    A mobile broadband USB dongle (aka "internet stick") with a dock connector? Highly unlikely.

    I hate it whaen people say that. Its not as easy as going to the store and getting an iPhone. What about the ridiculously expensive plan that you need?

    That is the POINT of the iPhone. The Data Plan. The 3G chip is not just used for Cellular calls, its for Data also. Nigh-broadband speed data might I add. If you want to stay connected to the internet, you get an iPhone. Or any other 3G enabled device.

    If you were to get "Mobile Broadband" for the iPod Touch, you'd still be paying an expensive Data plan also, if it were even remotely possible.

    I wasn't being sarcastic at all. I am serious. If you want mobile broadband, either (A) Get a Laptop with a 3G card and set that up as an access point for your iPod Touch (B) Get an iPhone. No sarcasm there. If you seriously want to be connected to the internet wherever you want to go, that is your option. Or, if you want to dream as you say, build a nationwide Wireless network. Good luck finding the funds for that.

    You have no read any of my other responses at all. Or if you have, you chose to ignore the posts where I help people. I do not post for the sake of post count. I post for the sake of helping. If post count were disabled or if mine were reset, I'd still go around posting.

    Again, everything you've mentioned, is already there. In the iPhone. You may not know this, but cellular services are no different from VOIP, which is what Skype is.

    Technically, with enough time and effort it could be done. But that comes down to someone spending hours and hours to make a cable and the actual app. That's the unlikely part. Not to mention you would be adding a lot of crap to your device. It's easy to just throw in your pocket now, but adding a cable and the air card would make it annoying.

    Just set up an ad-hoc network for the aircard, or stick to hotspots.

    $840/yr to use an iphone is a no go for me. At least not while I am a college student. I do not and will not spend so much of my time on the internet--most of the time spent is just for fun and time wasting (like now).

    Currently paying $600/yr for a family plan with 3 other members.
