Temporarily overriding a preferred roaming list (PRL) in a multi-mode device, in favor of a wireless local area network (WLAN) access point

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #7702329.

Methods and multi-mode devices are provided for temporarily overriding a preferred roaming list (PRL) in a multi-mode device, in favor of a wireless local area network (WLAN) access point. A triggering event is detected. In response to detecting the triggering event: (i) a first connection with a first WLAN access point is established; (ii) the multi-mode device is authenticated with the first access point; (iii) access data corresponding to the first access point is stored; and (iv) the PRL is deactivated for a discrete time period, such that, during the time period, the device does not use the PRL to seek to establish a second connection with any communication system. After the time period, the PRL is automatically reactivated.
