1. A method of communication between an electronic device and a cellular network employing a communication protocol, comprising:
the device initiating a connection with the network, wherein during the initiation the device issues to the network at least one information criterion for communication protocol filtering rules;
the device receiving a response from the network indicating whether the connection has been established, and also whether the network supports communication protocol filtering rules using the information criterion provided by the device;
and wherein once the connection is established, if the network supports communication protocol filtering rules using the information criterion, the network forwards to the device only communications required by said communication protocol and any communications which meet the information criterion issued by the device, and blocks all other communications; and
if the network does not support communication protocol filtering rules using the information criterion then the network forwards to the device communications which do not meet the information criterion, and the device then drops said communications which do not meet the information criterion.
