8220 wifi

I live in an area that has poor cell reception. I purchased a new 8220 GSM phone with Wifi to use in conjunction with my home T-Mobile Wifi router to get around my local reception problem. I don't subscribe to any BB services but I was able to get online, once I went through the set-up process. The bad news is - I can't connect with the Wifi to make phone calls! My local T-Mobile dealer said I must have a T-Mobile branded phone to work with my T-Mobile router. Is there anyway to upgrade, modify or otherwise alter my 8220 or OS or anything else, that might allow me to make phone calls via my T-Mobile home Wifi router?
