Abstract

Telephone number retrieval mechanisms abound in modem telecommunications equipment due to the avail- abiity of speed dial and redial memory. The advent of these technologies as well as the inclusion of alphanu- meric displays in many phones offer a whole host of new applications to the equipment manufacturer. Auto- matic iWphone Number Retrieval illustrates a technique through which speed dial and redial memory can be used to retrieve telephone numbers from memory with- out the user having to remember a speed dial index or maneuver through a speed dial retrieval mechanism.
