Skype lets you call anyone in the world for free if both parties have Skype accounts. The per-minute charge is minimal for calls from Skype to landlines or mobile numbers and phone time can be purchased with a minimum of $10. You will need to have your iPod Touch connected to Wi-Fi to use Skype and take calls.
