      What type of phone do you have? I have a droid (with a headphone out jack).
      I got a cord at radio shack and went from my phone out to a channel on my
      board (a few connectors to go 1/8" to 1/4") and now I can add bass and trele
      to the phone and control the volume with my mixer. I just talk into the
      phone and my microphone. The output of the mixer goes into the computer, or
      in my case a Zune H4.

      The other alternative is Skype out where you can call people's phones. I
      still get their phone number (as Skype can get weird too) you might have
      some "can you say that again - skype cut out moments).
