Well, but what about any free-lessons?
I know your problem very well, being a student myself.
I tried to solve it like you did,  coding an application which
selects - depending on the cell-id my phone supplies - the
right profile. But I often get calls in times we have no school.
The phone just don't knows about it, well, how should it, so I miss
them because I don't hear/fell any action of my phone.

So, I think, a GPS AND time based selection would be great.
I don't really know if it'd be possible for the phone to filter the
incoming audio for the signal of the bell, but that'd be the
best solution in my opinon.

However, the idea itself is just great!
