WiFi & Cell Phones

Are there any combo units that offer WiFi (802.11b) and a Cell Phone?

Okay, this may seem like a very silly question, but I have a recent bad experience with AT&T WS and my new Blackberry.

First, let me tell you I love the 7280... it's all that is promised and more, fully integrated with my corporate email, calendar and local PIM. No problems.

However, AT&T WS requires the data plan be primary ($50/month) preventing me from having a Shared-minutes plan as primary. Net result. I can no longer share my voice minutes and have to have my own (as opposed to shared with my family's other three phones)?a second $40/month plan.

I can live without the near-universal access that GPRS provides, but I'd like to use it in my wireless environment at home and the many hot spots popping up throughout the country. Any suggestions?
