    Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION


    1. Field of the Invention



    [0001] The present invention relates to an apparatus and a method for managing a message in a mobile terminal. More particularly, the present invention relates to an apparatus and a method for displaying a plurality of messages using a filter function.

    2. Description of the Related Art



    [0002] As a mobile terminal becoming increasingly popular, service providers in race to develop more convenient and capable of providing special functions. More particularly, as use of a message service such as a Short Message Service (SMS) and a multi-media message service are growing in a mobile terminal, functions that allow a user to view and manage the message service more conveniently are being studied.

    [0003] For example, most of the conventional mobile terminals manage all transmitted/received messages using typical message classification boxes, such as a reception message box, a calling message box, a spam message box, a storage message box, and a permanent message box. That is, the mobile terminal separates and stores messages in the reception message box and the calling message box depending on whether each message is a received message or a calling message, and stores a relevant message in the spam message box, the storage message box, or the permanent message box.

    [0004] As described above, since the conventional mobile terminal manages a message using a fixed message box, it is difficult for a user to view and manage a message according to the user's preference. The mobile terminal provides a limited function of changing an arrangement order of messages included in the message box, but simply changing the arrangement order of the messages has a limitation in meeting a user's various preferences..

    [0005] In effort to improve the message management, a function called a conversation mode, which displays messages transmitted/received to/from a specific counterpart in a time order, is introduced recently. However, the conversation mode is a function of displaying only messages transmitted/received to/from only one selected counterpart, thus still fall short in meeting a user's various tastes and preferences.

    [0006] Therefore, an improved message management function that can serve users' various needs in the mobile terminal is needed.

    [0007] US-2004/0110491-A1 describes a portable terminal suitable for displaying related electronic mail and a method of displaying electronic mail. The portable terminal includes a relating unit for extracting one or more related electronic mails from a mail region on basis of a relating condition for a specified electronic mail by an operation of a user.

    [0008] US-2003/0061209-A1 describes a computer interface tool for navigation of data stored in directed graphs. A search query input section receives a database query from a user, and a display section displays a list of items that satisfy the query such that a user is allowed to select an item from the list. The display section displays metadata about the selected item and allows deselection/selection of one or more metadatum. A display section displays a list of related items in the database that are related to the selected item in accordance with the selected/deselected metadata.

    [0009] EP-1,617,637-A1 describes a system and method for managing informational objects on mobile devices. A user-selectable option is displayed to a user which is associated with an action to be performed on informational objects sharing at least one specified characteristic. After the user has selected the option, additional objects are identified having the at least one specified characteristic.

    [0010] US 2002/0087584 A1 discloses a method and a system for management of messages, wherein upon receipt of a message, or at another time, a machine may automatically extract a parameter value from the message and create a new folder for storing messages that match that parameter value.

    SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

    [0016] Throughout the drawings, like reference numerals will be understood to refer to like parts, components and structures.

    DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION



    [0017] The following description with reference to the accompanying drawings is provided to assist in a comprehensive understanding of exemplary embodiments of the invention as defined by the claims. It includes various specific details to assist in that understanding but these are to be regarded as merely exemplary. Accordingly, those of ordinary skill in the art will recognize that various changes and modifications of the embodiments described herein can be made without departing from the scope of the invention. Also, descriptions of well-known functions and constructions are omitted for clarity and conciseness.

    [0018] It is to be understood that the singular forms "a," "an," and "the" include plural referents unless the context clearly dictates otherwise. Thus, for example, reference to "a component surface" includes reference to one or more of such surfaces.

    [0019] By the term "substantially" it is meant that the recited characteristic, parameter, or value need not be achieved exactly, but that deviations or variations, including for example, tolerances, measurement error, measurement accuracy limitations and other factors known to those skilled in the art, may occur in amounts that do not preclude the effect the characteristic was intended to provide.

    [0020] Exemplary embodiments of the present invention provide an apparatus and a method for filtering and displaying only messages that meet a user setting condition, and generating a message box including only filtered messages in a mobile terminal.

