    There is a mic for voice memos, other apps that use the mic, such as shazam which records a song that is playing and can identify it. You can use it with skype, voip etc, but you do need wifi for those. You can't use it as a real phone anywhere you want, unless you have wifi wherever you go.

    Wow, so many people asking if what their friend said is true... a simple google search to see if the iPhone still exists should be enough to answer your question.

    This has been possible since the iPod touch 1G.

    Have you ever heard of Skype ? You can place calls to mobile phones (for a charge, of course) within the US and Canada but you're bound by wifi range.

    You can also send it off to some random person to have it modded to have a chip put in and to have it severely modified to work as a phone. Not the smartest thing to do, but I do know that it's possible to do.

    I was told that too, what gives. I tried flying; but the end result, a broken phone (JK, I love my iPhone 3GS).

    My father's brother's mother's sister's cousin's former roommate told me the new iPod will have built-in satellite radio.

    What does that make that claim? Absolutely nothing.
