    When there is no reception

    There's a bar that I go to that gets little to no reception from any carrier (its under a parking garage). I get missed calls and cannot snd/receive txt msgs. This place does have wifi. My question is: Is there a way to use that wifi to send or receive calls/messages with my same phone number?

    Nexus One (on it's own) does not support 'VOIP' which would enable you to receive / make calls via the internet.

    Messages can be used over the internet, however I believe you would have to use a web base browser; for the Nexus to retrieve it.

    Sorry to bring up this old post (thanks Bishop for your answer).
    Are there any apps now that would allow me to send and receive calls through wifi when there's not network connection? I understand that I may have to switch any settings on and off if there is a way.
    BTW,I also have a GV number if that helps.

    I found this app but I haven't tried it yet...I'm such a newbie on these type of things
