it would be cool...
How can you have a data plan for the iPod touch?
Note, it does not have cell phone reception.
As for WiFi, any WiFi plan will work just like a laptop.
I guess your'e the person that always says no to everything LOLOL
It starts with a dream homie.
If you really want something you'll find a way...
I didn't know WiFi is a plan...
Yeah, it's called an iPhone.
You need some kind of cellular service for it to be feasible ...
I guess I wasn't clear enough. So let me give it another go.
Cell phones allow data transmission over cellular networks.
Cell phones have data plans.
The iPod touch cannot receive or transmit over cellular networks, and thus cannot use a data plan.
So no matter how much you want your current iPod touch to have and use a data plan, it will not happen.
Now in the future, it is possible that an iPod touch would have cell data reception and transmission. Not likely but it is a possibility. Right now I doubt Apple would do this as it would cut into iPhone sales.
Did I ever said I want my iPod to work with data right now?
I'm just pondering on the idea, you're just talking too much now homie.
On the original post I even say "IT WOULD BE COOL"
I work here at AT&T so I know a thing or two about phones.
You definitely inferred it. That much is certain.
After reading this, your credibility just went down the you know what.
BTW, not a homie.
ya know.......its more feasible that ATT allows one to not have a voice plan with their iphone than it is to have the touch get a data plan
You know, that's just what I was thinking. And an iPhone without voice is still better than an iPod touch, because it has the GPS and camera.
New iPod should get a camera
I'm not here for credibility, I'm here to share ideas and discuss it.
I'd be thrilled to just do a simple file transfer from a Mac via bluetooth.....
Being from Blightly I've never dealt with AT&T, but I can't believe they'd take on someone with such shoddy English.
Just my 2p.
You work at AT&T, know a thing or two about phones, and you don't know what wi-fi is? "wi-fi is a plan" what is that supposed to mean?
They could do WiMAX......... I don't think those chips are too much larger than normal wifi chips. Thus you could have a data plan AND higher storage capacity.
i think if you want an iPod Touch with a data plan then you should just get an iPhone.
An iPod touch with a data plan is called an iPhone, have you heard of it?
You have said 'Homie' twice now, and i would like you to die.
Want a Data Plan? buy an iPhone
Well, to be fair to the OP (despite his/her attitude), I think what he's talking about is a touch-like netbook-type device ... eg an iPod Touch with an EVDO connection but no cellphone radio. Like what the Kindle has.
A generation or two down the line, we'll likely have (an attempt at) ubiquitous wireless connection in iPods.
LOL What's wrong with saying homie, man people are so sensitive these days.
What's the big deal in just having data on ipod Touch without wanting a phone?
OMFG!!!111!! That's like to bestest idea EVER!
Buy a MiFi from Verizon. There's your data.
I thought about this but the rates are a bit much. It would be nice if the mobile broadband users were given the same rates as those with a cell plan
If Apple turned the iPod Touch into something resembling a kindle in terms of having a free/cheap cell data connection (NOT the ebook portion) then I think Apple would have a definite winner. Kinda funny since I've been saying the iPod Touch needs a data connection forever it seems like now.
Heck either you paid more for the device but didn't have a monthly fee (certain restrictions on GB/month would apply) or pay something like $10 a month (again with a small GB cap) or opt for $30 for "unlimited".
here is a dream for you, Apple puts up far range wifi towers that act like cell towers but send out a wifi signal and only iPod touches and iPhones can get on that wifi signal that would be pretty freakin epic. you could have wifi almost everywhere you go!!
