    Hey, so I got my apple iphone 3g headset for my iTouch 1st gen on ebay. And I plugged it in and did some test calls with skype, and i got NO sound while recording into the mic!! So I went to my friend, used his iTouch 2nd Gen, did test calls, and they worked!

    So, the problem must be some software isn't compatible with it in the iTouch. I have a jailbroken iTouch, and I want my mic to work. My version is 2.2, and I'm wondering if there's some hack so I can get this mic to work.

    Please help, thanks!

    I don't think the mic is 1G compatible, not entirely sure, get a 2G, it's much better.

    Yea I could get a dock plug, but I already bought a two in one headset. Isn't there a just a mod to allow my ipod to accept mics?

    or just get an iPhone. it has a built in mic xD

    i think they have this new mic something like Voice III or something like that and its a mic that connects through the 30pin connector.

    Dude im sorry to tell you its hardware.
    Not software.
    As far as mods im 99% sure there are no mods so you can use the apple headphone w/mic, but you can get a mic that plugs into the 30 pin dock connector.

    f*ck.. that sucks

    So I guess the question is: whats the cheapest mic that will work with my itouch?

    I want to be able to listen to my ipod touch, and talk into the mic, so if the dock mic is so big that i cant fit my earphones in, then i dont want that mic.

    thanks

    Well the only way is the dock... best thing to do is swap it for a 2g.
