Title (EN) SYSTEM, METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR 'CALLER ONLY' INITIATED TWO-WAY WIRELESS COMMUNICATION WITH CALLER GENERATED BILLING
(FR) SYSTEME, PROCEDE ET APPAREIL POUR COMMUNICATION SANS FIL, BIDIRECTIONNELLE, DECLENCHEE UNIQUEMENT PAR L'APPELANT ET FACTUREE A L'APPELANT
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method for a two-way wireless communication is disclosed which can only be initiated by, and billed to, a caller (120). The system utilizes a subscriber (130) apparatus having pager and radiotelephone functions whereby a caller (120) may call the apparatus and gain direct two-way communication with the subscriber (130). The caller (120) is billed for the communication. The present invention also includes a method and apparatus for caller (120) only initiated two-way wireless communication wherein a user can initiate an outgoing connection to at least one predetermined telephone number in order to send a pre-recorded message requesting a call back from the recipient. The user is unable to initiate any real time two-way communication with the outgoing connection.
(FR) Cette invention se rapporte à un système et à un procédé de communication sans fil, bidirectionnelle, qui ne peut être initialisée que par un appelant (120) et qui est facturée à ce dernier. Ledit système utilise un appareil d'abonné (130) doté de fonctions de radiomessagerie et de radiotéléphone qui permettent à un appelant (120) d'appeler l'appareil et d'établir une communication bidirectionnelle directe avec l'abonné (130). L'appelant (120) est facturé pour la communication. Cette invention se rapporte à un procédé et à un appareil permettant une communication sans fil bidirectionnelle initialisée uniquement par l'appelant (120), selon laquelle un usager peut initialiser une connexion de sortie à destination d'au moins un numéro téléphonique préétabli de façon à envoyer un message préenregistré demandant que le destinataire rappelle. L'usager ne peut initialiser aucune communication bidirectionnelle en temps réel avec la connexion de sortie.
