    No,
    The ipod touch has no bluetooth nor is there a cable to do such.

    The problem with adding Bluetooth to the Touch right now is that in order to do it (with a dongle like Gear4's BlueStream) the Touch would have to have a Bluetooth stack that supports DUN. It doesn't. The dongle could upload a bluetooth stack to the Touch (like it does to other iPods) but it would need to be written specifically for the Touch, which won't be possible until the SDK arrives.

    This is why there are no accessories for the Touch that have built-in software (like FM tuners and such).

    You actually don't need bluetooth for what you're describing.

    He's thinking about using his RAZR as a modem.

    It's possible with the computer, but not the touch. I've tested it.

    ...which requires the Bluetooth DUN profile, does it not?

    I'm not quite sure that you need Bluetooth if you aren't utilizing Bluetooth technology.

    Actually what I do is use a Treo that has unlimited internet and connect it to My PowerBook. Then make a wireless network with my PowerBook and use it to access WiFi on my touch.

    Works great, but would be nicer if the iTouch had builtin bluetooth.

    I actually believe that it does, as there is one chip that no one can distinguish, that chip is deactivated. Also in the early days of the iTouch some of the iTouches came with a special OS that displays if certain things are working correctly, Bluetooth was disabled. Apple probably doesn't have the FCC rights to use it yet.
