I will be getting one of these as a late birthday present from my uncle in a few days. I requested it, mainly because I needed another iPod anyway, so I might as well get this. Any iPod Touch owners here? I guess the only thing is that if I'm outside of my house or any other wifi spot, I won't be able to get internet, which would be cool to have all the time, but I like my phone, and don't need the expensive iPhone. On the other hand, is there any way to get internet access like there is on the iPhone (even if you have to pay a fee)?

Also, has anyone tried NBA league pass mobile? Again, kind of useless if you're outside of a usable wireless zone.

if i were you, i would invest my time in learning how to jailbreak it. it can do so much for you. you can download app's w/o paying, league pass free & such. i like the battery life too. the only thing that annoys me is if im playing bejeweled lying down on my bed, and i am playing it sideways, and its titled by a LITTLE bit, it 'll go bak to vertical. then if i play vertical, it'll go to horizontal and etc. not a big deal, but kind of annoying when im lying down just to play games and that keeps on happening.

Ipod Touch is just awesome. Great games, videos, utilities that are just useful. Just jailbreak it and you have pretty much any app you want. There is still a lot of stuff you can do without the wifi, but having it all the time would be killer. I have the league pass mobile too. It's great to watch almost all the games. It has good quality, replay, highlights, pause, rewind, scoreboard, and stats. One thing though, you can't watch locally broadcasted games or I think even nationally televised ones. I think it's in a contract or something so it doesn't take away viewers, so if you are in the LA area (where Laker games are locally shown) the game will be blocked out.

I'm using my iTouch right now in the airport. I love it.

There is no way to get internet on it without a wi-fi source. They also don't have internet services for it like an iPhone does.

Interesting...I don't like that they are making you buy the 32 GB model, though, to get the extra features and faster processor (i.e. 8 GB 3rd generation is essentially a 2nd gen). Does anyone know if the extra processing speed on the 32 GB 3rd gen. is worth $100 more than the 8 GB 3rd gen?

Yeah, but it's not even that much if you pay for it. League Pass Mobile is something like $39.99 otherwise....Just have to be in WiFi proximity.

That's really too bad...I would pay $30-40 a month EASY for internet services...Just haven't heard good things about the iPhone (i.e. dropped calls, etc.)

I think most people don't think 3rd gen makes that big of a difference. 8gb 3rd gen is pretty much the same 2nd gen. I got a 16 gig 2nd gen from ebay for $170. They are expensive (pretty much the only negative), but if you want you can get a refurb one from the apple store website. It gives the same 1 year warranty.

I have the OG touch 16GB it's cool but I don't really use it anymore.

I have an iPhone. I've had zero problems with it(it's even refurbed).

Its cool, i used to have one and whenever i wasn't around a wi-fi hot spot it sucked cuz it was basically just a video ipod. But there are tons of games that can be used offline so thats good. Plus if u are ever around a fellow Palm Pre user like myself we can put out a wifi tethering signal for ya to use for free ;)
