    I want to use my 8 GB 3G as a Skype phone but and thoroughly confused about microphones/headsets. I have seen no advertised ones that say they are compatible with a 3G 8GB Itouch. Most ads say 32/64 GB 2G or 3G. Even the overpriced ones that Apple sells in their store only say 2G for Itouch. I understand that that the four rings on the plug (left ear, right ear, gnd and mic) have to line up, but can't tell which ones will.

    I would appreciate some clarification on this.

    the 8GB doesn't come with one, but you can look on eBay/Amazon/Craiglist for one. the 32 and 64gb come w/ a mic tho...

    I don't understand this response. I know the 8 Gb doesn't have a mic. That's why I posted the message. I don't have a 32 or 64, so it its irrelevant. I've already said that none of the advertised ones specify 8 Gb.

    So what exactly is it that you are trying to say?

    He is trying to say that the 32GB and 64GB models come with headphones that have built-in microphones but the 8GB only comes with the ordinary ones. However, if you buy the over priced ones from Apple hey will work with the 8GB. Hope this helps.
