    I was just wondering if it will be possible to successfully run icall on the ipod touch. since ipod touch can run the same apps the only issue in the way is whether the ipod touch will be able to recognize a microphone input

    i realize this is a repost, the original didn't get any responses so i post in a new section

    There is no mic input, and Apple would never allow that to happen.

    There's already a ton of information about how to mod up existing iPod mics to work with the touch. People had VoIP working on the touch before the App store launched. I can't see why Apple would care if you used VoIP on your iPod. They don't get monthly payments from ATT anymore, so they likely make the same profit on an iPhone and iPod touch sale, and they make the same amount from an App sale for either.

    And that makes sense and all, but I just don't see Apple doing anything like that.

    Apple usually takes a backseat on things like this.

    It's in a gray area for a lot of people. Downside to adding a mic to the Touch is it can be considered "breaking" the iPod, and causing you to not get serviced by Apple.

    Also, in my opinion, I feel that Apple should care if mics are put on the iPod Touch. It draws them way from AT&T, and Apple loses that little bit of money from the iPhone sale.

    But that's me...

    I personally agree that the Touch should have VoIP support and Apple should at least look into a mic for the Touch.

    Yeah, don't misunderstand me in thinking that Apple won't offer this: I want them to, and I think they should! I'm just not very optimistic about it.

    I'm fairly sure that the headphone jacks are different. No evidence to back that up, but it's an intriguing idea. It sounds like the kind of thing that someone has already tried (surely) without success.

    Any of y'all iPhone/Touch owners given this a try?

    I have an iPhone and Touch. I'd be willing to give it a try. The iPhone earbuds will work as regular earbuds, but I don't know about recording sound. I'm installing requall to see if it works. I'll edit with results.

    EDIT: Okay. requall is messed up. I used Jott instead. MAJOR FAIL.

    Jott-asploded. Yeah. *cough*

    EDIT2: Okay. Major no-no. I just had to reboot my iPod because it crashed. Yikes.
