I-pod touch vs. I-phone


Gatores

Question

Does the I-pod touch do everything that an I-phone can do other then make phone calls? I was wanting to get one or the other, but dont know which one to get. I am not wanting it to make phone calls with. My friend bought an I-phone, but didnt hook it up for phone service just for mobile internet and email.

Thanks

Rick

Essentially - yes. The iPod Touch will only work on Wi-Fi, whereas the iPhone will also work with mobile wireless from AT&T. I have an iPod Touch and absolutely love it. I work at a University and instead of toting my laptop around for lunch and things like that - I use my iPod Touch. It is truly awesome.

Oh, and one more thing - the app called "iFart" is pure, unadulterated Genius....

Another difference is that there is no microphone on the itouch. With some apps you need one. There is one app called hot girl or something like that, where you blow into the mic, her skirt blows up. I am sure you can live without that.

Ipod touch doesn't have a mic built in, but you can buy one for making skype calls. No cellular data or voice. No camera. It also doesn't have GPS, just maps.

When you are saying "apps" what is that? Is that something you download for free or is there like a monthly fee? Im not sure what these apps are.

"apps" are aplications that are available from apple. Some are free, most cost $. You can find everything including games, books, restaurant finders, pretty much anything. Once you pay for them, they are yours. Alot of them are 99 cents.

Immediately get app sniper, it automatically finds all the apps that are on sale, most from .99 to free for a couple days. I check that every day and download a bunch then delete them if I don't like them.

setterguy is right on, app sniper is a nice tool. Also check out an App called sound grenade, it's a real high pitch noise some people can hear some can't, but it's fun to turn on in social settings.

Also try jailbreaking, there are a lot of non-apple approved apps out there that are pretty neat and useful.

Also, go with the iphone, money better spent IMHO.

I have an itouch and I love it.

Personally I wish I had an iphone so I could use the internet on the touch when ever I wanted "in service" rather than just on wifi. I am not on ATT so I would've had to buy an unlocked phone or do it myself. I'm not into that stuff so I still carry my regular phone with internet installed.

If you want both features get the phone.

Man, I have come to love the Iphone. wink The 3g download speed of AT&T is very fast. The upload speed is not that bad also (images). I have had an Iphone for about two months and have it on me every minute of the day. The touch screen thing is no prob. I even can type faster than I could on my old "click" phone. I am a typing wise now grin

I got a new lap top last fall and that sits idle now. My Iphone (after a short learning curve) is what I use now. This message was sent via Iphone, just as fast as I could with my laptop.

I heard Verizon is getting the Iphone very soon. Down side to AT&T is the no coverage at LOW. I heard the "jailbreak" could solve this also. I figure when the time is right and I feel the urge, I will unlock my phone and see what this puppy can do. I am waiting to see what a major update that is coming out soon has to offer.

IPhone all the way though.

Yep you are correct Will. I over heard the Iphone and Verizon the other day, with coming out soon(er) than expected. I check into the source I heard this from and it was about the new phone called Pink. A very close version of the Iphone from Microsoft.

If you want to learn more, search MS's website for "Microsoft, Verizon, and Codename Pink"

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year.

      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.

      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.
    • Hookmaster
      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.
    • MikeG3Boat
      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.
    • MikeG3Boat
      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.
    • Shulsebus
      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
