6 METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR AUTOMATIC DIALING ACCESS POINTS CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION [0001] This application is a continuation of PCT/CN2012/ ,?led on Jul. 9, 2012, which claims priority to Chinese Patent Application No ,?led on Jul. 13, 2011, all of which is hereby incorporated by reference in its entirety. TECHNICAL FIELD [0002] Embodiments of the present invention relate to the technical?eld of communications, and in particular, to a method and an apparatus for automatic dialing access point. BACKGROUND [0003] An access point, that is, an APN (Access Point Name), is a parameter which must be con?gured when a terminal device accesses a network, and determines an access manner in which the terminal device accesses the network. At present, a terminal may perform a data service in two man ners, namely, a static APN and a dynamic APN. [0004] When a data service is performed in a manner of static APN dialing, an operator customizes multiple available APNs and store APN information in a terminal?le, terminal device software provides a manual selection interface, and when a terminal user manually selects a certain APN, a cor responding GGSN (Gateway GPRS Support Node, gateway GPRS support node) may be obtained to connect to a data network, so as to execute the data service. If the data network is connected successfully, process the data service, if the data network is not connected successfully, manually select another APN to connect to the data network, and if the data network is still not connected successfully, end the operation. [0005] When a data service is performed in a manner of dynamic APN dialing, multiple availableapns correspond to MCCs (Mobile Country Code, mobile country code) or MNCs (Mobile Network Code, mobile network code) of IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identi?cation Num ber, international mobile subscriber identi?cation number) number segments in SIM (Subscriber Identity Module, sub scriber identity module) cards, that is to say, SIM cards of different number segments correspond to different APN information. The APN information is stored in a terminal?le, and when a terminal user inserts a SIM card, a program in a terminal queries an MCC or MNC message in the SIM card, and automatically obtains, by adapting, an APN message corresponding to the MCC or MNC in the SIM card, so as to obtain a corresponding GGSN to connect to the data network, thereby executing the data service. [0006] With the expansion of operators business, each operator manages multiple sub-brands, and the sub-brands share a same MCC or MNC; however, the sub-brands may have different service types, and different services also have different APN information; when dialing is performed by using the prior art, available APN information may not be effectively acquired according to the MCC or MNC. SUMMARY [0007] Embodiments of the present invention provide a method and an apparatus for automatic dialing access point, which may implement automatic dialing, and improve cor rectness of acquired APN information. [0008] In order to achieve the foregoing objective, the embodiments of the present invention adopt the following technical solutions: [0009] A method for automatic dialing access point includes: [0010] performing automatic dialing in the following three manners in any sequence, until the dialing succeeds or the dialing still fails after the three manners are all used: [0011] detecting access point APN information corre sponding to information in a subscriber identity module SIM card, and performing automatic dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the information in the SIM card; [0012] detecting APN information corresponding to preset board software, and performing automatic dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the preset board software; and [0013] performing automatic dialing according to APN information preset in client software. [0014] An apparatus for automatic dialing access point includes: [0015] a?rst dialing unit, con?gured to detect APN infor mation corresponding to information in a SIM card, and perform automatic dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the information in the SIM card; [0016] a second dialing unit, con?gured to detect APN information corresponding to preset board software, and per form automatic dialing according to the detected APN infor mation corresponding to the preset board software; [0017] a third dialing unit, con?gured to perform automatic dialing according to APN information preset in client soft ware; and [0018] a control unit, con?gured to trigger any one of the?rst dialing unit, the second dialing unit, and the third dialing unit, trigger any one of the other two units when the unit fails in dialing, and when the dialing unit also fails in dialing, trigger the rest dialing unit. [0019] The method and apparatus for automatic dialing access point provided in the embodiments of the present invention can solve a problem that when sub-brands managed by an operator share a same MCC or MNC but do not share APN information due to different service types, available APN information may not be effectively acquired according to the MCC or MNC.

