    I live in the US and am about to go abroad for school to Australia for a year. I am trying to figure out if an iTouch would still work over there.

    Also, is it possible to buy a data plan to get on a network for the iTouch so you can get the internet when outside a hot spot?

    It'll work fine in Australia.

    But you can't get on a network or get a plan for your iPod touch, that's what the iPhone is for.

    It'll just work like a regular iPod touch would but in Australia.

    I just don't want to get an iPhone because I'm assuming that would not be transferable from country to country as I'd want a local number in each respective country. Or am I mistaken? Could I get it reset on Telstra once in Australia?

    You would have to get a 1st or 2nd gen iPhone , and unlock it. (Or wait for the 3G unlock)

    You could then swap in SIMs for different carriers to your liking.
