    Skype on Fring works on iTouch. Download Fring from iTunes App store, under "social networking" apps. Free app. No jailbreaking required. Works on G1 and G2 Touch. All you need for G1 is a microphone that connects through the doc. Touchmods seesm to be the most readily available and reliable.

    There is a "Sykpe OUt" button and a dial pad to make calls. I have called several numbers on my contact list and connected and heard people speaking. If anyone could test this app with a microphone and confirm that you can speak and be heard on on the other end, I would appreciate it, as I do not have a microphone yet.

    I own two Touchmods mics. Unfortunately, they don't work under 2.0 firmware.

    The last thing I'd call Touchmods is "reliable." They've completely dropped the ball on supporting their mic under 2.0, and all their leader (Marian) seems interested in doing is arguing with people who visit his blog.

    I feel like a fool for having donated nearly $100 to their "team" to support their reasearch and development.

    Touchmods microphone

    The touchmods microphone just does not work with v.2.1. I have called several numbers on my fring contact list and the same as you I get connected and heard people answering the call. I've tested this app with the micophone and I can confirm that you cannot speak or heard on the other end. It's a shame really. I've tried many ways just to get it working, I've jailbroken my ipod and still does not work. It's very frustrating.

    Ignorant morons use "iTouch" instead of what it really is "iPod Touch". I see this in reviews as well. All over the damn interwebz and it pisses me off. It's an iPod Touch NOT iTouch! Get it? Good.

    I love this headset. it works very good. I don't have skypein though. So I don't know if it works with Skypein. I want to sign up for it, but I want to be sure I'll be able to talk on it.
