Abstract (en)

[origin: WO02080517A2] The invention relates to a method for billing chargeable services using a prepaid account managed in a communication network for a communication terminal that is registered in said network. To bill the chargeable services, at least one billing message is transmitted by a payment request device to an account management device of the prepaid account via a signalling system of the communication network that controls the establishment of a communication link. The payment request device (ZAE) provides the billing message (VN) with an address for the communication terminal (KEG) and said message is routed to a device exchange (CSCF1) that is assigned to the communication terminal (KEG). The exchange determines an identification address for the account management device (KFE) based on the address of the communication terminal (KEG) and the billing message (VN) is routed to the account management device (KFE).
