various steps of the method are described in detail below.

Step S401: Receive an inquiry message of the user terminal 10. When the stored value state management system 1 of the network connection is executed, the transmission module 21 of the server terminal 20 will receive an inquiry message from any user terminal 10.

Step S402: transmitting the stored value status information of the corresponding inquiry message to the user terminal 10. After receiving the inquiry message, the processing module 22 searches the database 23 for the stored value status information of the user account corresponding to the user terminal 10 according to the inquiry message, and stores the stored value status information. It is transmitted back to the user terminal 10 through the transmission module 21. The stored value status information includes the remaining time, the remaining points or the remaining transmittable data amount obtained by converting the current stored value balance.

Step S403: Receive a response message from the user terminal 10. When the execution condition set by the user terminal 10 matches the stored value status information, the user terminal 10 will send a response message, and the transmission module 21 of the server terminal 20 will receive the response message. This response message corresponds to the execution operation that the user terminal 10 has set.

Step S404: Perform a corresponding operation according to the response message, where the corresponding operation includes an automatic stored value operation or a network connection interruption operation for the user. After the transmission module 21 of the server terminal 20 receives the response message, the processing module 22 performs the corresponding operation according to the response message, wherein the corresponding operation includes an automatic stored value operation or a network connection interruption operation for the user. To change the network connection status of the user stored in the server terminal 20.
