FaceTime is one of the most useful features that were introduced with the iPhone 4 that allowed to use the video conferencing feature on iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G using the front-facing camera of the said iOS devices. Since then for sure this features has been also expanded to the iPad and Apple Mac OS which helped to boost the popularity of the FaceTime call service. However, one important limitation of this service that has always been pointed out by the users is the inability of the service over 3G as an active wi-fi connection is required for it to work. FaceTime Calls is not the only feature in iOS that is disabled over 3G, GPRS etc. networks. There are others for example YouTube high quality videos are also disabled, you cannot download apps larger than 20MB in AppStore over 3G, same for music, TV shows etc.. And recent examples are iCloud Photo Stream and iCloud backups that won’t work over 3G services!
3G Unrestrictor is a Cydia app that is available for quite some time can be very useful in such a scenario. As it enables all of the above mentioned services as well as many 3rd-party apps that normally require an active wi-fi connection to work over 3G. 3G Unrestrictor 5 is recent update that has been made available for this Cydia App and makes it compatible with the iOS 5. 3G Unrestrictor 5 is available for a price of $3.99 while the users that have already purchased an older version can get hold of it for tiny $0.99 upgrade price for a limited time. It works for both iPhone and iPad including the recently released iPhone 4S!
