Abstract

The article probes into the idea of smart switch of ringtone mode based on the weighted parameters of Calendar, WIFI (Access), Location, and Time. The preceding weighted parameters that are calculated in a mathematical mode can determine the ringtone mode and thus enable the smart switch for the mobile phones. Besides, users can use the customization feature which helps users quickly add, remove, or edit parameters and ringtone mode that can satisfy all users' requirements. Overall, this idea can spare user’s effort to always remember to switch the ringtone on different occasions.

Smart Switch of Ringtone Mode Based on Weighted Parameters

Although we can manually switch the ringer and alerts mode of our mobile phones, we often forget to switch the mode when we have some business or private affairs.

For example, we are haunted by the following scenarios that are prioritized:

Scenario No.

Description

Result

1: Business Before we engaged our clients in an important meeting, we forgot to switch the ringtone mode to "Silent". When the meeting was in full swing, our phone rang aloud.

The genial atmosphere was destroyed, and the clients though of us insincere and disrespectful.

The meeting ended up as a failure, which incurred loss of business opportunity.

2: Business Before we did a crucial presentation to our manager/executives, we forgot to switch the ringtone mode to "Silent". During our presentation, our phone rang aloud.

We were interrupted by the sudden ring, and thus became annoyed and less confident.

Our manager/executives considered us unprofessional and ill-prepared, which could deny us the promotion opportunity.

3: Private Before we saw a moving or exhilarating film, we forgot to switch the ringtone mode to "Silent". When the film plot

was reaching its climax, our phone rang aloud.

All of the audience present were

disturbed by the noise and forced out of the plot itself.

We felt embarrassed by our

misconduct, and might spoil the entire atmosphere for film-seeing.

4: Private We tend to focus on our work and switch our ringtone mode to "Silent".

However, we forgot to switch the mode back to "Ring" before we left office. While we were walking, our boyfriend/girlfriend called us, but we didn't hear the ring.

we were easily regarded as those who didn't care others at all.

If this situation frequented us, the relationship between two people might inevitably turn

worse.

5: Private Before we wentto bed, we forgot to switch the ringtone mode to "Silent". When we fell asleep, we were awakened by someone's call.

Our sweet dream was disappointingly smashed by some call, which made us upset and hard to fall asleep again. This could lower our sleeping quality.

We could feel even more

agitated if the call was mistakenly dialed by someone or the call was a fraud one.

Our invention adopts the approach of calculating 4 weighted parameters in a mathematical mode to determine the ringtone mode and thus enable the smart switch for the mobile phones,

which spares user's effort to always remember to switch the ringtone on different occasions.

We come up with the method to intelligently switch our phone's ringtone mode based on weighted param...
