    Please help with a signal reception issue, I really want to stay with Cricket

    I'm new to a lot of this, I've had Cricket now for 10 years and have recently moved to a new home, my issue now is that I live in a basement of a house that gets almost zero Cricket reception/signal. I'm actually still using a Motorola Razr, with the Razr I get 1 bar if I'm lucky, it's not just Cricket though it's any CDMA network Sprint and Verizon also barely work in my home. I recently purchased a Optimus C and basically get no bars in my basement and 1x internet if I'm lucky. So here is my question instead of having to purchase a $350.00 signal booster/repeater is there a solution that when I'm only in my home I can switch to my Wifi/router and make and receive calls and make and receive texts somehow using Gmail and VOIP? and if that is possible would the person texting or calling my standard cricket phone number be routed to me thru Gmail? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also would I have to port my number to Google Voice? If my phone is connected to my wifi while i'm say asleep but the phone has zero cell signal will I still receive the incoming call just with the router/wifi??

    You can try GrooveIP for calls and the Google Voice application for text messaging. You need Google Voice for both. So, I'd recommend giving out your new Google Voice number, or porting your number to Google Voice.

    And, yes, you will still receive a call over WiFi even if you don't have a signal.
