Default Can I Turn Off Cell Radio

I would like to know if I can turn off the cell radio on my HTC Magic but keep the WiFi on.

I live in an area where the cell signal is very poor for all carriers (I'm with Rogers). So when I'm at home I have my phone set to call forward to my landline phone and use WiFi as my connection to the internet for e-mail, MSN, etc.

I know you can put the phone into "Airplane Mode" but this disables all radio including WiFi.

The reason I want to disable only the cell radio is that my phone is constantly losing and reacquiring the signal from Rogers which eats up battery.

Any ideas or an App suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
