I thought you were going to actually turn it into a phone. Like this.

Also, I don't think you should have everything spoiler'd like that.

SMSend is for Ukraine only, this was made just for looks pretty much but I guess when I get time I can update to make it look at work like an iPhone.

for the VOIP, do you guys know any good free ones?
I would hate to make you guys pay for it.

Umm it be better for you to do a fieldset and not Spoiler for everything,tho I still wanna do who cant tell the different between the iphone and the ipod touch. I mean the headphone jacks are on different sides, the sizedifferent is noticeable and you cant make calls on it.

Instead of using SMSend and Truphone, you should use InfiniteSMS and fring instead. Using fring, you can setup free VOIP (I get all my calls for free within the U.S., cell or landline). InfiniteSMS is by far the best SMS app for the iPod touch, it actually let's the other person respond, right from the app.

Thanks for the other SMS app, but fring won't work with rename II, the icon will not show up. If it doesn't matter to you guys tell me so then I can will release the winterboard theme for you guys.
