  • My3G Updated, Supports FaceTime

    The guys at Intelliborn have just released My3G version 4.14, which now supports FaceTime over 3G. Or, as they put it: "Facetime over 3G!!!"

    This app, which convinces other apps that they're on WiFi instead of 3G, is a big one that will probably attract a lot of first time jailbreakers. Like 3G Unrestrictor, it works around iOS's 3G/EDGE restrictions, allowing you to download files bigger than 10MB, play full-res YouTubes and use apps like Sling Player and FaceTime. Can't wait to see how the video performs over 3G and how long it takes to crash AT&T's network.

    It's available on Rock now and it should be up on our repo shortly, we're getting hit pretty hard today. Be sure to let us know how it works in comments.

    - In-App popup request to enable/never ask for My3G to be enabled for that app
    - In-App indicator when My3G changes the network from 3G to WiFi
    - Ability to select which apps are My3G enabled and not.
    - Default Apps no configuration for the most popular apps!
    - SBSettings Toggle! You can temporarily enable My3G for all apps or toggle back using your defined Apps list
    - Dynamic enablement Higher successs rate (near 100%) then 3G Unrestrictor (which does one off solutions for apps). My3G enables 3G indicators more dynamically.

      Purchased for both me and the wifey. Amazing job JB Intelliborn! Less than 24 hrs after the iPhone4 JB and facetime is the way it should have been from the get go. This is the kind of stuff that makes me jailbreak. Love it!

      Not the same at all. Two completely different programs.

      Hey guys I grabbed it off of Cydia (didnt have to pay for it?) and installed it. Also installed SBSettings and turned my3G on to always on. I even restarted my phone just in case and I continue to get the pop up saying that I need to connect to wifi.

      Anyone have any ideas?

      edit: forget it I figured it out

      I got it and it works great. Now I just need to have more than 4 friends with an iPhone 4.

      Might be a silly question, so be gentle with me. Will this work on any network? Not just AT&T? I'm in Australia. Me thinks it should, but I just want to confirm.

      Correct. Facetime is not network specific. It was designed to work on wifi not network so it has no bias to what network to work on as My3G makes it think it is on wifi.

      Stupid question? I am on 200 mb data at&t plan,if i use 3g facetime will it use lot of data? Thanks in advance.

      This would have been amazing if ATT still had unlimited date. Facetime just uses way too much data do be worth it with a limited data plan. And there is WiFi almost everywhere now so its not that big of a deal...

      Depends of course on how many calls you make and much you use FaceTime/My3G, but 200MB is scant...I think you'll chew that up in a week maybe.

      Thought I saw a tweet somewhere on the amount of data it uses but can't remember where. It may be on SBs twitter.

      But it won't take long to fill 200mb that is for sure.

      Anyone done this on their own yet by editing Voipover3g.plist? It's the free alternative if we know the proper edit.

      Anyone else think some of the apps on Rock or cydia pretty prendy? Perhaps I'm just use to only buying $.99 apps. I think I've turned into a cheap-o since I started using iTunes.
