English Abstract


Described are various embodiments of an all-data mobile subscriber system and
method,
and mobile smartphone-over-data device and computer-implemented environment
therefor. In some embodiments, a subscriber to a mobile network may gain
access to both
telephony-over-data (e.g. voice and/or SMS) and other traditionally data-based
services
over a combined all-data mobile subscription package via a virtualized
smartphone-over-data
application executed on their mobile device and interfacing through a same
data
network access point to access all network data services and communications.


Note: Claims are shown in the official language in which they were submitted.

CLAIMS

What is claimed is:
1. A mobile subscriber system comprising:
a mobile data network access point;
a server accessible via said data network access point and operable to execute
a
telephony-over-IP application;
a thin client application executable on each subscriber's mobile communication

device to interface with said telephony-over-data application via said mobile
data
network access point; and
a subscriber account database tracking data consumption by each said
subscriber
interfacing with said telephony-over-IP application via respective executions
of said thin
client application, against a respective all-data mobile subscription account
associated
with each said subscriber.
2. The mobile subscriber system of claim 1 , wherein said telephony-over-
data
application includes a voice-over-data function and a SMS-over-data function,
wherein
said subscriber account database independently tracks data consumption
associated with
each of said voice-over-data function and said SMS-over-data function.
3. The mobile subscriber system of claim 1 or claim 2, wherein said
subscriber
account database further independently tracks data consumption associated with
a Web-
based function implemented via said mobile data network access point.
4. The mobile subscriber system of claim 3, wherein said thin client
application is
further executable to access a current data consumption metric relative to an
overall data
consumption allocation.

37

5. The mobile subscriber system of claim 4, wherein said current data
consumption
metric is subdivided into respective data consumption metrics for voice-over-
data usage,
SMS-over-data usage and Web-based usage.
6. The mobile subscriber system of any one of claims 1 to 5, wherein said
thin client
application is further executable by a first subscriber associated with a
first all-data
mobile subscription account to transfer a data consumption allocation quantum
to a
second subscriber associated with a second mobile subscription account.
