OK, Ive done a small amount of research and Im pretty sure the answer to this question is no, but I am asking it anyway... Ive been talking my sister into buying an ipod touch because I love mine so much. The only problem is she doesnt want to pay very much. But now that apple says they are releasing the 3g iphone 8gb for $199, I was thinking maybe she should just buy that and use it as an ipod touch without actually activating it and paying the monthly phone bill. Can she do this? Also, do you have any idea when the ipod touch will go down in price?
