I tried using My3G to do facetime with my wife yesterday (September 20) and couldn't get it to work. She was in a hospital bumming off the hospital's wifi (she's not jailbroken) and I was at work testing out My3G.
I placed the facetime call and she received it and tried to answer, but it spent about 1-2 minutes trying to connect before I finally canceled it. I then enabled my wifi at work, but still couldn't get facetime to function. This is when I got on this forum and saw that virtually everyone was having problems with My3G.
When we both got home I disabled my wifi and tried another facetime call with her via My3G and it worked like a charm. After My3G worked, I tried again with wifi to see if I was cut off at one minute, and I wasn't. Both facetime methods worked as advertised.
I can't see any reason for this to make a difference, but would the fact that the phones were in the same room affect how well facetime works with wifi & My3G?
I'm running My3G version 4.3.6

Hopefully with the more recent updates they've remedied the problems that the other threads are complaining about.
I did reinstall My3G before I got it to work at home. maybe that fixed it.
