Here's my idea:
If I'm within 30ft of my base station, have it ring. I have a nice headset I use there because I'm on conference calls a lot.
If I'm further than 30ft, but within bluetooth range, have the base station use my cell as a bluetooth device.
If I'm out of bluetooth range, but within wifi range, have the router send the call to my cell instead of the base station. Then, if I want, let me walk up to my base station and *automagically* transfer the call by picking up the headset.
If I'm out of wifi range, forward the call to my unlisted cell.
So, you're out and about, getting your calls all day, and as soon as you get close to your home phone you get cheaper service and the ability to use your more convenient devices transparently.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
And I *don't want this to require going into a webpage and entering a billion fields*. It should be a learning device: There should be one option to activate this on the cell, and then you press a button on the main phone. After the main phone (base) discovers the cell they should transfer enough information that the base syncs bluetooth and can detect the cell on the LAN.
