Emerging rich wireless networking modalities facilitate the development of new intelligent, innovative services on smart phones. The authors propose a ubiquitous phone (UbiPhone) system that demonstrates innovative context-aware human-centric phone services, which could become available on smart phones. UbiPhone's features include UbiCall, AnyCall, and an emergency contact service. The authors have implemented a UbiPhone prototype on a smart phone with real context sources to demonstrate the system's feasibility.
