A couple of examples of prior implementations of scratching this itch 
without voice-over-[wireless]-internet-protocol were BT's offering with 
a GSM/DECT handset (Ericsson) and GSM-CTS.

might make an interesting read. Of course, since these ideas helped 
reduce call costs, the carriers didn't embrace them.
