    I have recently bought the earphones and mic for my iPod Touch so I can use Truphone and Midomi etc.

    I saw that users of the Google Mobile Application could search Google with their voice, so I downloaded the app to test it. I went into the setting and saw the box that enabled/disabled the voice search, but even though I had a mic on my iPod Touch, it said iPhones only

    Is there a way I can bypass this or does my iPod have to be jailbroken?

    Thanks, Alex
