iPhone 4 FaceTime 3G Could come to Jailbroken Devices

The Apple iPhone 4 has a number of new features one of which is FaceTime. FaceTime allows you to video call from iPhone 4 to iPhone 4. However, there is currently a restriction on the iPhone 4 preventing it from working over a 3G connection.

Musclenerd commented on twitter a couple of days ago that one reason to jailbreak the iPhone 4 would be to disable the WiFi only restriction on the iPhone 4.

Apple just gave whole new reason to jailbreak iPhone 4: to trick FaceTime video chat to use 3G (not restrict to wifi)

Although video calls are actually not that exciting, we’ve had them here in the UK on various phones for 6 or 7 years now, it’s still handy to have the feature for the very occasional time you want to check up on family who live far away. Other than that, you probably wont use it as much as you think.

Either way, it appears that the iPhone 4 jailbreak will launch when the iPhone 4 launches (or perhaps just before) and at that point it should open things up on the device.
