20100074423Communicating Device with Data Lookup and Anti-Call Function - A phone anti-stalk system operates by determining when a user has carried out actions that are unacceptable. This can operate according to a rule, for example, which prevents the user from being allowed to receive calls after the user carries out some kind of action like making too many calls in a row. Rules are set which block communications from those users who carry out specified actions, like calling repeatedly without leaving messages. The user is then automatically blocked for some amount of time. The user anti-stalk criteria is stored associated with the contact's information, so that any time a communication comes in from that contact, it is automatically prevented from being indicated. The contacts of the user can also be set so that they automatically update based on information from a remote database.03-25-2010
20080304641APPARATUS FOR CITIZEN REQUESTS FOR ASSISTANCE - A method and system for initiating an incident-specific request for assistance from a citizen call station by touching a sequence of positions on a display screen. The citizen call station comprises a display having a touch-responsive mechanism for entering a call sequence of statements including initiating an alert, reporting a concern, and selecting help needed. A transmission mechanism for transmitting the call sequence to a control location is provided. A confirmation of the request, sent from the control location, may be received at the call station. The call station may also deliver information from a central location. The call station may include cameras, various sensors, two-way communications, and may be used to provide information on demand, outside of the normal security concerns.12-11-2008
20080304640TELEPHONE WITH RFID MONITORING AND CONTROL - An RFID telephone system that includes an RFID reader that reads RFID tags contained on wristbands worn by inmates. The system uses the RFID reader to monitor and control telephone calls conducted over the inmate telephone, including the creation of records associating each telephone call with a particular inmate identifier read from an RFID tag in connection with the telephone call. The RFID reader obtains an authorized inmate identifier read from an RFID tag placed in close proximity to the inmate telephone and enters the inmate identifier in a record that associated that inmate identifier with the telephone call. The RFID telephone system inserts the personal identifiers read from RFID tags into the CLID field of a calling directory number service, and may also include a local call monitoring system that stores the personal identifiers in association with audio recordings of the telephone calls.12-11-2008
20090214011System and method for providing emergency wireline telephone services to residences - A system and method for providing wireline telephone services may include providing wireline telephone services to a residence to enable a user to place telephone calls. In response to receiving an access code, the user may be enabled to place telephone calls. The user may be billed for placing the telephone calls on a per-usage basis.08-27-2009
20080226046Integrated Alerting - In a wide-area communication system, users or numbers in the system to be alerted are ranked so to improve the efficiency of the alert calls. Rankings are based on various factors, including whether two or more users are on the same active call, whether a user is on an active call, how recently a user ended a call, and whether a user recently missed a call. Within rankings, there may be multiple callers or numbers. These users may further be ranked, such as by determining which caller is expected to end a call first based on the current elapsed time of the call and the average call duration for that user or number.09-18-2008
