    Hello,
    I was just wondering if there is, or in the future will be, any internet that you can pay monthly for to get internet on the ipod touch so it isnt just wifi. Thanks so much

    Apple hasn't said anything, and it probably won't happen.

    But why don't you email sjobs@apple.com and see!

    The only way this could be done is with a mobile broadband attachment for the Touch. It IS possible, but would likely not happen, and would require a monthly bill and the adaptor. Not to mention an app to run it, along with a network to connect to.

    Look up Verizon Mobile Broadband, and you'll see what I'm talking about. It COULD be done with an iPod, but would require a lot of work.

    Technically, with a jailbroken iPod and a modified cable, a developer COULD make it happen with a mobile broadband card. However, that would be quite bulky, and possibly violate the TOS of the Mobile Broadband's contract.

    That is what the iphone is for. It won't happen on the touch. The only possibility is wimax if it gets big enough.

    Not gonna happen, but you can always get an iPhone and carry 3G/EDGE with you anywhere.

    too bad ATT has by far the worst 3G coverage in America out of all the major companies.
