Subject: VoIP call transfer?


I have an itch that I would like to explain to you and give an idea of
how to overcome that itch and see if that is possible or not, and if so
a good idea or not.  So first here is my itch.  I have a VoIP phone at
home which uses my WiFi connection to make calls using skype.  I like
that it helps lower my cell phone bills a lot since I started a new
business and it takes a lot of calls to make it sucessful.  But I am not
always at home sometimes I am just 5 minutes out from home and recieve a
phone call I talk on the way home and then to cut my minutes short I
tell them I will call them right back and then hang up switch to my VoIP
phone.  That gets old sometimes.  Granted it is not a very big itch but
it is annoying. 


So I have come up with several solutions.  First, with the neo I could
get a plan that includes data with my minutes and I could use skype or
some other VoIP solution like astrisk.  Which in turn would be great.
Oh also another question can you get a data only plan?  Just curious I
know some people may or may not have mentioned it but the thread that it
was mentioned in has over 80 e-mails and couldn't find it right off.
But let's pretend that for somereason you didn't want to add a data plan
to your mobile device because it was too expensive or what ever.  Would
it be possible for the neo to know when you step into range of a WiFi
network that you have acess to?  And after it notices the WiFi
connection it pops up a button on the screen that say's transfer to
VoIP?  You say hold on a sec and press the button.  The neo then puts
the user on hold and transfers the call to your VoIP line on your neo
where you pick it up, or the neo picks it up.  The voice line then hangs
up the call and puts the person back on the line with you.  Does that
make since?  Also when making a call and I am in range of a WiFi network
a check box or a seperate call with VoIP button appears that allows you
to place the same call over the VoIP?  Does that make since?  Just
wanting to get everyones opinions on this.  


This is a feature that I would like very much.  I have internet at home
which has a 15Mbps transfer rate with a 1000GB cap so I should be free
and clear with this.  I would love to have this feature.  I would like
to learn how to do this on the neo but would definatly need more time to
research it out.  Plus I would need more time to work on it, maybe when
I graduate school.  I would also need someone to help me.  Any ways I am
starting to ramble so please let me know what you think about this?
