landline to smartphone

Good afternoon,

Not sure anyone here can answer this one but.....

would like a device for my landline, want all calls to my landline to route via wifi, bluetooth to my cell/mobile phones, only when at home.
the call forwarding option would not work for me as want the calls to go to 2+ mobiles, also in the UK this service can be an additional charge, also only want the call forwarding to occure when im at home.
would like to keep the home phones in place, maybe working on a hunt group solution, mobile rings 3 times then to the home phone, or all ring together. not to fussed on how that works as long as both are funcional.
thats for incoming, also would be usefull to be able to route some outgoing calls from my mobile down the landline.
in the UK we generally always have a landline as required for ADSL conection. i know in some countries this is not the case, hence why many people are able to do without a landline, unfortuanly we dont have that option really.
is anyone aware of a device which would solve this issue.

Many thanks

Thankyou both for your answers, i assume from your responces that the product im looking for does not exsist.

 Mikal613: interesting product, but this seems to combine Voip and analogy, also alows call forwarding to your cellphone, but it seems this forwards back out via your analog line, and in the UK this would cost/ min for each call.
unfortuatly this would not suit but thankyou for your help. still and interesting product to read up on.

4drahil: this is also an intersting soultion, but again would re rout call back out via my line,

the soultion im looking for should not incure any additional expence othr that hardware.
want a device to forward landline to mobile over bluetooth to a smartphone not to reroute back out the landline. the call is aready in the building just need it to be pushed to my smartphone. simular to having a plantronics blutooth headset connected to your landline phone, just forwarding the call not to a headset but to a smartphone,  surly not a dificult device to design. would require some for of app for the smartphone for recieving.

so ok, no device out there, feeling a dragons den application comming on, ("shark tank" for the US)

ok anyone developed any hardware independently, any tips on how to get started creating such a device.

If not all many thanks
i'll leave this open over the weekend, i'll share the point on monday between  the first 2 post and any further usefull responces.
