When iPod touch 2G was announced to the public, many pessimists overly criticize the device thinking that it will always be “just” a wingman compare to iPhone. Rants coming out of nowhere saying iTouch – can’t call, can’t send an SMS message, no bluetooth etc. Why buy it?

My reply to these individuals? “How naive!”

In this article, I will teach you how to call using your iTouch via Skype. Send SMS (text-messages). Activate the bluetooth functionality of your iTouch 2G. No gimmicks,  just pure tutorial. So, shall we begin?

Let’s start transforming your iTouch to a “calling machine” via Skype. (Also works in the Philippines)

Skype’s iphone application release is nothing new to the techworld, but the Skype 1.1 release for iTouch is something that should be harnessed by any users who want to add a call-function to their iTouch gadget.

The how-to instructions:

External device you need: An iPhone earphone with microphone (see details) or any Apple supported headset w/ mic (see details).

1. You need to download the FREE skype application via app’s store using your iTouch

2. If you don’t have a skype account yet, you need to register first. (no need for email confirmation)

3. Bingo, once you complete the instructions above. You can start making a “test call”

4. Try making a search and add a buddy.

The REAL test:

1. Install another skype with a different account to another device (e.g. desktop, laptop, pda etc).

2. Search the username you used for your itouch skype account.

3. Make a call, if you made a “connection” with your iTouch. Congratulations!

Obviously you need to have an internet connection before you can use Skype and the person you are calling must have a Skype account too.

Let’s now transform your iTouch to a SMS messaging device. (Also works in the Philippines)

You don’t need any external device on this one. You can execute this by going to any popular online text-messaging websites. One of the most popular I know is chikka

The how-to instructions:

1. You need to create an account with chikka. (Don’t download their chikka package for it will work only in windows OS)

2. Send a message by keying in the number. (If you live in the Philippines start the number with this sequence: “639xxxxxxxxx”)

3. Press the send button :D and bingo! your message is sent.

4. Step 4? there’s no step four, it’s as easy as that!

Disadvantages:

1. Chikka only allows you to send 3 SMS message per day. So how do you by-pass this limit?

After you send a message to a person and chikka prompts you to save that number to your list. Cancel it out. Very easy ayt?

2.  You also need to have an internet connection to perform all the instructions said above.

Alternative:

You can use other website that provide SMS messaging capability like callwave,  (though I haven’t tried it) or Yahoo! messenger’s “I’m mobile” feature though you need your buddy to have a registered Yahoo! I’m mobile account to execute this one flawlessly.

How to install Bluetooth functionality in iPod touch 2G?

Newbie users thought that their iTouch has no bluetooth at all, big APPLE just made that function INACTIVE so when the iTouch 3.0 firmware has finally surfaced (for a $9.99 download) It will be Christmas again for all apple employees!

No need for any external devices on this one.

The how-to-instructions:

1. Download the latest iPod Touch 3.0 firmware on Apple’s official site ($9.99 download)

2. Follow the easy instructions on installing the firmware to your iTouch (don’t worry it’s not like “unlocking” and “BRICKING” your itouch which means permanently damaging your device” is impossible :) )

3. (Usually the duration of  installation is roughly around 10-15 minutes) When it’s finished, your fresh iTouch 3.0 has a Bluetooth application already installed. How sweet is that?

Disadvantages:

1. You need to pay for 10 bucks to get this firmware. The alternative? see this website (I tried it and it works perfectly). Just follow the instructions.

I am hearing rumors that the next iTouch 3rd generation will have a built-in camera module! Hmm? Are we still talking about iTouch or what? This is totally an awesome news! I just hope that, the users who already had their iTouch 2G can make a swap with the next iTouch 3G. Just like what apple did to iPhone 2G users when the iPhone 3G was released.cool latest new high tech mobile cell phone gadgets camera thumb How to convert iTouch to iPhone?

With all of these amazing updates, who can say that iTouch is just a “wingman” of iPhone now? I fairly consider iTouch as a twin and not an “ugly” version of iPhone.
