Hence, apps like Slingplayer and Skype, which are only supposed to work on wifi, can be used when no wifi is available, and you are on 3G, or even just on Edge. The app can't make 3G or Edge be any faster than it is. It simply allows you to use apps on 3G that are couldn't otherwise be used without wifi.
    Thanks for the clarification. Initially I was under the impression that it would actually increase the speed of EDGE or 3G.... which I thought you was incredibly impressive since seemingly impossible. Guess I seemed right in the first place.

    Hmm, The application is a super cool application. Everyone should try it and can easily enjoy with friends. The tricky thing that shows it is on wifi is really fantastic.

    This app is definitely worth the $2. Pure genius for the people that thought of this. My only question is, what are the apps that I have to set the ISDirect flag for? Is there a certain list of apps that can be available to let people know which apps this setting should be turned on for? That would be very helpful! Thanks though for the wonderful app!

    So far I know only about the apps dailyme.tv and gamelofts UNO that need that flag and the flag is enabled automatically when you add the app for those two.
    You should only enable it if the app is not unrestricted otherwise. For most apps you can ignore it.

    This app is great.
    If only it worked with BBC iPlayer I would be a very happy bunny.

    Im going abroad next week. Will this help me get free calls via truephone?

    If it tricks a 3g connection into thinking its wifi, will my network provider not charge me for using 3g abroad?

    Or isit only handy to use in the same country that you're network is based?

    It tricks your app. It doesn't trick your service provider.

    iPhone 2G? Since there is no such thing, I guess the answer would be no.

    Yes. But obviously the fastest speeds you will get are Edge speeds which means it might not be a very pleasant experience.

    Ok guys, what about IPod Touch? I have IPod Touch 2nd, 3.0 firmware. The problem is that you cannot use skype calls over VPN as the software "thinks" that i'm on 3g or edge network ...
    I know that similar problem have IPhone users when connected over VPN.

    Have anyone tried to use 3g unrestrictor on IPod Touch, any success?

    Personally I tried it and it does not work. I am thinking of making full RESET and try it again, however before would like to know if anyone was successful doing it?

    Thanks,

    Since the iPod touch is not a phone, it doesn't have any network at all other than wifi. So, how would making an app think it is on wifi when you are without any wifi do any good? Even if the app thinks its on wifi, you have no network to connect to. 3G Unrestrictor doesn't somehow magically put a 3G radio into your iPod.

    Have you ever tried to use skppe over vpn (over wifi) on ipod touch?

    Just to make a point that you are wrong: http://forum.skype.com/index.php?showtopic=395371
