    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    This is a great little microphone that allows you to use your Skype program on your Ipod Touch. (Ipod Touch doesn't have a microphone) Get more than one because they are cheap, and easy to lose!!!

    Cons:

    Can't think of any, but it would have been nice if there are other colors than black.

    How to use a mini microphone for your Skype via Ipod Touch.
    Your Ipod touch does not have a microphone, only speaker. In order to use it for your Skype call, you can either attached a pair of phone headset (3.5mm) or use a Mini Microphone. This article is about using a mini microphone, which is more reliable than the phone headset.
    A) Turn on your Ipod touch.
    B) Carefully plug in your mini microphone to your Ipod touch.
    C) Turn on Skype program, you will hear nothing when it comes on.
    D) Tap on "Contact" or "Call" to make your call.
    E) If "Contact" is chosen, tap on "All Contacts" and tap on a number (person) you want to call.
    F) His number will come up, tap on "Call".
    G) If "Call" is chosen, use the keypad just like your phone. Don't forget to type 1 + area code, then phone number, then tap "Call".
    G) You will see your Skype program calling that number, quickly tap on "Speaker" icon on screen. It will turn on your Ipod touch's speaker, allowing you to listen to the other person. If you fail to do this step, you will not be able to hear the other person!!! Be sure to maximize your Ipod Touch's volume (on its left side).
    H) You can use your Ipod touch as a phone, or simply have it in front of you while you talk. Adjust the sound level by pressing (up or down) on the Ipod touch's left button. You can use it as a phone by pressing it to your ear, or you can be in your bed cover and place your Ipod touch on your chest, speaking to the little attached microphone.
    Tips: While your mini Microphone is plugged in your Ipod touch, when someone calls you, you will not be able to hear your Ipod touch ringing. You can either have your Ipod touch nearby so you can see Skype program pops up, the only way to hear your Ipod touch "rings" when someone is calling you via Skype is to disconnect the little microphone.
    Don't forget to have it right next to your Ipod touch to plug it back in a hurry. (in order to talk back to your caller). This can be done easily, just pretend your life is on the line, you can do it....
    If your Skype program is not left on, it will not work. Go to your "settings" on your Ipod touch, tap on Skype and choose "on" for "Sign in Automatically" and "on" for when Device is locked, "Stay Online". This will allow your Skype program to work, even after your Ipod touch locks itself (after 5 minutes). Try it at home to see what I'm talking about.

    Bottomline:

    Buy a bunch of them because if you lose them, your Ipod Touch is useless when it comes to Skype. How would you like to call home when you thousands miles away and misplace your mini microphone?
