Jailbreak could bring video calls over 3G
FaceTime video calling is one of the most anticipated new features of the iPhone 4. Apple has announced that FaceTime will only work over a WiFi connection, which means it will not work over AT&T’s 3G network or international carriers’ networks.
That limitation could give iPhone 4 users another reason to jailbreak their device.
Musclenerd from the iPhone Dev Team commented on Twitter soon after the iPhone 4 was announced “Apple just gave whole new reason to jailbreak iPhone 4: to trick FaceTime video chat to use 3G (not restrict to wifi)”.
At some point AT&T may allow FaceTime calls over 3G but until it’s official, using FaceTime on a 3G network will require a jailbreak.
