A user may select a profile to serve as an active profile on adevice, and content objects associated withthe active profile may be stored on the device responsive to the selection.
When the profile is set as the active profile and an incoming call is received, an automatic response is provided to the incoming call in accordance with the setting.
The indication of the active profile may then be used as a criterion for an operation in the network element.
In a network enabling a communication between different devices, a network element may receive an indication of an active profile for at least one device.
Content objectsthat are not associated with the active profile may be transferred to one or more additional devicesbased on a prioritization scheme.
A mechanism is provided for identifying one or more attributes in an incoming device event and for overriding the active notification profile with one of the exception notification profiles that has attributes corresponding to the identified attributes.
