Phones should be capable of making calls within five seconds not after two minutes. Imagine a life threating situation and having to wait two minutes to make an emergency call.

Don't most people just put their phones on lock/stand-by rather than turning them off?

Many people, like me, turn their phones off so they aren't distracted by unwanted calls. Others only use their phones in an emergency. My mobile phone is really just a portable answering machine that sits on my desk and gets checked once a day.
