Abstract

Currently, when the user finishes reading a message and wants to either delete or save that message, he/she would need to perform the fol- lowing key sequences: pressing the FUNCTION key to display the function menu which consists of a series of icons and prompts, pressing left or right key to select either "delete" or "save" option, and pressing FLJNCTION key to confirm. By displaying the inquiry prompts automatically at the end of a message, the user interface will be friendlier.

INQUIRY PROMPTS ARE DISPLAYED AFTER MESSAGE IS READ

by Theresa Pham

1. INTRODUCTIDN

  Currently, when the user finishes reading a message and wants to either delete or save that message, he/she would need to perform the fol- lowing key sequences: pressing the FUNCTION key to display the function menu which consists of a series of icons and prompts, pressing left or right key to select either "delete" or "save" option, and pressing FLJNCTION key to confirm. By displaying the inquiry prompts automatically at the end of a message, the user interface will be friendlier.

2. PROPOSED IMPLEMENTATION

  The user interface described below allows a user to either delete or save a read message without having to go through the series of key presses

described above in the function menu. When the user is at the end of a message, an inquiry prompt shall be displayed. The user can select either to confirm or abort the inquiry prompt by pressing the FUNCTION key or the READ key. The pager does not activate the display for the series of icons and prompts options as described above and as a result, it would also save the battery drain.

Below is an example of the pager display formatting:
