    Do you think it's possible to turn the iPod Touch into a home phone given that there's now a few VoIP and free text apps.

    would this work?

    1. set up a home wifi.
    2. download a VoIP and unlimited free text apps.
    3. Make phone calls and text people over your home wifi.
    4. Get Google Voice and it'll even have call waiting. right?

    :eek:

    It should work -- if you don't mind wearing a headset during your calls. I don't think the Touch's speakers are good enough for a phone conversation. Plus, I'm not sure how it'll work with receiving incoming calls. But yeah, the technology is there to sidestep those telephone companies altogether. :D

    Like the above poster said, it SHOULD work.

    But incoming calls won't work....unless you keep that app open all the time. Which you basically just paid $200 for an expensive cordless.
