During approach the mobile phone of the captain sounded for an incoming text message. From that moment the communication between the flight crew members broke down. At 500ft HAA the GPWS system warned for 'too low gear' and flaps config 2. The captain selected gear down and flaps config 3 while the F/O as pilot flying was preparing for a go-around. Eventually a go-around was made and an uneventful second approach was completed.
