just saw Magic Jack on yahoo. you can connect your cell to the interent without using your plans minutes. looks like verizon and sprint customers might be out of luck on this one though.

The device then detects when a compatible cell phone comes within 8 feet, and places a call to it.

8 feet?! Geeze - you gotta be sitting on top of the thing practically.. not a bad idea though- i was planning on getting an AT&T Femtocell for our iPhones because we have very low signal where we live.. maybe i'll try this instead.

Sounds like the 8 foot rulke is only for the inital connect. It goes on to say "The phone is then linked to the magicJack, and as long as it's within range (YMax said it will cover a 3,000-square-foot home) magicJack routes the call itself, over the Internet, rather than going through the carrier's cellular tower."

Sounds pretty spiffy... or should i say ... snazzy? (i made a funny Tongue)
