How to Use FaceTime Video Chat Over 3G Network?

Hello Jaxov, I just upgraded my factory unlocked iPhone 4 to iOS 4.3.3 and then jailbroke it using Redsn0w 0.9.6rc16 on my Mac. Just like other iPhone jailbreakers, I jailbroke mine in order to add more features on it. This is my first time to jailbreak, and don’t know much about Cydia app and other jailbreak tweaks. Well, at least I have MyWi, WinterBoard, and SBSettings.

When I am at work, I always used FaceTime to video chat my wife and kids. However, last week, on a business trip, I can’t connect to Wi-Fi to have a FaceTime chat with my wife. I’ve heard that “there’s an app for that”, but am not really sure. Please advice. Thanks.

Hello Tyson, there are tons of new features and tweaks that you could add on your beloved iOS device once you jailbreak it, and one of these features is the ability to use Apple’s FaceTime video chat over 3G network. Well, if you are unaware, this feature is not exclusive anymore for jailbreakers as Apple already introduced this feature into their new iOS 5 firmware that is expected to be available this coming fall. So while waiting for the iOS 5, you can use My3G app to enable FaceTime on your 3G network if the Wi-Fi is not available.

To download My3G, just simply launch Cydia from your Springboard then tap on Sections tab at the bottom of the screen and then tap on System from the list of Sections. Now, tap on My3G from the list of Packages and install it. Respring your iPhone after installing the app. To activate My3G, just simply tap on My3G icon form the Springboard and then Log In using your RockID or sign up if you don’t have one by pressing on Create New RockID button. That’s it, you can now use My3G to enable FaceTime over 3G network. It is worth noting here that after your 9 day trial expires, My3G costs $3.99.
