    Dont pay attention to this guy/\

    If your school has wifi and you can connect to it, you all can chat with aim or any other chat app on the app store. If not then unfortunately you can't sorry.

    And welcome to the site.

    Pictures, or it didn't happen.

    How else would the device communicate with the other users? Unless you plan to write the message, and physically hand it to someone.

    How would you network the devices without Wifi?

    i meant like have two or more ipods connect to each other and start a "chat room" much like the Nintendo Ds did. but i hate the Ds so i thought someone would have been able to do that, again i am very new to the touch.

    How do you think the Nintendo DS does it? (Hint: It has a Wifi chip in it) What you are probably asking for is something with an Ad-Hoc Network. Or for the device itself to create an Ad-Hoc network.

    I actualy have the same question.

    The ipod touch can connect via wifi to itunes,
    so there should be a possibility to localy chat on the wifi without having to connect to a chatroom via a server, no?
    like 1 ipod touch is the host, the other ipods connect to that host and we have a local MSN-like application.

    They really didn't think of that?
    hard to believe...
