Problem there is the rule based engine is trying to decide to answer the 
call, put it to voice mail, vibrate, ring loud, etc...  Waiting 30-60 
seconds for a cold start fix from the GPS is too long.

     The only security of all is in a free press. The force of public 
opinion cannot be resisted when permitted freely to be expressed. The 
agitation it produces must be submitted to. It is necessary, to keep the 
waters pure.
