    I see that you can get a microphone with it, and you can get Skype on the Ipod touch, so it seems completely possible to be able to make calls from your Ipod touch from any wifi hotspot. Anyone have any luck at all with this? I'd kinda like to hear some stories of success before I fork out 30 dollars for the Skype account, and 50 bucks for the microphone. Thanks all

    If you are on 1.1.4 you could just use SIP-Voip.

    it's called voip, and it's pointless if u gonna spend $80 on a mic and an account, just splash out a bit more and buy the real Thing

    instead of spending $50 on a touchmods mic. just go to walmart and buy an iVoiceIII, then mod it. the tutorial is on the touchmods site. im waiting for voip to come out on 2.0

    I have 2.0, and I would like to keep it if possible, what exactly is voip anyway? Won't I need a mic anyway for that?

    so you can make free calls from your Ipod touch with this? Sounds a little too good to be true.

    well, I checked Walmart, Target, and Staples, and none of them had it. Darn small town stores. I did however, find this one on ebay, but it doesn't say that it's supported by the Ipod Touch. Anyone know if it would work? http://cgi.ebay.com/NIP-iVoice-III-...hash=item150274118887&_trksid=p3286.m14.l1318
