yes im getting an iPod touch and i don't have my own wireless router .... so can i still connect to internet using the built in wi-fi alone ?

if you need to know from reading other posts that i didn't quite get ( im not all the techo-geeky ) i do have a USB port ( well like 3 ) and some SD card slots and some other weird slots i have no idea what are for ...

anyways reply soon

unless your neighbors have wifi routers (AND they are okay with you connecting to their wifi network), you will indeed need a wireless router to broadcast your internet connection in your home so that your ipod touch can connect to it.

I suggest you buy a router - you'll have a better signal, the closer the router is to you. However, if you can't get the router, talk to your neighbors and ask them if it's okay to be suing their WiFi.
