    So I was around someone with an iPod touch and they were making phones calls with their iPod touch. How is this possible and if you can use your iPod touch as a phone what is the difference between the iPhone and iPod touch? Ha. There has to be a kick to it. There Is no way that tw iPod touch can be a phone

    I read somewhere there was an app that did that by whatever means but the iPod can't do it no way

    There are apps to do calls over the Internet a iPhone has a cellular radio and always has Internet If u plan on making calls with a iPod touch gotta have wifi since it doesn't have a cellular chip in it so that's why a iPod touch can do call but has to rely on a wifi signal

    If you live in a place where Wi-Fi is everywhere, you can use the iPod Touch as your main phone.

    Everything is the same, from the app store to the ringtones. When you tweet from an iPod Touch, it actually says via iPhone. The only difference between the iPod Touch and the iPhone is that the iPhone uses carriers, and the iPod Touch uses Wi-Fi.

    You can make and receive calls on your iPod Touch 4G.

    Just download free apps TextNow or Talkatone from the app store. You get a number.

    I have an iPod touch and I also use a clear wire hotspot so I am always in wifi. I also use the app talkatone with my google voice number. I can text and make calls with no problems. It is not quite like using the iPhone but really close.

    So can you use your iPod touch mobile hot spot anywhere? Why would apple make the iPod touch so close to the iPhone?

    A iPod touch does not have a mobile hot spot he has a clear wire hotspot that he connects his iPod to so he always has Internet

    He would have to have a mobile hot spot device that he has a Internet plan on with a internet provider so u would have to have Internet anyway that's why most people go with iPhone because u are carrying one device have only one battery to worry about and u would have a Internet plan on your phone anyway

    A Clear device is a very small black box you get that is internet and 4G for all your devices wherever you go. Laptops, tablets, and iPod Touches, and even XBOX's for you and your friends.

    I used it when I was in college.

    To me, it makes more sense to just have that than to pay for 3G on one iPhone with an expensive carrier. It's all around cheaper. And plus, I don't even have anyone to call really.

    About the retina display, Apple - iPod touch - Everything you see and do looks amazing.
    Apple - iPhone 4S - See everything clearly with the Retina display

    It's the exactly the same as the iPhone. Exactly.

    Maps work the same regardless if it's Wi-Fi or GPS, if I ask Vlingo, "Where is my house?" It will find me, perhaps even better than a GPS would.

    So, for people like me- who aren't in the wilderness, don't have many people to call, but live in the suburbs- a modern community where Wi-Fi is a-plenty, you can use an iPod Touch as your main phone. It works exactly the same.

    Wrong they are not the same screen do a little more research the iPhone 4 uses IPS technology get your facts straight first there both called retina display because there resolution and as far as clear wire vs a mobile carrier it's all about where u live clear wire is not widespread

    http://nexus404.com/Blog/2010/09/04/...%99s-slight-i/ I could prob find u 1000 other links that prove u are wrong about the screen and I do happen to go out into the woods and have gps apps that I cach maps on before I head out where there is no Internet with a iPod touch I would have no location available since it lacks a gps chip

    I bet you couldn't tell by looking at it though. Unless you were a diamond expert, I don't know anyone who could see the difference. You'd have to have a microscope. Apple's site says what it says- unless you're accusing them of deceptive marketing.

    iPod Touches aren't full fledged phones, but mobile phone is a part of it's description.

    It's a pretty obvious difference at side viewing angles and If you actually compare the specs between the to on Apples website u will see they are not the same they don't mention the contrast ratio anywhere on the iPod touches screen so how am I accusing apple of bad marketing get your head out of your *** sorry I have no patience arguing with somebody over a iPod touch screen when it's a known fact there are differences very small but they are there iPod's are a lot cheaper then iPhones no need to get snotty because my iPhones screen is a tad better then your touches screen my kid has a iPod touch 4g so I also know from first hand experience

    I see the difference. It's true, it's like 2%, that matters to people like me.



    I'd rather have the iPod Touch though- they say it's thinner while using less battery life. I would also buy an iPhone, but only unlocked because I don't want to pay carriers. I don't need to pay them.

    if u jailbreak the ipod then u can use accessories like apple peel, which allow u to add a sim card for the ipod making it a phone. u just download a messages and phone app.

    only drawback to this ive seen is no 3g(yet) only EDGE speeds. but if u have wifi at home and office.. not really an issue.

    can also use this to make an iphone dual sim.
