An iPod Touch does not have the cellular capability of an iPhone, but you can still use the device to talk face-to-face with someone who has an iPhone using the free FaceTime app from Apple. FaceTime supports face-to-face communication between applicable devices -- such as an iPhone and an iPod Touch -- over a Wi-Fi network. To start a FaceTime conversation on an iPod Touch or iPhone, both you and the person you want to call must first activate FaceTime on your devices with an Apple ID.
