Hey guys I was trolling the hacking forums for a way to get sip credentials tonight. One post led me to a site called magicjackhacks.com. One of their top stories was about an IPod touch/IPhone jail break app called Siphon. Curiosity got the best of me and I decided to download the Cydia App for myself. All I did was enter in my credentials (password, user name, proxy etc.). I didnít think it would actually work, but to my surprise it did! Now I have a phone on my IPod touch. The only drawback is that you have to be connected to wifi (which you have to do with the dongle anyways) and you have to buy either a headset for the iPod or a Griffin headset adapter which is about 15$ on EBay. I have actually tested it and it does work.

Great. Here's a related post http://www.phoneservicesupport.com/iphone-mj-siphon-t4198.html with experiences of other iPod and iPhone owners. Another option is to use Fring, a free download from the IPod Touch from the App store. No need to jailbreak your Touch.

I'd like to follow up on this with a basic question, How did you and what did you enter on each setting screen for this. My son has been working on this for about a week now. thanks

The ipod touch does not have a built in microphone. If you use the touch with MJ, you can hear the person you called, but they cannot hear you.

Therefore you need a headset to get the microphone.

A generic hands-free kit will work with the ipod touch second generation, because the port where you plug in the headset has the connections to recognize and use the microphone.

The ipod touch first generation does not have the microphone connections inside the headphone jack. To use MJ on a first generation ipod touch, you need a special adapter. I forget what it is called, but you can find it on the web.