    [0021] FIG. 1 is a block diagram illustrating a mobile terminal according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

    [0022] Referring to FIG. 1, the mobile terminal includes a communication module 100, a controller 110, a storage unit 120, a display unit 130, and an input unit 140. More particularly, according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the controller 110 includes a message box manger 112. The message box manager 112 includes a filter unit 114.

    [0023] In operation, the communication module 100 down-converts a Radio Frequency (RF) signal received via an antenna to a baseband signal, provides the baseband signal to the controller 110, and also up-converts a baseband signal provided by the controller 110 into an RF signal, and transmits the RF signal via the antenna.

    [0024] The controller 110 controls and processes an overall operation (for example, voice communication and data communication) of the mobile terminal. According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the controller 110 controls and processes function for filtering and displaying all messages according to a user setting condition and for generating a message box including filtered messages via the message box manager 112.

    [0025] The message box manager 112 manages all messages by generating a reception message box, a calling message box, and an other message boxes. The message box manager 112 moves all transmitted/received messages to the all message box, and manages respective messages by moving each message to the reception message box or the calling message box depending on transmission/reception information of each message.

    [0026] More particularly, according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the message box manager 112 analyzes meta data of each message to generate filtering items for filtering all messages. Here, the meta data includes at least one of a transmission phone number, a reception phone number, a transmission time, a reception time of each message, whether a user reads a message, whether a protection is set, and an importance degree. For example, when phone numbers of users A, B, and C are determined from transmission/reception phone numbers of respective messages as a result of the analysis of the meta data, the message box manager 112 may generate the phone numbers of the users A, B, and C as filtering items for sorting. When date information of January 1, January 3, and January 5 are determined from transmission/reception time of the respective messages, the message box manager 112 may generate the dates, that is, January 1, January 3, and January 5 as filtering items for sorting.

    [0027] When a message filtering event occurs, the message box manager 112 displays the generated filtering items and enables a user to select at least one filtering item. When the at least one filtering item is selected via the input unit 140 by the user, the message box manager 112 generates a message list representing messages corresponding to the selected filtering item, and controls and processes a function for displaying the generated message list on the display unit 130. That is, the filter unit 114 filters only messages corresponding to the filtering item selected by the user from all transmitted/received messages, then generates the message list representing only the filtered messages. Here, when a specific filtering item is selected by the user, the filter unit 114 may quickly generate a message list representing messages corresponding to the selected filtering item by grouping or indexing in advance all messages according to the filtering item.

    [0028] In addition, the message box manager 112 controls and processes a function for generating a separate message box including only the filtered messages according to a user's setting, and for storing and managing the generated message box.

    [0029] The storage unit 120 stores various programs and data for an overall operation of the mobile terminal. More particularly, the storage unit 120 may store all transmitted/received messages, and classify and save all the transmitted/received messages for each message box under control of the message box manager 112.

    [0030] The display unit 130 displays the status information generated during an operation of the mobile terminal, numbers and letters, and various images, and displays a message list representing messages included in each message box, or displays a message list representing filtered messages under control of the message box manager 112.

    [0031] The input unit 140 includes numerical keys, letter keys, and a plurality of function keys, and provides data corresponding to a key pressed by a user to the controller 110.

    [0032] FIG. 2 is a flowchart illustrating a procedure for filtering messages in a mobile terminal according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

    [0033] Referring to FIG. 2, the terminal detects whether a specific message box is selected from basically provided message boxes and an event for viewing messages included in the selected message box occurs in step 201. When the specific message box is selected and an event for viewing relevant messages occurs, the terminal displays the messages included in the selected message box in step 203. For example, as illustrated in FIG. 3, when the all message box is selected from the message box window , the terminal displays all messages transmitted/received at the terminal.

    [0034] Thereafter, the terminal determines whether a message filtering event occurs in step 205. When the message filtering event occurs, the terminal displays items that can perform filtering in step 207. Here, the items that can perform filtering are generated using meta data of respective messages transmitted/received at the terminal, that is, at least one of a transmission phone number, a reception phone number, a transmission time, a reception time of each message, whether a user reads a message, whether protection is set, and an importance degree. Here, the items that can perform filtering may be roughly classified into a transmitter/receiver (or transmission/reception phone number), a message box, a time, whether a user reads a message, whether protection is set, and an importance degree based on the meta data.

