DH only pays $20 extra/ month for unlimited data transfer. Our phone bill is about $120 a month. We are cellular only. There is no phone line into our house.

Edit to add: Got DH the 3G for his birthday. The unlimited data package is $30/month on that. It does not include texting, but you can add that for a minimal amount.

PJ Jailbreaking is when you hack your iPod so that you can add things onto it that Apple don't want you to, such as backgrounds, free applications (not from the iTunes App Store), and some other cool stuff. It's come to a stage now where its pretty safe and there is rarely a danger with doing it, except that you void your warranty if you jailbreak, so if there is a problem with your iPod, Apple won't repair it or replace it. Which is why I didn't jailbreak my iPod ;)

I would suggest you buy the iPod, it's got pretty much every feature of the iPhone, except the phone, and therefore the obscene monthly contract. It also looks identical to it, and if you still find yourself wanting to look awesome in front of your friends by faking you have the iPhone, then you can jailbreak it and add the Phone icon ;)

And jailbreaking... how cheeky :D

i have my ipod touch. got it instead of the phone. if i want the net while walkin round there is enough people who aint put security on there web to steal it for 5 mins (i know very naughty). Came in handy when i was lost and using google maps.

PLus there are so many wi-fi zones now for free i save myself £30 a month not havin the iphone. Some of the best aps so far are:

itunes remote - control your music from your ipod
VNC - control your pc from ya ipod
Facebook - check ya facebook on ya ipod

From O2 they're £350 for 8gb & £400 for 16gb. Which is more expensive than the Ipod touch.

However if you get contract they're £60 for 8gb/ £159 for 16gb, then obviously so much a month, depending on your tariff. I've got £30 tariff and i get 125 texts and 75 minutes free a month, plus free browsing.
