Two Chinese companies have recently (2010) begun manufacturing cases for iPod Touch owners that can turn an iTouch into an iPhone. The Apple Peel 520 and the tPhone both offer voice calling and texting capabilities normally reserved for a mobile telephone. Both cases include a battery and dock connector, along with a Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card slot. With either of these innovative cases, it is now possible to use a prepaid cell phone SIM card to make telephone calls with an iPod Touch.

Things You'll Need
  • Jailbroken iPod Touch
  • Prepaid SIM card
  • Apple Peel 520 or tPhone

Instructions

  • 1. Purchase a SIM card for prepaid cell phones. A Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) provider is required. There are multiple prepaid GSM carriers to choose from, including AT&T, T-Mobile, and O2 Wireless.

  • 2. Purchase an Apple Peel 520 or tPhone case. Both are designed and manufactured in China, and have only recently been made available in the United States.

  • 3. Install the prepay SIM in the slot provided in your case. Check the instructions provided by the manufacturer for specific details.

  • 4. Mount the iPod Touch in your case.

  • 5. Install additional software onto the iPod Touch to make telephone calls. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for downloading and installing their software.

Tips & Warnings

  • Your iPod Touch must be jailbroken to install the custom software necessary to make calls using these cases.
