          Application 07/775,114                                                      


          This is a decision on the appeal under 35 U.S.C.  134                      
          from the examiner's rejection of claims 1, 4-12 and 14, which               
          constitute all the claims remaining in the application.                     
          The claimed invention pertains to a cellular telephone                      
          system in which the handset is equipped with an integrated                  
          circuit card reader for storing information regarding phone call            
          transactions on an integrated circuit card as the phone calls are           
          made.                                                                       
          Representative claim 1 is reproduced as follows:                            
               1.  An apparatus for controlling and recording cellular                
          phone call transactions for use in a cellular telephone system,             
          the system containing a remote unit having a radio transceiver, a           
          handset and a logic bus, the apparatus comprising:                          
               (a) remote card reader interface means for writing and                 
          reading information to and from an integrated circuit card placed           
          in the remote card reader;                                                  
               (b) logic bus interface means for connecting a processing              
          means to the logic bus of the transceiver;                                  
               (c) processing means connected to the logic bus interface              
          means and remote card reader interface means for processing                 
          information observed on the logic bus or read from the card, said           
          information including phone call transaction information; and               
               (d) the processing means further including means for                   
          controlling the remote unit in response to information read from            
          the card and for writing phone call transaction information to an           
          integrated circuit card placed in the remote card reader, the               
          phone call transaction information including at least the phone             
          number and duration for each call processed by on the remote                
          unit.                                                                       
          The examiner relies on the following references:
