Not illegal, but you need to jailbreak your iPod

which voids warranty and puts you on Apple's 'naughty list' ( actually just voids warranty).

Not sure what mobile carriers will work with this device...I think it's a standard GSM device, so a AT&T or Sprint Sim should work fine with it.

You mean, the question is legit?

I thought it was going to be the first half of a 'Call and Response' spam pair.

Well, if it's spam, I've been fooled.

The apple peel is an interesting product that's been on Gizmodo.

It's a sleeve with a cell-phone-radio built in, so you can make an iPod touch become essentially an iphone 3GS. (Not sure if you could add it to a 3GS to make it a dual-carrier cell phone)

Neither Apple nor AT&T or Verizon are terribly excited about such a product, since it may deprive them of a few dollars of their precious revenue.

It looks like a far more expensive option to a mobile carrier.
Depends on how attached you are to your iPod touch, I suppose...

I wonder if they make an iPad model

to add calling capability to the tablet. I'm sure you're correct about the carrier rates being ridiculous. I'm guessing it's locked into a single carrier.
