    Hi,

    Can you please let me if the following is possible with the iPod touch :

    1) Using Skype , if I am connected to the net and someone calls my skype number, will the Ipod touch ring and let meknowsomeone is calling me ? Even if I am in a different application at the time of the call ?

    2) Can I listen to internet radio ?

    3) Can I connect the Ipod Touch to the internet if there is no Wifi, for example by using a USB cable on a wired connected PC ?


    Thank you for your help

    u can call anyone with skype but i think u have to pay for it unless u are call someone on skype then its free. I havent tried it that much tho and when u do call someone like a cell phone it show up as restricted or private for that person recieving the call so im pretty sure that u dont get a number for the person to call u back. so no one can call u only u can call them

    Thank you,

    I will only use the Ipod for Skype to Skype , so in my case it should be free to make or to receive calls.

    Cheers Jadrien
