      this is really cool. i dont own a touch but still i cant believe it. so will this work over edge or only wifi? i mean i think wifi only since u proly need a lot of data flowing through this thing to make it work. will the software designed for ipod touch work for iphones too?

      I don't believe the iTouch has an Edge transceiver ..most likely only WiFi.

      It's really hard to inform yourself about the terms "SIP" and "VoIP", isn't it...?

      It's what you wish you would have gotten when you get the app and don't have the Touch Microphone


      Caveat as in Caveat Emptor (Let the buyer beware)

      I hope this is going to be a generic SIP client. I currently have softphone service that I use x-lite with - can't wait to test it out!

      I got the iVoice from Walmart working on 12/24/07. This means a mic that can be bought at Walmart for $25

      I'm not familiar with VIOP at all. does this type of technology allow for receiving calls as well?

      As long as you are connected to a wifi signal, and you are signed up to a voip service, you can make and receive calls.Read http://www.dslreports.com/faq/voip and click around the rest of the website, there is a lot of info and a good forum to ask questions about different providers and technical problems.
