    No way to do it unless you get something like a device sold by Vodafone called Sure signal. It will still only work for Vodafone in the UK I believe.

    dang well i think they should try and make an app that will do that for situations where you have wifi but no cell service so you can still use your phone for calls and all that

    It is not that simple. Maybe something like Google Voice or a SIP client?

    Depending on your service provider, they may have something called a femtocell. Sprints version is called the airrave. What it is, is a personal cell phone tower! Yup it runs off your broadband connection, and it provides signal for up to 3 simulanious devices!
