+ - Fixed Wireless Phone

SkipF writes: I would like to move my land line to a cell phone. But I don't want a puny portable phone dangling off its charger cord on my phone stand. I've seen a couple of hacks where people modded a hand held cell into a desk phone chassis, but I don't think I'm up to that. I've read stories about companies making a "Fixed Wireless Phone" for Africa / India and other places that have problems with infrastructure. Has anyone ever worked with one of these? Are they available in the US? Can I use one with a standard Cell provider?
