 You can use cell- or WiFi-based coarse location. You still have to go
through the same process with a LocationManager and Geocoder as you do
for GPS, but you can probably usually get away with
getLastKnownLocation() instead of requestLocationUpdates()...unless
the user just got off of an international flight (and the radios have
been and may still be turned off).
Instead of using a Criteria with ACCURACY_FINE, use ACCURACY_COARSE
and in AndroidManifest.xml, instead of uses-permission

That's not location aware of course, it's just where the SIM and
network are registered, but that may be more appropriate anyway,
