    Get a iPhone if you really want a phone so bad.

    You can fix that for $45, assuming your iPod is jailbroken.

    People have gotten VOIP to work on the iPod Touch; I'm not sure about Skype specifically however.

    We may see some sort of adapter someday that allows for a headset that can be used via Skype that will work with both the iPhone and Touch.

    The reason that I say this, is that while the data plan may be flat fee, actual talk calls cost in most cases. Skype would provide a nice alternative.

    The iPhone's built in speaker/mic may need to be bypassed for Skype to work.

    Edit: ^^ Looks like some alternatives are already starting to appear. Would expect more in the future.
