Is it possible? Just wondering
i think if that were possible, it would singlehandedly render the iPhone as useless. Who would ever buy another iPhone again, especially with AT&T? haha
but i agree that would be ridiculously nice if someone could pull that off....
3G would be even better
Not unless you can find a way to put a cellular modem into the device.
Maybe an attachment that plugs in the port at the bottom?
Get a phone with Edge/3G which can somehow share its Edge/3G connection through Wifi to the iTouch?
All that just to get EDGEE of the touch? Might as well get in iPhone in that case.
Apples not that stupid.
I can see why the user has asked this, if you install services.app or bossprefs it will show bluetooth and edge and by default edge will say on........ I think this is just apple being lazy and not removing iphone junk from an ipod firnmware
Oh well I didn't know it had something to do with the cell phone part of the iPhone, I thought it was just exclusivle to the iPhone
The iPhone and the iPod Touch use the same exact firmware. The firmware just disables functionality based on what hardware is detected (no bluetooth, no edge, disable some apps, etc.).
this dosent seem hard in any way (if you are a programmer, or engineer). You could design a small antenna that fits into the bottom usb port, and when you are in a location with an EDGE or 3G signal (which is almost everywhere I think), you could just tether onto that signal. I dont know how cell phone signals work but wouldnt it be pretty easy, i mean, if you can get wi-fi from your house, shouldnt you be able to pick up another signal in the air, from another antenna on your iPod?
And, is it possible to get free 3G or EDGE on an iPhone by any chance???
cuz that would be easier than making an antenna for the iPod Touch.
Totally possible if you have a windows media smartphone/pocketPC with wifi and data plan. I do it everyday using my AT&T tilt. www.wifirouter.com Turns your windows mobile device into an ad hok wireless router. This is the third time I posted about this today. I'm surprised more people on these forums don't know about this.
I was about to drop a buncha money on an iphone before I found this slick little app. Its really the best of both worlds.
