    That will never happen....Ever to an ipod touch, if u want a phone go by an iphone... also the ipod touch has no recorder or mouth piece to talk, which is needed for talking...Its just not possible on the ipod touch


    EDIT: O and also the ipod touch cant connect to cell towers and its wifi range is quite small

    I assume you're talking about the 3.5mm headset port?

    No. It's only a line-out jack; it doesn't have line-in capabilities.

    .........................wow...
    usually i would think of such an idea as cool
    but for some reason this idea seems rather stupid...
    why not just buy an iphone?
    with all these hacks going around...seems to me that some people are starting to miss the purpose of an iPOD

    i swear sometimes i dont think that some people understand the limitations of technology and think that it has somehow advanced to the point of magic

    Hmm, wouldn't Skype be a possibility? There is voice chat possible on the psp and the Nintendo DS, I don't think this is impossible, but how practical is it? You'd be tied down to a Wi-Fi spot. Better off keeping a cell phone with you.

    Not everyone wants a cell phone

    The naysayers to this question are too quick to dump on the idea of the touch using VOIP. I have no interest in a cell phone for a lot of reasons and not the least of them is being tied to any contract with a corporation like AT&T. But it might be useful to have a mobile VOIP option sometimes and Skype on iPT would be a great solution. A third party device that plugs into the USB port could provide the input and duh! obviously the iPod is already equipped for audio output.
