Got one iPod touch...it is almost a iPhone, but no phone. Was wondering if I get Clear mobile ( the clear wire internet) , I will have internet access and could use my iPod touch just like a iPhone, make calls using skype/google talk etc

This way don't have to pay the "data plan" crap ...

Any thoughts ?

Skype is a little limited when compared with Line2: Line2 - How It Works - Overview ( then click on the comparisons page...)
This is what I will get when I get my new iPod Touch.

This will work as long as you never need a phone outside of a Wifi AP. This can be a bit limiting as well since you wont' really be mobile per se; i.e. you take a call at Starbucks.. you can't leave there until the call is done or you'll drop that call. Even if you're going next door to Panera, and they have an AP as well...