DESCRIPTION OF EMBODIMENTS [0027] To make the objectives, technical solutions, and advantages of the present invention clearer, the following further describes the present invention in detail with reference to the embodiments and the accompanying drawings. Herein, the exemplary embodiments of the present invention and the description are merely intended to explain the present inven tion, but are not intended to limit the present invention. Embodiment l [0028] An embodiment of the present invention provides a method for automatic dialing access point, and as shown in FIG. 1, the method includes: performing automatic dialing in three manners in any sequence as described in the following three steps, until the dialing succeeds or the dialing still fails after the three manners are all used: [0029] Step 101: Detect APN information corresponding to information in a SIM card, and perform automatic dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the information in the SIM card. [0030] Here, the information in the SIM card includes: an MCC or MNC, a GID (Group Identi?cation, group identi? cation) value, and a network standard with which the SIM card is registered. [0031] The APN information includes: APN information corresponding to the MCC or MNC, APN information corre sponding to the GID, and APN information corresponding to the network standard, where, the APN information is stored in the SIM card according to a combination sequence of the information in the SIM card, or stored in client software. [0032] Step 102: Detect APN information corresponding to preset board software, and perform automatic dialing accord ing to the detected APN information corresponding to the preset board software. [0033] The preset board software is software directly per forming interaction with hardware. The APN information corresponding to the preset board software mainly depends on APN information corresponding to a parameter written in the preset board software. An operator pre-con?gures APN information in board software of a product, and client soft ware acquires the APN information by sending an AT com mand, and performs automatic dialing. [0034] Step 103: Perform automatic dialing according to APN information preset in client software. [0035] In the method for automatic dialing access point provided in the embodiment of the present invention, auto matic dialing is performed in three manners: detecting APN information corresponding to information in a SIM card, and performing automatic dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the information in the SIM card; detecting APN information corresponding to preset board software, and performing automatic dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the preset board software; and performing automatic dialing according to APN information preset in client software. [0036] Compared with the prior art, a problem that when sub-brands managed by an operator share the same MCC or MNC but do not share APN information due to different service types, available APN information may not be effec tively acquired according to the MCC or MNC can be solved. [0037] An embodiment of the present invention provides an apparatus for automatic dialing access point, and as shown in FIG. 2, the apparatus includes: a?rst dialing unit 201, a second dialing unit 202, a third dialing unit 203, and a control unit 204. [0038] The?rst dialing unit 201 is con?gured to detect APN information corresponding to information in a SIM card, and perform automatic dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the information in the SIM card. [0039] The second dialing unit 202 is con?gured to detect APN information corresponding to preset board software, and perform automatic dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the preset board software. [0040] The third dialing unit 203 is con?gured to perform automatic dialing according to APN information preset in client software. [0041] The control unit 204 is con?gured to trigger any one of the?rst dialing unit 201, the second dialing unit 202, and the third dialing unit 203, trigger any one of the other two units when the unit fails in dialing, and when the dialing unit also fails in dialing, trigger the rest dialing unit. [0042] Preferably, the control unit may trigger the three dialing units according to a sequence being the?rst dialing unit 201, the second dialing unit 202, and the third dialing unit 203. Optionally, if the three dialing units all fail in dialing, the control unit further sends a prompt of dialing failure. [0043] Compared with the prior art, the apparatus for auto matic dialing access point provided in the embodiment of the present invention can solve a problem that when sub-brands managed by an operator share a same MCC or MNC but do not share APN information due to different service types, available APN information may not be effectively acquired according to the MCC or MNC. Embodiment 2 [0044] An embodiment of the present invention provides a method for automatic dialing access point, and as shown in FIG. 3, the method includes: [0045] In the solution provided in the embodiment of the present invention, automatic dialing may be performed in the following three manners: performing automatic dialing according to APN information corresponding to information in a SIM card, performing automatic dialing according to APN information corresponding to preset board software, and performing automatic dialing according to APN informa tion preset in client software; the three automatic dialing manners may be randomly ordered and randomly combined. In the present invention, a detailed description is given in a sequence that automatic dialing is performed?rst according to APN information corresponding to information in a SIM card, automatic dialing is performed according to APN infor mation corresponding to preset board software, and then automatic dialing is performed according to APN information preset in client software. [0046] Step 301: Detect access point APN information cor responding to information in a subscriber identity module