    [0035] In addition, the items may be classified in more detail according to detailed contents of meta data of messages stored in the terminal. That is, the transmitter/receiver of the items that can perform filtering may be classified for each user. The message box may be classified into a reception message box, a calling message box, a transmission-scheduled message box, and a temporary storage message box. Further, the time may be classified for each date or each month. An item of whether the user reads a message may be classified into read and unread. For example, as illustrated in FIG. 3, in the case where transmission/reception phone number information of all stored messages is phone numbers of users 'Park' and 'Marry', 'Park' and 'Marry' may be set as detailed items of the transmitter/receiver.

    [0036] The terminal determines an item selected by a user among the items that can perform filtering in step 209, then filters messages corresponding to the selected item from all messages stored in the terminal in step 211 and displays a message list representing filtered messages in step 213. That is, the terminal searches for only messages having meta data corresponding to the selected item, and displays a message list representing only the searched messages. For example, as illustrated in FIG. 3, when an item 'Park' corresponding to a transmitter/receiver is selected from the items that can perform filtering, the terminal may search for and display all messages transmitted/received to/from the user 'Park'. Alternatively, when an item 'reception message box' corresponding to a message box is selected from the items that can perform filtering, the terminal may search for and display message received by the terminal. Here, the terminal may allow the user to select a plurality of items that can perform filtering, and filter and display messages corresponding to the selected plurality of items. For example, as illustrated in FIG. 4, the terminal may allow the user to select an item 'Park' and an item 'reception message box', and display only received messages of messages transmitted/received to/from the user 'Park'. In addition, the terminal may allow the user to select items 'Park', 'Marry', and 'transmitted message box', and display messages transmitted to the users 'Park' and 'Marry' in the designate receiver filter mode in FIG. 4.

    [0037] Referring back to FIG. 2, the terminal determines whether an event for storing filtering results occurs in step 215. When the event for storing filtering results occurs, the terminal generates a new message box including the filtered messages and stores the new message box in step 217, and ends the algorithm according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention. At the same time, if the event for storing filtering results does not occur, the terminal ends the algorithm according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

    [0038] The terminal may display a window requiring a user to input a name of the new message box, receive the name of the new message box from the user, and save the messages. At this point, instead of receiving the name of the new message box from the user, the terminal may generate the name of the new message box based on the selected filtering items, or generate the name of the new message box according to a predetermined name generating method. For example, as illustrated in FIG. 4, when a menu for storing "filtering results" is selected on a screen that displays a message list representing filtered messages, the terminal may display a window requiring the user to custom name a message box to be generated, and generate a new message box that matches the input name. Note that the above generated message box may be accessed using the same method as described above and may be deleted by the user or user's setting.

    [0039] An exemplary embodiment of the present invention may filter, display, and manage messages according to a user's preference by filtering and displaying only messages that meet a user setting condition, and generating a message box including only the filtered messages in a mobile terminal.

    [0040] The above-described methods according to the present invention can be realized in hardware or as software or computer code that can be stored in a recording medium such as a CD ROM, an RAM, a floppy disk, a hard disk, or a magneto-optical disk or downloaded over a network, so that the methods described herein can be executed by such software using a general purpose computer, or a special processor or in programmable or dedicated hardware, such as an ASIC or FPGA. As would be understood in the art, the computer, the processor or the programmable hardware include memory components, e.g., RAM, ROM, Flash, etc. that may store or receive software or computer code that when accessed and executed by the computer, processor or hardware implement the processing methods described herein.

    [0041] Although the invention has been shown and described with reference to certain exemplary embodiments thereof, it will be understood by those skilled in the art that various changes in form and details may be made therein without departing from the scope of the invention as defined by the appended claims. Therefore, the scope of the present invention should not be limited to the above-described embodiments but should be determined by not only the appended claims but also the equivalents thereof.
