  • 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.

    4.1 Updates

      After downloading and installing the software I called a friend (I had a full 4-bar 3G signal and she was on wi-fi). It appeared to work -- for a few seconds, but then the picture froze and the call was dropped. I redialed to try again and the same thing happened.

      The free 10-day trial is a good idea -- I'll gladly pay the $4 when the software is completely ready.

      I think my iPhone did a reboot about 10 mins. ago because the 3G signal may have dropped (poor coverage) area. Other than that, Hava Player + and MyWiFi work fine.
      Could you please confirm if Hava plyer works for you with MY3G , if yes could you please help me to understand the steps.

      3GUnrestrictor supports FaceTime now and from twitter:

      Did you know Rock stole the concept and parts of the implementation from 3GUnrestrictor, and redirects all ads for 3GU to My3G in their app?
      After being threatened with libel by Rock


      (Note: I was wrong about Rock/My3G with the "parts of the implementation" before, and I apologize. But my point about the ads still stands.)

      I downloaded My3G and it was working flawlessly over 3G. The person I chatted with was also over 3G and the video and audio was clear. This was a couple of days ago. Yesterday, I did an update through Cydia and since then Facetime hasnt worked over 3G or WiFi. I had to uninstall My3G to get Facetime working over Wifi again. When my#g is installed, all I get is the "FaceTime Failed" message. Please help.

      I did not update yet and thanks for the quick info seems like I will wait for the next update.

      So far me and my family total 10+ iPhone 4's all running My3G only get problems when the signal is low, with full bars no signs of lag.

      This program is sweet!

      I jailbroke my iPhone 4 yesterday so I could try My3G and use FaceTime over 3G.

      I expected FaceTime to be slower than wi-fi of course, with broken images. What I didn't expect was that the person receiving the FaceTime call can essentially hear no sound from you. I tested this with multiple people yesterday and today.

      Which makes My3G for FaceTime completely useless. Sorry I purchased it.