8 SIM card, and perform automatic dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the information in the SIM card. [0047] The information in the SIM card includes: a mobile country code MCC/mobile network code MNC, a group iden ti?cation GID value, and a network standard with which the SIM card is registered. [0048] An APN (Access Point Name, access point) is a parameter which must be con?gured when a terminal device accesses a network, and determines an access manner in which the terminal device accesses the network. [0049] Speci?cally, as shown in FIG. 4, an implementation manner of step 301 is as follows: [0050] It should be noted that, the APN information corre sponding to the information in the SIM card is preset accord ing to a combination of APN information corresponding to an MCC/MNC, APN information corresponding to a group identi?cation GID value, and APN information correspond ing to a network standard with which the SIM card is regis tered; further, a combination manner of the APN information corresponding to the information in the SIM card may be APN information corresponding to an MCC/MNC, APN information corresponding to a network standard with which the SIM card is registered, and APN information correspond ing to a group identi?cation GID value; or [0051] APN information corresponding to a group identi?cation GID value, APN information corresponding to an MCC/MNC, and APN information corresponding to a net work standard with which the SIM card is registered; or [0052] APN information corresponding to a group identi?cation GID value, APN information corresponding to a net work standard with which the SIM card is registered, and APN information corresponding to an MCC/MNC; or [0053] APN information corresponding to a network stan dard with which the SIM card is registered, APN information corresponding to an MCC/MNC, and APN information cor responding to a group identi?cation GID value; or [0054] APN information corresponding to a network stan dard with which the SIM card is registered, APN information corresponding to a group identi?cation GID value, and APN information corresponding to an MCC/MNC; and [0055] the APN information is preset according to any combination sequence of APN information as described in the foregoing, and automatic dialing may be performed according to the APN information corresponding to speci?c information. The APN information is stored in a?le of the SIM card, or stored in client software, and then anat (Atten tion) command is sent by the client software to query corre sponding APN information. [0056] Preferably, the APN information corresponding to the MCC/MNC and the APN information corresponding to the information in the GID have a strongest association, the network standard varies correspondingly according to a net work registration situation. Therefore, in an exemplary solu tion of the embodiment of the present invention, dialing according to the APN information corresponding to the infor mation in the SIM card is described in detail according to such a combination of APN information corresponding to an MCC/MNC, APN information corresponding to a group identi?cation GID value, and APN information correspond ing to a network standard with which the SIM card is regis tered. [0057] Step 401 : Acquire an MCC or MNC in the SIM card. [0058] MCC (Mobile Country Code) is a mobile country code, MCC resources are uniformly allocated and managed by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the MCC uniquely identi?es a country to which a mobile user belongs, and has a total of 3 digits, and the MCC of China is 460. [0059] MNC (Mobile Network Code) is a mobile network code, the MNC has a total of 2 digits, a GSM system of China Mobile uses 00 and 02, a GSM system of China Unicom uses 01, a CDMA system of China Telecom uses 03, and a TD system of China Mobile uses 07. [0060] Speci?cally, the client software queries the MCC or MNC by sending an AT (Attention) command. [0061] Step 402: Detect, according to the acquired MCC or MNC, whether APN information corresponding to the MCC or MNC exists. [0062] Speci?cally, according to the acquired MCC or MNC in the SIM card, it may acquire, in the?le of the SIM card or the client software, whether APN information corre sponding to the MCC or MNC exists. [0063] Step 403: If APN information corresponding to the MCC or MNC exists, perform automatic dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the MCC or MNC in the SIM card. [0064] Step 404: If no APN information corresponding to the MCC or MNC exists, acquire a GID value in the SIM card. [0065] If no APN information corresponding to the MCC or MNC exists, in this case, dialing needs to be performed in another manner. [0066] GID (Group Identi?cation, group identi?cation) refers to an identity of a user of a shared resource system, is a common graphical user interface having strong adaptability and a friendly user interface, which is used for geometrical simulation, data input, model transformation, grid and a visu alization result, and is applicable to all types of numerical simulation packets. SIM cards of some GIDs specially rep resent users having speci?c functions, for example, a type of users with a GID being A may be free in short messages, a type of users with a GID being A may be free in multimedia messages, and in this way, an operator may set APN informa tion according to the GID. [0067] Speci?cally, the client software acquires a GID value in the SIM card?le by sending an AT command. [0068] Step 405: Detect, according to the acquired GID value, whether APN information corresponding to the GID value exists. [0069] According to the acquired GID value, query the?le of the SIM card or the client software to determine whether APN information corresponding to the GID value exists. [0070] Step 406: If APN information corresponding to the GID value exists, perform automatic dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the GID value in the SIM card. [0071] Step 407: If no APN information corresponding to the GID value exists, acquire a network standard with which the SIM card is registered. [0072] The network standard is a type of network, and frequency bands commonly used by mobile phones in China mainly include a CDMAlX, 800 MHZ frequency band occu pied by CDMA mobile phones, a 900/ 1800/ 1900 MHZ fre quency band occupied by GSM mobile phones; a 900/1800 MHZ frequency band occupied by GSMlX dual-mode; and a 900/1 800/ 1900/2100 MHZ frequency band occupied by 3G.

