A METHOD FOR PROVIDING DOWNLOADABLE SUBSCRIPTION-BASED SOFTWARE
|Abstract||A system and method for the provision of downloadable subscription-based software applications to one or more wireless devices where the applications are downloadable from one or more application download servers across a wireless network. An accounting module receives subscription-based application download data from the one or more application download servers for each subscription-based application downloaded by a wireless device, and subscription-based application deletion data from each wireless device that has deleted a subscription-based application. The accounting module accounts for the use of the subscribed software applications based upon the subscription-based software application download data and subscription- based appli,cation deletion data.|
SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR PROVIDING SUBSCRIBED APPLICATIONS ON WIRELESS DEVICES OVER A

networks or server-side network.
In one embodiment, upon deletror, of a subscription-based software application,
be transmitted, subscritpion-based applicationdeletion data at an application download
Hardware and wireless devices that can be used within the inventive system
FIG 2, is a block diagram of the hardware companents of the wireles network
Access terminals personal computers, access terminals, telephones without a display or

Larger charge the user. Thus, the deletion of the subscription-based application must be
single bit wherein 0 indicates that no deletion signal had been received, and I indicates
wireless device deletes the subscritpion based application completely from the wireless
cellular teleconnection to a server. The receiving application download server 16 then
forwards the deletion data to the accounting module for processing as shown in FIG.6.
