    Well skype has a app out for some mobile phones so I think it could be done for the itouch/iphone.

    Well, maybe for the iPhone, but the iPod touch does not have a microphone.

    You most likely won't get anywhere on official skype forum because they cannot condone/support "illegal" jail breaking. When the official SDK comes out in Feburary, _MAYBE_ they'll revise the idea and develop an official client for it... until then, it's just third party apps and waiting game.

    I would think someone could port the mobile version of skype into iTouch compatible.

    I'm using http://www.shapeservices.com/en/products/details.php?product=skype&platform=iphone

    its web based, but supports everything that skype does, so once we get a mic for our itouch, then we will be able to use this thing as a phone with skype pro service, infact, I just called my home phone from my itouch, it worked, couldn't talk to my self because I have no mic on the itouch.

    It let me call a real phone because when you make a skype account the first call is free, so to test it more I have to keep making free skype accounts, lol. My mom picked up the phone so I'm going to test again later and see if at least the voice from the phone Iam calling comes into my itouch, because I didn't have my ear buds pluged in before.