9 [0073] Step 408: Detect, according to the acquired network standard, whether APN information corresponding to the net work standard exists. [0074] Step 409: If APN information corresponding to the network standard exists, perform automatic dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the net work standard with which the SIM card is registered. [0075] Step 410: If no APN information corresponding to the network standard exists, dialing fails. [0076] If no APN information corresponding to the net work standard exists, a manner of performing automatic dial ing according to the APN information corresponding to the information in the SIM card fails, and automatic dialing needs to be performed in another manner. [0077] Continuously referring to step 302 in FIG. 3, deter mine whether the dialing succeeds. [0078] Step 303: If the dialing succeeds, start a browser. [0079] Step 304: When the dialing fails, detect APN infor mation corresponding to preset board software, and perform automatic dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the preset board software. [0080] A board generally refers to a circuit board, and speci?cally may be a PCB board. The preset board software is software directly performing interaction with hardware, and the APN information corresponding to the preset board soft ware mainly depends on APN information corresponding to a parameter written in the preset board software. A product provider pre-con?gures APN information of a user in preset board software, and client software acquires the APN infor mation by sending an AT command, and performs dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the preset board software. [0081] Step 305: Determine whether the dialing succeeds. [0082] If the dialing succeeds, turn to step 303 to start the browser and perform data processing. [0083] Step 306: When the previous dialing fails, perform automatic dialing according to APN information preset in the client software. [0084] It should be noted that, after being installed, a client stores preset APN information to a PC, and the client software reads the APN information from a con?guration?le on the PC, and performs automatic dialing. [0085] Step 307: Determine whether the dialing succeeds. [0086] If the dialing succeeds, turn to step 303 to start the browser and perform data processing. [0087] Step 308: When the dialing fails, start a diagnosis function. [0088] It should be noted that, when the automatic dialing fails, manual dialing may be performed according to the APN information set by the user, the client software provides an interface for creating APN, and the APN information is acquired from the operator. [0089] If all dialing manners fail, the client software diag noses information such as signal strength, whether hardware is damaged, and whether the SIM card is damaged, so as to illustrate that the dialing fails. [0090] It should be noted that, in the solution provided in the embodiment of the present invention, a sequence of the three manners of performing automatic dialing is not strictly?xed, and the three manners of automatic dialing, namely, performing automatic dialing according to APN information corresponding to information in a SIM card, performing auto matic dialing according to APN information corresponding to preset board software, and performing automatic dialing according to APN information preset in client software, may be randomly ordered and randomly combined. [0091] In the method for automatic dialing access point provided in the embodiment of the present invention, auto matic dialing is performed according to the provided three manners, and compared with the prior art, the method can solve a problem that when sub -brands managed by an opera tor share the same MCC or MNC but do not share APN information due to different service types, available APN information may not be effectively acquired according to the MCC or MNC. [0092] An embodiment of the present invention provides an apparatus for automatic dialing access point, and as shown in FIG. 5, the apparatus includes: a?rst dialing unit 501, a determining unit 502, a login unit 503, a second dialing unit 504, a third dialing unit 505, a diagnosis starting unit 506, and a control unit 507. [0093] The?rst dialing unit 501 is con?gured to detect APN information corresponding to information in a SIM card, and perform automatic dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the information in the SIM card. [0094] The information in the SIM card includes: a mobile country code MCC/mobile network code MNC, a group iden ti?cation GID value, and a network standard with which the SIM card is registered. [0095] The login unit 503 is con?gured to: if the dialing succeeds, start a browser and perform data processing. [0096] The control unit 507 is con?gured to trigger any one of the?rst dialing unit 501, the second dialing