Automatic emergency call notification to pre-designated personal emergency contacts
Automatic notification is provided to pre-designated emergency contacts for a given wireless subscriber upon the occurrence of an emergency call from the subscriber. Triggering for the automatic notification may take place at an appropriate time in the emergency call, e.g., at a time the emergency call is received, at a time during the emergency call after a current location of the emergency caller is obtained by the emergency network, once the emergency call terminates, after a set amount of time after the emergency call is received, terminates, etc. The automatic notification is preferably made using voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), but may instead be pre-designated by the subscriber to be in an alternative mode, e.g., by SMS, switched telephone, etc. An option is included for the emergency caller to cancel the automatic notification. The location of the emergency caller may be configurably provided to a notified emergency contact.

A method and system for controlling the provisioning of a device with information for accessing services of a wireless service provider via a wireless network is provided. The provisioning system initially stores automatic provisioning information on the device that includes the identification of wireless service providers that have the capability to automatically provision the device. When a user of the device wants to subscribe to a service of a service provider, the provisioning system requests an automatic provisioning service of the service provider to provide information describing available services and information needed to subscribe to those services. When the user selects a service and provides the needed information, the provisioning system retrieves provisioning information for the selected service from the service provider. The provisioning system stores the provisioning information on the device so that the device can then be used to access the selected service of the service provider.

Routing paging messages for multiple subscription identities of a single communication device via a single paging channel
A method is provided for conserving power on a wireless communication device having multi-subscription capabilities. Instead of scanning different paging channels for each of a plurality of subscriptions, power may be conserved by using a single paging channel from a serving access network for all paging messages from the plurality of subscriptions. The wireless communication device may provide a serving access network information for the plurality of subscriptions, where each of the plurality of subscriptions is associated with a different paging channel. The serving access network may select or obtain a single paging channel for all paging messages from different core networks associated with the plurality of subscriptions. The wireless communication device may be informed of the selected paging channel by the access network so it monitors for paging messages for all subscriptions on that selected paging channel only.
