I am sure that this is come up here, but I am just wondering is (or has) here used an iPod Touch along with Google Voice (or some other VoIP system) to use an iPod Touch as an iPhone? I'll be honest here, it's not that I can't afford an iPhone, I just think that my money can be better spent on other things. A $40 month voice plan along with a $30 data plan is $70 a month; and that's not even counting texting or fees and taxes. Plus, if you multiply $70 times 24 (for a two year contract) that equals $1,680, plus the taxes, the fees, and the texts. I just can't see the justification for spending that much money on one phone. Then a buddy of mine sent me this CNN article and I was VERY intrigued to say the least. I have a Google Voice number, and I just found out that I can port (transfer) over my current cell number to Google for a one time fee of $20 (not bad deal at all BTW), that why I won't loss it. Nor will I have to give all of my friends my new number. I have wifi at home and at my work, so I would only need a MiFi when i am out and about. I live in a pretty build up area, so going with Sprint shouldn't be a problem (hopefully). I like the Virgin Mobile plan because it's unlimited data and it's contract free. So is anyone here using an iPod Touch along with Google Voice to get most of the features of an iPhone at a fraction of a cost? If so, what's your take on it. The only issue I've found is the battery life on the MiFI is only 2 to 4 hours on the standard battery. They do make extended batteries with 3x time power, which would give me 6 to 12 hours, which is more than enough for me. P.S. With Google Voice, if the app isn't open, will I still get an indication that I am receiving a call?