unit 504, and the third dialing unit 505, trigger any one of the other two units when the unit fails in dialing, and when the dialing unit also fails in dialing, trigger the rest dialing unit. [0097] The second dialing unit 504 is con?gured to detect APN information corresponding to preset board software, and perform automatic dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the preset board software. [0098] A board generally refers to a circuit board, and speci?cally may be a PCB board. The preset board software is software directly performing interaction with hardware, and the APN information corresponding to the preset board soft ware mainly depends on APN information corresponding to a parameter written in the preset board software. A product provider pre-con?gures APN information of a user in preset board software, and client software acquires the APN infor mation by sending an AT command, and performs dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the preset board software. [0099] The third dialing unit 505 is con?gured to perform automatic dialing according to APN information preset in client software. [0100] The control unit 507 is further con?gured to: if the three dialing units all fail in dialing, further send a prompt of dialing failure. The diagnosis unit 506 is con?gured to start a diagnosis function when the control unit 507 prompts dialing failure. [0101] It should be noted that, when the automatic dialing fails, manual dialing may be performed according to the APN information set by the user, the client software provides an interface for creating APN, and the APN information is acquired from the operator.

10 [0102] If all dialing manners fail, the client software diag noses information such as signal strength, whether hardware is damaged, and whether the SIM card is damaged, so as to illustrate that the dialing fails. [0103] It should be noted that, in the apparatus for perform ing automatic dialing in the solution provided in the embodi ment of the present invention, a sequence of execution of the?rst dialing unit, the second dialing unit and the third dialing unit in the apparatus is not strictly?xed, and the sequence of performing automatic dialing of the three units may be ran domly ordered and randomly combined. Preferably, the con trol unit may trigger the three dialing units according to a sequence being the?rst dialing unit, the second dialing unit, and the third dialing unit. [0104] Speci?cally, as shown in FIG. 6, the?rst dialing unit 501 includes: an acquiring module 601, a detecting module 602, a dialing module 603, and a control module 604. [0105] The acquiring module 601 is con?gured to acquire an MCC or MNC in a SIM card. [0106] MCC (Mobile Country Code) is a mobile country code, MCC resources are uniformly allocated and managed by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the MCC uniquely identi?es a country to which a mobile user belongs, and has a total of 3 digits, and the MCC of China is 460. [0107] MNC (Mobile Network Code) is a mobile network code, the MNC has a total of 2 digits, a GSM system of China Mobile uses 00 and 02, a GSM system of China Unicom uses 01, a CDMA system of China Telecom uses 03, and a TD system of China Mobile uses 07. [0108] The detecting module 602 is con?gured to detect, according to the acquired MCC or MNC, whetherapn infor mation corresponding to the MCC or MNC exists. [0109] After acquiring the MCC or MNC, query a?le in the SIM card to determine whetherapn information correspond ing to the MCC or MNC exists. [0110] The dialing module 603 is con?gured to: if APN information corresponding to the MCC or MNC exists, per form automatic dialing according to the detected APN infor mation corresponding to the MCC or MNC in the SIM card. [0111] The acquiring module 601 is further con?gured to acquire the GID value in the SIM card. [0112] GID refers to an identity of a user of a shared resource system, is a common graphical user interface having strong adaptability and a friendly user interface, which is used for geometrical simulation, data input, model transformation, grid and a visualization result, and is applicable to all types of numerical simulation packets. SIM cards of some GIDs spe cially represent users having speci?c functions, for example, a type of users with a GID being A may be free in short messages, a type ofusers with a GID being A may be free in multimedia messages, and in this way, an operator may set APN information according to the GID. [0113] The detecting module 602 is further con?gured to detect, according to the acquired GID value, whether APN information corresponding to the GID value exists. [0114] The dialing module 603 is further con?gured to: if APN information corresponding to the GID value exists, perform automatic dialing according to the detected APN information corresponding to the GID value in the SIM card.
