you can not give an iPod free internet unless u carry a starbucks with u at all times.

an iPod needs wifi, it can't just pull out data fro the thin air. MyWi turns idevices into a hotspot to share a data plan you already pay for. if u don't have a data plan (i.e.: on an iPod) then u have no data to share.

You can't have free internet.

MyWI is for tethering your iPhones/ipads 3G connection to other devices. it doesn't just give you free internet.

An iPod simply doesn't possess the same hardware as other devices. if ur not near wifi, you won't be eating data.
