Default itouch to iphone

i got an idea its going to be mad hard but i was wondering
if maybe you guys could help
ok ive got this idea to turn an itouch into an iphone

we could plug a little attachment into the dock of the ipod
and in this attachment would be a mic and a sim card holder
how friken cool would that be
any one have any idea what id need to make that?
"edit"
i found a sim holder
http://www.alphamicro.net/components...~15~id~536.asp
now whats that chip and antenna called that would allow me to connect to my cell net work?
then all we need is a microphone and a way to connect it to the ipod
"edit 2"
i found a mic

and even a speaker maybe we could set it up where i put something on the top as well

I'm not sure how expensive things are but let's consider this:

-An iTouch is around $300 (8GB)
-An iPhone is around $400 (8GB)

Now with the money, time, and effort you put into modifying an iTouch into an iPhone, I think you might as well buy an iPhone.

Wait, why would you have to pay an extra $50? Does the iPhone service cost more than others? I didn't know that.

dude...no. everything in that is programmed to work with the cell hardware in the iphone.

third party sim card holders and mics wont work with it. sure, you can use them for skype mobile or watever (the mic and speaker, not the sim card) but theres no way your gettin a sim card into a ipod touch. and how the hell would you even put an antenna in there?
