    I need a mic that will plug into the USB port, which will still let me use the built-in speakers.

    I bought one of the new apple ear buds with mic built in. Cheap and works.

    I thought the USB port on the touch was not accessible to applications?

    You can use the built in speaker with the apple ones plugged in in some applications. I know skype does this on speaker phone along with Sonic Vox

    Apple is releasing that with 3.0 in June.

    The only mike I found at Macally is this.
    http://www.macally.com/EN/Product/ArticleShow.asp?ArticleID=171

    It says it works with iPod 5G, iPod nano 2G and iPod classic -- doesn't say it works with ipod touch or iPhone.

    Why do you need to use the ipod Touch's built-in speakers, instead of hooking up external speakers through a microphone adapter?

    I like to use the builtin ones because I can just hold it and talk without unconfirtable earphones falling out

    I'm using a Gen2 IPT w/ Fring.
    This mic works, sorta. My main purpose to buying the iVoiceIII was for VOIP. I wanted to be able to use the internal speaker in conjunction with the iVOiceIII mic, to simulate a phone. Using Fring in a test call it works flawlessly. Woo hoo just like a phone. Here's the problem I'm having, feedback. When I try to place a call to an outside number I get noting but feedback. I suppose if I plugged in headphone to the iVoiceIII it would take care of the feedback, but that defeats my purpose. I'll keep tinkering with it:confused:, if anyone has any ideas please drop a post.

    What's with the bolded statements and many exclamations marks with an angry face?

    There is no need for that, it is considered rude to do that. Now, if you need a microphone for your iPod Touch, then I suggest you visit this: http://tinyurl.com/cl6bg7
