Submission + - Best Phone for a Wifi-Only Location?

bendodge writes: "I am planning on heading to a university in a remote area with very poor cellular service (the only signal is spotty Verizon voice, no data). However, the entire campus is thoroughly blanketed in Wifi. I am trying to find the best and most economical "Wifi phone" or else hack one together. Belkin/Netgear sell what is essentially a portable Skype device for $180. Some folks over here recommend outfitting an iPod touch with a mic and VOIP apps.

I am looking for something that can make and receive calls to and from landlines with incoming call notification. What experiences have Slashdot readers had and what would you recommend?"
