    Probably skype would be the best except you need a microhpone to plug into your iPod or you can't make calls...Just go to the app store and search "Skype" and download. It is free.

    no. i got earphones only. no mic or headset. it is the itouch not the phone one though. i have dloaded skype so was wondring if one mic make worked better than another make with the touch. no point in buying something that isn't good so thought i would ask.
    Thanks
