    I am very tempted to upgrade to the new ipod Touch 4gen but want to make sure of certain capabilties as my sister in the UK is getting an iphone 4 and I want to be able to communicate with her.

    1. Are the built in mic and speakers strong enough to be able to use with out external earplugs and mic? So that it looks like you are using a phone. I would be using Skype.
    2. Will I be able to communicate using Facetime with my sister's iphone 4?
    3. Is the camera only for outside use or can you use it inside too?

    Many thanks for any advice! By the way, I do not want to jailbreak.

    Thanks for that! More questions though!

    I am reading that the sound on ipod touch 4 when on Facetime is poor. Can anyone let me know if they have similar problems? i really do not want to have to use a mic or earphones.

    Also, I read that to make a Facetime call from ipod touch4 , you use an email address to connect. If you are on a iphone 4, you use a phone number to connect. As my sister with an iphone 4 is thousands of miles away, she will not want to use a phone number! Can she use facetime on wifi too, or will I have to initiate all our Factime calls?

    Thanks for any advice!

    If you sister is on 4.1 firmware then you can FaceTime through email.
