INFORMATION AUTOMATIC STORAGE SERVICE METHOD FOR COMMUNICATION EQUIPMENT

Technical Field

[1] The present invention relates to an automatic information storage service method for communication equipments, more particularly, in which caller/receiver information (e.g., various content information such as text type information that can be inputted, group name information, voice recognition information, fingerprint information, bio- information, picture information, face recognition information, telephone number information, bell sound information, home banking security information, phone banking security information and on-line financial networking information) of a caller/receiver who uses a communication equipment can be automatically stored, simultaneously with a communication connection (including a telephony communication, a facsimile communication, a text message communication and a visual communication), or according to conditions set by a user. Background Art

[2] FIG. 1 is a process flowchart illustrating a conventional communication establishment process.

[3] According to the conventional communication establishment process as shown in

FIG. 1, when a caller attempts a telecommunication connection with a receiver in SlO, it is judged whether or not the telephone number of the caller (receiver) is stored in a communication equipment of the receiver (caller) in S20. If the telephone number of the caller (receiver) is stored in the communication equipment of the receiver (caller) (corresponding to "Y" in S20), caller (receiver) information stored in the telephone number is displayed in S50 and then a telecommunication connecting procedure is started in S40. If the telephone number of the caller (receiver) is not stored in the communication equipment of the receiver (caller) (corresponding to "N" in S20), only the telephone number of the caller (receiver) is displayed in S30 and then the telecommunication connecting procedure is started in S40.

[4] According to the conventional communication establishment process as mentioned above, when the caller establishes a telecommunication connection with the receiver, the communication equipment of the receiver (caller) displays only the telephone number of the caller. Hence, the receiver suffers inconvenience that he/she must personally input information about the telephone number of the caller. Likewise, if information of the receiver is not stored, only the telephone number of the receiver is displayed to the caller. [5] The most serious problem that users of conventional communication equipments meet is how to store caller/receiver information. The users must push a plurality of buttons of a communication equipment to input the caller/receiver information according to the setting of a communication company or the communication equipment in order to store the caller/receiver information. In addition, the information inputted is mostly simple information that is generally composed of a text data.

[6] It is necessary to push a number of buttons composing a text to input the information, and thus storing single information takes about one minute. However, it should be noted that this time period is required merely for storing text type name information of a user and more user information other than the name information is required in a multimedia society that requires various contents. It is burdensome to input various types of information including bio-information of a user, security information used in financial networking such as home banking and phone banking, face recognition information used in a visual communication and a fingerprint recognition information for user recognition into existing communication equipments and, in most cases, such information is not inputted into the existing communication equipments.

[7] In a society that needs speedy treatments such as these days, since a conventional method of storing information in the existing communication equipment having a limited storage capacity takes too much time and concentration, several approaches have been proposed to improve this problem. However, irrespective of improvements in these approaches, information is not stored by a single procedure but always by repeated steps of text input procedures.

[8] As another problem, even if a user can personally input and store various types of information, only limited types of information can be stored. There are many difficulties that the user meets when he/she attempts to input his/her bio-information, face recognition information or fingerprint information to the existing communication equipment. Recently, communication equipments are being used more to carry out banking services such as home banking, phone banking and mobile banking. Since text type information is not enough for this purpose, demands for inputting various types of user information are increasing. Disclosure of Invention Technical Problem

[75] The present invention will now be described more fully with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which preferred embodiments of the invention are shown.

[76] Embodiments

[77] FIG. 2 is a process flowchart illustrating an automatic information storage service method for communication equipments according to a preferred embodiment of the present invention, carried out by a receiver side.

[78] First, a caller (transmitter) and a receiver attempt a mutual telecommunication connection in S 110.

[79] In S 120, a receiving communication equipment judges whether or not caller information is stored therein. The caller information includes various content information such as text type information that can be inputted, voice recognition information of the caller and/or the receiver, fingerprint, bio-information, picture, face recognition information, telephone number information and bell sound.

[80] If it is judged that the caller information is stored in the receiving communication equipment (i.e., "Y" in S 120), the receiving communication equipment displays the stored caller information in S 130 and starts a telecommunication connection in S 140.

[81] On the other hand, if it is judged that the caller information is not stored in the receiving communication equipment (i.e., "N" in S 120), it is judged whether or not the caller information identifies a normal user who is registered in the system in S 150.

