I think the issue is if the phone can bug *any* conversation You have 
when the phone is around, not only phone conversations. That is a valid 
concern. And I believe Neo can be safe if we make sure to use the mixer 
to turn of the mic/speaker connection to the gsm chip while there is no 
active phonecall... That is... unless ti have a mic on the gsm chip :-)
