GPS is a silly way to do this until we have 802.11 roaming, and even then I doubt it. This is something that belongs in DHCP -- both for wifi phones and even for wired phones and laptop soft clients. When you get your IP address, it should tell you both a location, and in fact the SIP or other URL of the 911 service. Ie in a corporate lan, it could go to corporate security as the pbx often does.

If nothing comes from DHCP, you can have backups, like an address registered with the service or in the phone.
