If you could, it would be called an iPhone, not an iPod. :D

But seriously, you cannot make cellular calls as your iPod lacks a cellular radio. You CAN make VOIP calls with the proper software over WiFi.

i'm not sure this is possible - the ipod touch lacks an external speaker and a microphone. i don't think it has the internal hardware to handle incoming audio at all. my guess is no...

I think it's possible with a Mic I saw somewhere... you just plug it, and the audio goes trough the headphones. The soft needed I "fring", and an account on Skype to youse it

Actually, Mac girl is right, but there are special headsets you could buy to talk into the phone. In the case of not having a phone, there is also something else you could buy for that. So Macgirl, in this case, is I guess wrong. Look it up on youtube, they might give you some names.
