answer calls on ipod touch w/ skype?

my business relies on my cell phone. i always keep the business lines transferred to my cell phone all day. but my cell phone sucks inside my house...i will eventually get a land line if need be...im curious about skype tho...

i have a new ipod touch...its sick! the browser on the touch is much faster then my dam laptop!!

i have wireless in mi casa, obviously...

my wireless > cell phone signal so the thought to utilize skype voip is logical?!

i get a skype number, forward my business calls to my skype number at night, i will answer the phone via my ipod touch?!

thoughts??

The iPod touch is missing a crucial piece of hardware thats going to prevent you from using skype as a phone. It doesnt have a microphone.


However there are some aftermarket stuff coming out, or out now I think, thats trying to bypass that little problem.

Get some microphone headphones and obtain google voice. I believe you have to be jailbroken to use google voice but it works almost like a iPhone. They even provide you with a number and unlimited texting.
