Does anyone know of an app (on iOS, Android or any platform) that will allow me to place one phone in a part of my house that has good phone signal, and have it relay all calls to another device using my home's WiFi?

Yes - handsfree bluetooth accessories will work to extend the range a good 25 or more feet in many cases. You could also rig a wire and have much, much longer extension, but I can't imagine wanting to be wired to the phone and using a handsfree in that manner.

There are many, many mobile base stations that work with all manner of cellular towers and technologies, so those would be my next choice if you can't get the phone close enough to reception for bluetooth to extend the range to your body.

    It seems surprising that a solution that doesn't rely on additional hardware wouldn't already exist - I'd have thought that an app, installed on two phones, ought to be able to manage this. Even if only on jailbroken phones... Commented Dec 26, 2013 at 23:39

    Seems like a big security risk to allow another device to tap into the calling data stream. At least people that are conscious of security can turn off bluetooth and/or not plug in a cord.
