In conclusion,

1. Both iPhone and OpenMoko are revolutionary, and in different ways.
2. Neither is designed to save you money.
3. Seamless VoIP over WiFi on a cellphone is an interesting idea, and
could save you money and trouble if you make a lot of long-distance
calls and spend a lot of time around open access points.
4. Carriers won't like you saving money, so an open-source phone is
your best bet.
5. Neo1973 rev 1 will not have WiFi, but a later revision probably will.
6. You could even write the code yourself.
