Apple Peel 520 Turns iPod Touch Into iPhone: No Jailbreak Needed

Have you got the Apple iPod Touch but want the iPhone? Well now you can have your iPod working as a fully functional iPhone thanks to a new kit released by a Chinese company.

The new gadget is called Apple Peel 520, if you wish to use your iPhone in the US on another carrier other than AT&T you would have to resort to jailbreaking your iPhone, but thanks to this new device no Jailbreak is needed.

The Apple Peel 520 kit consists of a docking connector, battery and a SIM card, to use the product users would have to install the software that comes with the device to enable the text-messaging feature.

The software supplied will bypass Apple’s security on the iPod; you obviously install software at your own risk as it could leave you with your warranty being void. Once the above is done you will get around 120 hours on standby and up to 5 hours of talk time using the Apple Peel.

The Apple Peel 520 costs about $60, this is very good indeed as the iPod Touch costs around $235, if you combine the iPod and the kit together it is still much cheaper than the Apple iPhone.

    I have one. It works on Orange, but I haven't found any other SIM that will work. GPRS is not yet available, but should be once the software is updated. If you go for it, remember iOS 4.1 cannot be jailbroken yet, so hold off updating your iPod's firmware.

    I have an apple peel, and a few things you should know. First, of course, your ipod touch must be jailbroken.

    Here are some of the things I haven't read in the reviews.

    1. The mic/earbuds you use to make calls will no longer adjust your volume unless you drill a hole into the case and access the ipod touch's headphone jack.
    2. If you plug the headphone mike into that jack via the hole, you have volume control on the ipod touch, but cannot make calls
    3. You have to fiddle about to get any sound on the headphones when using the apple peel's jack with earbuds and mic. It works fine with regular earphones without a mic. You really have to fuss with it if you want to hear what is coming over the phone, and often people will hang up by time you get it adjusted
    4. You have to add area code to every contact to get SMS's to work.

    Bottom line: If you don't use your phone much, and just want a phone option for the ipod touch when you carry it, then it is a fun hobbyist's toy. Not for serious cell phone addicts, or anyone who needs a reliable and easy to use phone daily. Wait until they get the bugs out of it. I am posting this because I wish I had this information before I purchased it, but don't see it discussed anywhere.

    Really interested in the GPRS when it arrives, and thanks for the useful comments that flag up the current issues as it has brought my excitement down to a normal level again!
    Will follow and see how progress comes along.
