A wireless communication method and device for managing information available via a wireless connection. Service information may be transmitted to a wireless communication device (WCD) via a short-range wireless network. Authentication information is scanned from an object containing machine-readable data via a different short-range communication medium. The authentication information is used to determine whether the downloaded service information should be permanently stored and made available in the user interface of the WCD.

receiving service information via a wireless connection;
receiving service authentication information via a wireless communication medium distinct from the wireless connection by way of machine through reading a service authentication and authorization tag;
comparing the service information to the service authentication information;
authenticating a service if the service information corresponds to the service authentication information;
receiving user authorization information via the wireless communication medium;
comparing the service information to the user authorization information;
authorizing the service information if the service information corresponds to the user authorization information; and
if the service is authenticated and the service information is authorized, moving the received service information to a storage of a wireless communication device and the service information is accessible on the wireless communication device.