[82] If the caller information identifies a normal user registered in the system (i.e., "Y" in S 150), the receiving communication equipment stores the received caller information and displays the stored caller information in S 160 and starts a telecommunication connection in S 140.

[83] On the other hand, if the caller information does not identify a normal user registered in the system (i.e., "N" in S 150), the receiving communication equipment displays telephone number of the caller in S 170 and starts a telecommunication connection in S 140.

[84] FIG. 3 is a process flowchart illustrating an automatic information storage service method for communication equipments according to a preferred embodiment of the present invention, carried out by a caller side.

[85] In S210, a caller (transmitter) and a receiver attempt a mutual telecommunication connection.

[86] In S220, a calling communication equipment judges whether or not receiver information is stored therein. The receiver information includes various content information such as text type information that can be inputted, voice recognition information of the caller and/or the receiver, fingerprint, bio-information, picture, face recognition information, telephone number information and bell sound.

[87] If it is judged that the receiver information is stored in the calling communication equipment (i.e., "Y" in S220), the calling communication equipment displays the stored receiver information in S230 and starts a telecommunication connection in S240.

[88] On the other hand, if it is judged that the receiver information is not stored in the calling communication equipment (i.e., "N" in S220), it is judged whether or not the receiver information identifies a normal user who is registered in the system in S250.

[89] If the receiver information identifies a normal user registered in the system (i.e.,

"Y" in S250), the calling communication equipment stores the receiver information and displays the stored receiver information in S260 and starts a telecommunication connection in S240.

[90] On the other hand, if the receiver information does not identify a normal user registered in the system (i.e., "N" in S250), the calling communication equipment displays received telephone number of the receiver in S270 and starts a telecommunication connection in S240.

[91] In FIGS. 2 and 3, the information of the caller/receiver using the communication equipment includes various content information such as text type information that can be inputted, voice recognition information of the caller and/or the receiver, fingerprint, bio-information, picture, face recognition information, telephone number information, bell sound, home banking security information, phone banking security information and on-line financial networking information. The telecommunication connection includes a telephony connection, a facsimile connection, a text message connection and a visual communication. In the text message communication, as soon as a text message is received, a communication equipment stores the text message and reads caller information from the stored text message. Then, the communication equipment displays the caller information together with the text message. In the facsimile communication, caller and receiver information is stored in facsimile machines at both sides.

[92] The automatic information storage service method for communication equipment according to the present invention includes following functions:

[93] 1. Caller/receiver information can be transmitted, simultaneously with a communication connection, according to a communication scheme that is mutually agreed by a communication equipment of a caller/receiver and a communication service provider, so that the caller/receiver information can be automatically stored in the communication equipment of the caller/receiver.

[94] 2. When a caller and a receiver attempt a communication connection using communication equipments, caller/receiver information can be automatically stored and provided to the caller and/or the receiver if such information is not stored in the communication equipment(s) of the caller and/or the receiver.

[95] 3. When a caller attempts a communication connection with a receiver, caller information can be stored prior to the communication connection, so that the information of the caller can be stored in a communication equipment of the receiver, simultaneously with the communication connection, and displayed on the communication equipment of the receiver.

[96] 4. Caller/receiver information can also be stored in communication equipments using a specific communication protocol, which is specified by a communication equipment manufacturer, and a communication service provider can store the caller/ receiver information. These functions can be combined through the cooperation of a communication equipment manufacturer and a communication service provider.

[97] 5. Caller/receiver information can be displayed on a communication equipment of a caller/receiver irrespective of the selection of the caller/receiver, or a function, which causes the caller/receiver information so as not to be stored unconditionally, can be selected according to user setting.

[98] 6. A user can selectively designate a time point of storing caller/receiver information from any one of a starting point, an intermediate point and a termination point of a communication connection.

[99] 7. Caller information can be automatically stored in a receiver side using caller/ receiver information, which can be automatically stored in a communication equipment of a caller/receiver, so that effects of advertisement and/or public relations can be realized using the stored caller information.

[100] 8. A user of a communication equipment can set whether or not to store caller/ receiver information, and cancel the stored information if the user does not want the stored information.

[101] 9. Caller/receiver information can be automatically and interactively stored in both of a caller and a receiver when they attempt a communication connection using communication equipments so that a user can conveniently use a communication equipment, or the caller/receiver information can be stored simultaneously with a time point when the communication connection is established so that the user can add some words (e.g., user information, company name and product names for sales activities) that he/she wants, even if the caller/receiver information is not stored in the communication equipment of the caller/receiver, in order to realize effects of advertisement and public relations.

