Claims

1. A removable storage module (214) operable to be coupled to a wireless device (102), comprising:

a database structure (800E) populated with a plurality of network identifiers wherein each network identifier is associated with a corresponding frequency data item operable to be downloaded to said wireless device (102); and

a logic application operable for downloading to said wireless device (102) a particular frequency data item responsive to receiving a particular network identifier from said wireless device (102), said particular frequency data item for modulating said wireless device's scanning behaviour to accelerate network selection.


  2. The removable storage module (214) as recited in claim 1, wherein said particular frequency data item comprises one of a frequency band, a specific frequency channel, and a range of frequencies that are allowed for scanning by said wireless device (102).
  3. The removable storage module (214) as recited in claim 1, wherein said particular frequency data item comprises one of a frequency band, a specific frequency channel, and a range of frequencies that are prohibited for scanning by said wireless device (102).
  4. The removable storage module (214) as recited in claim 1, claim 2 or claim 3, further comprising at least one additional database structure populated with one or more PLMN lists operable to be downloaded to said wireless device (102).
  5. The removable storage module (102) as recited in claim 1, claim 2, claim 3 or claim 4, further comprising at least one additional database structure populated with one or more WLAN lists operable to be downloaded to said wireless device (102).
  6. A method to facilitate transfer of information from a removable storage module (214) operable to be coupled to a wireless device (102), comprising:

receiving by the removable storage module a network identifier from said wireless device; and

responsive to receiving said network identifier, downloading by the removable storage module to said wireless device (102) a particular frequency data item for modulating said wireless device's scanning behaviour with respect to accelerating network selection, said particular frequency data item being from a database structure provided by the removable storage module and populated with a plurality of network identifiers wherein each network identifier is associated with a corresponding frequency data item.


  7. The method of claim 6 wherein said particular frequency data item comprises one of a frequency band, a specific frequency channel, or a range of frequencies that are allowed for scanning by said wireless device (102).
  8. The method of claim 6 wherein said particular frequency data item comprises one of a frequency band, a specific frequency channel, or a range of frequencies that are prohibited for scanning by said wireless device (102).
  9. The method of claim 6 wherein said particular frequency data item comprises one of a frequency band, a specific frequency channel, or a range of frequencies that are operable with at least one wide area cellular network.
  10. The method of claim 6 wherein said particular frequency data item comprises one of a frequency band, a specific frequency channel, or a range of frequencies that are operable with at least one wireless local area network.
