When a user's cell phone is low on battery or if the user is running out of pre-paid minutes, he usually wants to avoid answering the phone unless the call is important. Currently, the user's phone rings and he has to look at the caller ID and decide whether to answer the phone or not. In the case of low battery, the ringing phone uses some more battery power - user's would like to avoid this too.
