But beside of time - localisation would be also working
- Leave this place +/- 50-100m  and the phone will ring again.

"Don't ring here, now"-modus

But GPS system could have errors, so I would like to see an GPS controll
network to warn OpenMoko/Neo1973 users when GPS is not working proper
way  - ok not ALARM! BEEEP ALARM! BEEEP ALARM!..non proper GPS could 
activate  unforseen  non-silent modus and maybe will trouble you

So the time methode would be a more trustable one ;)
