Re: how to make call and send sms from i-touch ?

hi
As you know with the iPod Touch you have full access to any web page, , so you can access your e-mail account as normal, So Its easy and of course free to you to send sms .

* First you need someones full phone number, with area code like so 912111234

* Second you need to go to your e-mail page like Gmail or Yahoo and hit compose, in the ?TO:? area type in the persons phone number with the following after the number, @teleflip.com

Sample: 9123331234@teleflip.com

* Third type an e-mail like normal but keep it as simple as possible, remember they are reading this on their phone they don?t care to read a book!

* Then hit send! That simple!

When you send the e-mail Teleflip automatically converts the e-mail to a SMS and sends it to the phone, remember that person is charged their normal texting rates.

hi

try this
1) Add sources list to the installer app. You can manually update this, download Touchmod SIP VOIP app
2)Now click on the green Touchmods logo that will appear on your iPod?s springboard.
3)After you enter the details for your SIP VoIP account, push the ?Save? button. Done. You successfully converted your ipod Touch into a VOIP Phone.

Touchmods are planning to sell the microphones for Ipod Touch. Hopefully they are out soon. Touchmod is however a freeware.

Re: how to make call and send sms from i-touch ?

VoIP has changed the way people communicate across the world. Now one doesn't have to pay hefty money to their service provider to make international calls. All you need is an internet connection and a proper Voice Over IP (VoIP) application/software and you are good to go.

iPod touch 2G has a headphone jack that can be used with the headphone that has a microphone. There are plenty of other iPod touch mic out there that you can buy such as iTalk and Griffin Microphone. If you want you can also Create Your Own iPod Touch Microphone.

The new Truphone for the iPod Touch application works on the 2nd generation iPod Touch and enables you to make free calls to other Truphone or Google Talk users from any Wi-Fi zone, using your iPod Touch's internet connection and a headphone with mic, or mic adapter.

the application lets you call not only other iPod touch owners but also users of Truphone?s Internet telephony service and your Google Talk friends. (I am not a huge fan of GTalk, but that?s another story). Upcoming features include calling to landlines (at a cost, bummer), IM/call capability for Skype and MSN users and additional facilities for interacting with Twitter and Facebook, two of the social networking hotspots on the Internet.Download the Truphone for iPod touch.

Now if you combine this truephone with other VoIP or SIP, you can actually make free calls to almost any VoIP or SIP phones.

Re: how to make call and send sms from i-touch ?

hi
You Need

1. A jailbroken iPod touch

2. Install SIP-VoIP

Method 1 - Install SIP-VoIP with Installer.app: First, since SIP-VoIP isn't found in Installer.app by default, you need to add the Touchmods repository to Installer. To do so, launch Installer and head to the Sources tab. Now tap Edit -> Add, and type http://touchmods.net/rep.xml into the Add Source dialog. Hit OK, and Installer will refresh your sources, this time including your new Touchmods repository.

Now go to the Install tab and find the entry labeled Touchmods. Inside you'll see an app called Touchmods SIP-VoIP. Go ahead and install SIP-VoIP by tapping the entry, tapping the install button, and then verifying that you want to install this application from an "untrusted" source.

This is by far the easiest method for installing SIP-VoIP, but I had trouble with the latest version of SIP-VoIP (version 1.2) on my iPod touch, so I had to install a previous version (1.1). Since you can only install the latest with Installer, I'll also demonstrate how to install older versions of SIP-VoIP. I'd recommend trying it the easy way first, then moving to the following method if you have trouble. If you're taking the easy route the first time around, skip to the Set Up an SIP Account section below.

Method 2 - Install SIP-VoIP over SSH: To install previous versions of SIP-VoIP, you'll need to first install OpenSSH through Installer.app (you can find it under Install -> System). Now you'll need to connect to your iPod using a desktop FTP client that supports SFTP connections (like FileZilla for Windows or Cyberduck for OS X). This will allow you to browse and copy files to your iPod like you would if you could access the disk as an external hard drive on your computer.

To connect to your device from your computer, you'll need to know your iPod touch's or iPhone's IP address. You can find this by opening the Settings app, tapping Wi-Fi, and then tapping the blue arrow next to the network you're connected to.

Now that you've got that, start up your FTP client of choice, enter the IP address as you server, and use root for your username and alpine as your password. Once connected, navigate to the Applications folder (just above the root folder). That's where your iPhone and iPod touch keep all of their applications. From here it's a simple matter of dragging and dropping the appropriate SIP-VoIP app to the applications folder.
you can use 1.1 version of SIP-VoIP or latest version.


Set Up an SIP Account
freecall.pngUnfortunately the SIP-VoIP app doesn't work with the most popular VoIP app Skype (it uses the SIP protocol), which means you'll have to set up an account with another service to use the app. Luckily there are tons of options out there that can work with SIP-VoIP. I used a service called FreeCall, so that's what I'll highlight in my examples, but the Touchmods blog lists a handful of alternatives.

If you want to follow along exactly with my settings, head to the FreeCall signup page and register for an account. After you register, you'll need to buy some minutes for your call time. FreeCall is an international service, so when it asks for your cell phone (to which it sends an SMS confirmation), you'll need to include your country code; Once you've purchased some calling time with FreeCall, it's time to enter your setup configuration in SIP-VoIP and start making calls.

NOTE: If you don't want to spend money off the bat, you might want to try signing up with a service like Gizmo5 (formerly Gizmo Project), which offers a small amount of trial credit.


set up SIP-VoIP with the SIP provider you registered with above. Launch the app from your iPod touch or iPhone's home screen, then tap on Settings in the bottom right corner. You'll see a very rudimentary form where you'll enter the settings for the SIP account you set up above.

If you used FreeCall like I did, enter your FreeCall username and password in the first two fields (other services will use the number they've assigned you as the username), then sip.voiparound.com in the field labeled SIP-Server (see screenshot). There are more fields, but for FreeCall that should be all you need. Hit Save to save your settings—you may have to hit return on the iPod's keyboard to dismiss it and see the Save button—and then tap the dial tab to head to the dialpad.

Before you make your first call, you have to connect the application to the SIP server, so click the button labeled "connect to sip server" in the lower left. If all goes well, it'll connect without a hitch. (This is where I ran into some problems with version 1.2 on the iPod touch. 1.2 connected without issue from my iPhone, but I kept getting connection error messages with 1.2 on my iPod touch. If you're having similar problems, installing version 1.1 may help.) If it connected successfully, all you've got to do is dial your number (country code included, depending on which service you go with) and hit the call button.

Set up incoming number
Your FreeCall account only handles outbound calls, but you're not out of luck if you want to add inbound functionality to your iPod touch. You can register your FreeCall SIP account with other services, like IPKall, to get a free phone number that will ring your iPod touch.
