In most cases the answer is no but if you have a landline that is provided using VOIP and the service provider provides the SIP details you can install an VOIP app on a smart phone and use it to make calls using the landline, The calls will be charged at normal landline rates even if overseas but you use a small amount of data on each call. A normal landline phone can not be connected to a mobile network.

Thanks for that. I did a bit of searching and it appears that some sort of landline/mobile bridge is available in other countries, and accessed by dialing a code prior to the number.

 

No surprize that this isn't available here in Oz.
