Turn Your iPod Touch into an iPhone
The iPod Touch is a snazzy device, which is nearly the exact same as an iPhone - except it can't make calls.
Now, using SIP-VoIP and a Touchmod Mic, you can rectify that issue. For under $50, you get the mic, and you can also get a mic/headset for around $60.
This makes it easy if you already have a cell phone, and/or are always around WiFi!
You may remember, Touchmod launched SIP VoIP back in January, but they've now apparently found a commercial vendor of the mic they were working on.
Nice job, guys!

I'm sorry I can't get over the fact that the guy is like 12 years old

Hahaha yeah, I got a little thrown off at a 12-13 year old kid doing a better tech demo video than most adults I see on YouTube.
Good going, kid. This is going to add a lot of value to the touch once its stabilized as a VoIP phone.

My question is that lets say if you make a call, on the other phone what does it say under the caller id, and do you have to pay monthly?

yes the program is old but the point of the post was to show the microphone____wait for it ..... nevermind
04-15-2008, 10:27 PM #17
that is sweet but you will need to be near a router to get this to work, or just buy a cantenna =) a jumbo cantenna, naa then everyone will start attacking your network

It's nice and all but the mic is still $50.
However, without the mic you can call people but not talk, only listen.I am Olim. We are Olim. And we just did this- together!

What's the point when you can only use this with Wi-fi, it's $50 for a mic, it has lag, and it's got an ugly dongle on the bottom of it? Just get an iPhone and you won't have to deal with all this. :P
