Sure, your WiFi will continue to work even without cell coverage. I don't think you can receive calls made to your number though with those voice services you suggested. Don't you get a new number assigned with Google Voice?

Google voice will work. You can receive and make calls. OP needs an app like sipdroid to get it to receive calls. Also need to make sure wifi stays on all the time, but this could be battery draining.