[102] 10. A user can separately search for caller/receiver information, stored in a communication equipment of a caller/receiver, according to entire periods and names (i.e., names of some or entire parts).

[103] 11. In an advertisement function for communication equipment users or using a public relations copy is performed, it is possible to provide an immaterial service so that a user pays a certain amount of money to a mobile phone manufacturer or a mobile communication provider for a predetermined period in order to send his/her caller information to a receiver. As an example of the immaterial service, the caller information such as "HONG GHIL-DONG, PRESIDENT OF MOVER SPECIALIZED IN APARTMENT" can be basically provided to a receiver, so that additional fees can be charged for words, which are commonly used.

[104] In this kind of additional service, consumers can be charged for specific words dis- criminatively according to periods. That is, when the caller running a moving center wants caller information "BEST MOVING CENTER IN MYEONG-DONG," different fees can be charged for words: 500 won (Korea monetary unit) for "MYEONG- DONG" (maximum is 1000 won per month) and 500 won for "MOVING." In addition, the fees can also be charged differently according to periods, such as one week, one year and years, which are designated by users.

[105] 12. In a communication equipment such as a visual communication equipment, which consecutively provides screen images to a user while a communication is carried out, it is possible to display various types of information set by a caller/receiver, such as contents for public relations and product guide of a company, a user homepage, contents similar to a homepage and a company sketch map associated with telephone number, on a counterpart communication equipment, according to the information registered and stored by the caller/receiver, even if a call connection is being performed.

[106] 13. Designated contents of the various types of information, set by a caller/ receiver, can be displayed on the counterpart communication equipment, simultaneously with the startup of the communication connection until the communication connection is finished or a user pushes a stop button (or according to stop setting).

[107] 14. For the aforementioned services, additional service fees can be charged according to periods and contents.

[108] 15. It is possible to display only specific information designated by a caller but disregard receiver information, and on the other hand, a receiver can disregard caller information, in response to a request from a communication equipment user. This can be determined according to the service priority for the caller or the receiver. Hence, according to the setting of a communication equipment user, it is possible to set caller/ receiver information so as not to be stored. This can be used to prevent thoughtless use of the storage function.

[109] FIGS. 2 and 3 illustrate the process in view of the receiver and of the caller, which is not separated but carried out at once and at the same time. Accordingly, the caller automatically manages the receiver information and the receiver automatically manages the caller information as the main concept of the present invention.

[110] In FIGS. 2 and 3, the importance differences of the present invention are as follows.

[I l l] First, the caller/receiver information is automatically stored. Second, the caller/ receiver information is stored simultaneously with a time point that a communication connection is established. Accordingly, if the caller/receiver information is not previously stored in a respective communication equipment, it is possible to immediately display the stored information. In this way, both of the caller and the receiver can achieve effects of advertisement or public relations by a considerable extent.

[112] Describing in greater detail, for example, it will be assumed that A calls B but the communication equipment of B does not have information of A. As soon as a communication connection is established between A and B, information of A is automatically stored in the communication equipment of B. Then, the communication equipment of B displays the stored information of A in such a fashion that public relations of A can be enabled.

[113] In a case where A works in a company that treats car insurance as the main product, a message such as "A, BEST CAR INSURANCE MANAGER IN KOREA" can be displayed on the communication equipment of B so that A can provide his/her information to B while advertising his/her company and its product. In this case, services can be designated differently according to specific advertising words and company names to charge users additional fees.

[114] As set forth above, Caller/receiver information can be automatically and interactively stored in both of a caller and a receiver when they attempt a communication connection using communication equipments so that a user can conveniently use a communication equipment, or the caller/receiver information can be stored simultaneously with a time point when the communication connection is established so that the user can add some words that he/she wants, even if the caller/receiver information is not stored in the communication equipment of the caller/receiver, in order to realize effects of advertisement and public relations.

[115] While the present invention has been described with reference to the particular illustrative embodiments and the accompanying drawings, it is not to be limited thereto but will be defined by the appended claims. It is to be appreciated that those skilled in the art can substitute, change or modify the embodiments into various forms without departing from the scope and spirit of the present invention.
