With the recent changes to the iPod touch and the crazy prices charged by AT&T for a monthly plan, many people have been pondering the question: “Can I turn my iPod into an iPhone?”

The answer is yes.

With a little bit of ingenuity, some WiFi, a few handpicked apps and a pair of headphones with a mic, you can forget AT&T’s near $100 dollar/month plan and replace it with Free texting and Free Voice.

Note: If you choose the jailbreaking (link for 4.0.1 or lower) route, you can simply download the Google Voice App from Cydia and make your life easy. I should also direct you to this link if you want to buy a piece of hardware that can turn your iPod into an iPhone without any apps at all.
