Abstract

The idea is to add a phone profile that allows the phone owner to set his/her phone to silent and let only emergency calls ring. So in addition to existing profiles (Loud, vibrate, Normal, Silent, etc.), there would be a new profile called "Emergency" or "Emergency Only". When the phone is set to this profile, the caller will get a message that informs him/her to press a certain button if this is an emergency/urgent call. If the caller presses that button, the phone will then ring. Otherwise the caller can either leave a message or call back later. Phone owner will be able to set the phone on silent, not disturb people, and be able to sleep, all without missing any urgent or emergency calls.
