I do not know what (old) microphone-less model iPod Touch the "The
" model is that you are referring to, but the my iPod Touch 4 built-in microphone works just fine for Skype calls. You must be talking about one of those "antique" ones that have no microphone. Speaking in absolutes (i.e. "The") is rarely accurate or correct.
