Title: PHONE BOOK UPDATE BASED ON INFORMATION SERVICE
Abstract:
A method of storing a phone number within a mobile phone that was received from an information service. The user places a call to an information service (105). The requested phone number returned is detected by the mobile phone 110 and can be stored (130) within the mobile phone. In one embodiment, the requested phone number is returned audibly to the mobile phone and is detected using voice recognition algorithms to parse the audible response into a series of numbers that make up the requested phone number. The mobile can then prompt the user whether to store (130) the returned phone number permanently and where it should be stored (135). Another feature prompts the user if he would like the mobile phone to automatically dial (120) the phone number just obtained from the information service. In addition, flags can be set to automatically store (125) and dial (160) the requested phone number without having to prompt the user.
