    Basically like the subject says. I don't have awesome service at my house(surprisingly with Verizon). Is there a way to run my phone calls, texts, all my "network" services through my home wifi?

    Doesn't Verizon have those fem-to-cell or whatever they are called extenders for low/no coverage areas- a thing that acts as a mini base station, connects via Internet and creates coverage for the area of your house?

    Ummm... just turning wifi on doesnt work for u? Try going to setting -> wireless networks -> wifi settings hit the menu hardkey button -> advanced -> wifi sleep policy and select never. That will make ur phone only use wifi and not vzw's 3g when theres wifi available.

    I've got the phone networked in through wifi for internet service, but it doesn't help with coverage. Verizon has the interfaces to boost signal in the household, but they want to charge a monthly fee for it like sprint does. I just didn't know if there was an app that would use the wifi for regular phone service?

    I was reading an article somewhere recently you can get one for free if your coverage is bad. Google around, you might get lucky.
