    The other day I was fooling around with an iPod touch and an iPhone and found out something pretty cool. Instead of buying one of those expensive iPhone styluses, buy something else. An iPod touch. That's right! Where you plug in the headphones of an iPod touch works great as a stylus. Try it if you don't believe me! Where you put the SIM card in an iPhone also works, but barely, I would recommend the iPod touch if you want one that works nicely.

    Note: it doesn't work exactly where you connect the earphone, more to the right.

    he basically said the iTouch is a replacement for a stylus on the iPhone. Yeah... and he says the stylus will fit in the headphone jack of the iTouch but not the iPhone because they are diffrent.

    So with his logic, if you want an iPhone stylus, buy an iTouch lol...

    Whoo, lucky me, this will probably end up in engrish.com

    What I tried to say was that the iPhone's touch screen recognizes the area around the iPod touch's headphone jack, meaning, you can use the iPod touch as a stylus.

    Now that makes the first post make more sense. But where can you get a stylus anyway? In my country there's no such thing available in any mac stores or other technology / computer stores ...

    You got good eyes and are willing to destroy them reading this. Oh yea, and you just wasted 30 seconds of your precious life. Enjoy the rest. And stop reading so you won't waste another 20 seconds. I knew it, you couldn't stop yourself. Aaargh, 10 more seconds gone!!!!!

    Apple store isn't selling them, but some other people are. This is a link I found of someone selling one. Some people say they need styluses because their fingernails are too long, or because if it's too cold, they have to remove their gloves to use their iPhone.

    Here is a link of iGiki selling iPhone styluses: iPhone_Stylus

    lol!! why would anybody want to do that?

    and why are all stylus for iphone so thick and cumbersome. Why can they make a regular shape stylus(pda style) with a narrow magnetized tip.

    I always end up losing styluses. I would probably end up losing an iPhone stylus in a day, because there is no place to put it. I don't need a stylus either, I've never needed one. My fingernails are short, and where I live, it's 100 degrees F (38 C), so I never need to use mittens because of cold weather.

    Dude, dont even try to defend yourself there. Even a cheap iPod touch wont be cheaper than a stylus. Ive seen many iPhone stylus's for no more than 30$. If you know where to get an iTouch for less than that, let us know.

    An iTouch is NOT cheaper than a stylus.
    HAVE I HELPED YOU? Thank me!
