GrooveIP is a great solution if you're using it just for WIFI. Works flawlessly with Google Voice. I use it all the time, let me know if you need help setting it up.

As for the WIFI only ROM...Why? Just use any ROM you like and turn the data off, and keep the WIFI on... same thing, no? I don't get what difference it would make it's the same thing. Normal ROM, data disabled. Anyways hope everything works out for ya!

Well, you don't want it accessing the cellular networks at all so that you don't emergency call. I don't know about his case, but you definitely want to make sure that can't happen if you're giving a kid the old device as a media player.

If you are just using it as a tablet like device...with no sim card it can't dial and it can still use wifi. Simple solution, just take the sim out. Lol

Airplane mode + Wi-Fi is your best bet. Works great

Actually, it can still do an SOS call. I think that may be a regulatory compliance thing. I think you can try seeing what happens if you freeze the phone app.

I'll try it out on my phone, see if I can't replicate the issue and speak with the dev. Exactly what MIUI build are you on?

*EDIT:

Installed on EliteMod 120316 and upon first boot did get something about the mms process FC'ing. Upon subsequent reboots no more message though, have you tried another reboot? You had two processes FC?
