iPhone/iPod software

I love Ipods! Wish I had an Ipod touch! Who is bringing their phone and inserting the European sim card when they are overseas?[br][br]If you crash into something good, hold onto it until its time to let go[br][br]European Wonder 6th August -19th August 2009[br][br]Then Barcelona, Ibiza and Tomantina baby!!!

I have an ipod touch and an ipod mini. I’m undecisive which one i will bring on my trip because a) bringing the mini means i won’t be utterly destroyed if i lose it or it gets mugged or broken but b) the ipod touch can carry photos as well as music and movies and there are lts of app’s to help travellers ie. translators, maps etc as well as the world wide web at my fingertips (and yes i would be gutted if something happened to it!)[br][br]Anyone got any suggestions/advice? should i go A or B??[br][br]Nicole[br]Grand European 28th July 2009[br]+ Britain & Ireland 5th September 2009[br]+ Greek Islands

omg it has translators!!! lol it would be heaps more fun to have a ipod touch… but then again if you do loose it! Or it might take away the focus of socialising with others on the trip?

HAHAHA See my dilemma?! lol[br][br]I don’t think it will affect my solialising at all. I’m not likely to bury my head in my gadgets and not experience the trip in it’s entirety. [br][br]PS. There are like millions of applications available for the ipod touch & iphone to suit EVERY possible thing you could possibly need or want and a whole heap of fun ones too![br][br][br][br]Nicole[br]Grand European 28th July 2009[br]+ Britain & Ireland 5th September 2009[br]+ Greek Islands

Hi Nicole[br][br]I got some great advise from someone on the forum. Definitely take ipod touch because you can use skype on it so then you can contact family and friends back home very easily. Most hostels have wireless internet so you can just call from your room rather than finding an internet cafe that has a microphone that works.[br][br]This is the best advice i have been given. Soooo excited!!![br][br]Carly

Thanks for the info cgill86![br][br]I was considering the benefits of skype on my ipod but because i have an ipod touch and not an iphone i would have to buy a headset with microphone to plug into it (and i am trying to keep down my packing list and my spending lol). [br][br]I ended up deciding to bring my phone with me and using the top deck sim card (that way others can get in contact with me if they need to) but i am still definately taking my ipod!! Music, books, photos, movies, travel apps as well as games the list of uses is endless![br][br]Nicole[br]Grand European 28th July 2009[br]+ Britain & Ireland 5th September 2009[br]+ Greek Islands
