Title: (EN) Method and apparatus for automatically determining an isp local access number based on device location
Abstract:
(EN) A local access number is automatically determined for facilitating communication between a portable communication device and one or more local service providers. A new location of the portable communication device is detected, and a determination is made whether a local access number is stored in the portable communication device for the new location. If the local access number is not stored, the new location of the portable communication device is reported to a location server in the local service provider serving the new location. The location server provides an appropriate local access number for the new location, and this local access number is stored in the portable communication device.
