    I'm thinking about getting an iPod Touch for Christmas and had some questions.

    1. On the "100 Things..." Thread, it said you could use your Touch as an Alarm.
    I thought the only way to hear sound from your Touch was through headphones?
    Or does the Alarm do something different to wake you up....

    2. Are there no monthly fees, or in other words, once you purchase the iPod Touch, you can use all of its apps through free wi-fi, right?

    3.There's no possible way to hack the Touch to use it as a phone? But, you can use IM?

    4. If there is IM, is it free to use?

    5. I'm getting the 8 GB; how many apps, videos, and songs can that hold compared to the 16 GB?

    6. If I have Fight Club on DVD, I can transfer the movie to my Touch?

    7. Say I drop my Touch in the pool... Am I screwed, or is the Touch maybe water-proof and/or I can return it?

    Thanks in advance to the lady/gentleman who answers these beginner questions that have probably already been answered numerous times.

    1) it makes a sound through the speaker that does the clicker sound, therefore does not need headphones

    2) Yup

    *Sigh*

    ... I want my iPod Touch, NOW!

    Thanks for answering my questions, Collateral.

    I'm now 95% positive that I'm going to get this.
    I'm leaving a 5% chance to that I get too excited about getting a Touch that I don't want it anymore.
    Happens a lot to me with other various products.

    LMAO!!! in fact true. The iPod touch is so worth buying, and plus jailbreak=god!!! You can do a crap load more, and the Jailbreak process is super easy. So yea, and also get the warranty if you think you can't get another one.

    The touch with a jailbreak is a great investment. It's been a long time since I've been excited by electronics but the Touch did it. You'll love it.

    Have fun.

    Thanks for welcoming me in.

    I'm just worried that I won't be able to wait long enough.
    Doesn't anyone else experience this - where you wait forever for an item and find out you don't want it anymore.
    It must have a name.
    (I'll try and meditate every day; channeling my thoughts on the Touch.)

    LOL I hate that feeling. But its not like this with the touch. I felt that for a while before i got it, but when it finnaly arrived at my door, I was hyped. It is the most PHENOMINAL ipod ever invented. Cheers for Apple.

    Yeah I know what you mean. I ordered my touch and I'd come home each day to see if it got there, but it wasn't there. Until finally, it came Oct. 1 !.

    best pda+

    Cowboyz, I can't see your interest waning for the ipod touch, especially if you don't have a great pda. If anything, it'll be the opposite. The ipod touch has so many cool 3rd party apps available that it's really the best multi-device/pda that'll fit in your pants pocket.

    As for your 5th question, an 8 gb will hold a lot, but if you can afford it and want to keep lots of video or movies on it, get the 16 gb. I did and have: 600+ songs, 80+ very short (1-5 minutes) videos & 2800+ pics, with 8.7 gb still available. You can add well over 10+ new apps (they don't take up much memory) once it's jailbroken.
