There is also an app in the play store Unlock with Wifi for $4.99. I don't mind the $4.99 price tag but for that I could use tasker for that and so much more. Any suggestions/recommendations.
Tasker can do this, and so much more. The down side is that you have to be rooted to do it as it requires a special plugin to perform the task.

This was the sole reason I rooted my last phone, to do exactly this and one other automated task - rebooting my phone automatically every morning. I honestly do not understand why both of these functions cannot be done without rooting. It would seem that it should be something the phone is easily capable of doing.

But the answer to your question is yes, with the previously stated caveat.
