FaceTime over 3G possible with JailBreakMe

Yesterday we reported on why JailBreakMe would be worth your time. Today there is another cool feature that you only get on a jailbroken iPhone 4 - FaceTime video conferencing over 3G.
9 to 5 Mac has tested it and published the instructions. You can watch their 3G FaceTime call test below.

9 to 5 Mac also measured the amount of data a 5 minute FaceTime call uses. We are looking at 15MB of data. This explains why carriers do not want Apple to enable FaceTime over 3G yet. 3MB per minute is a lot. I assume we will have to wait for 4G to get cellular network based video conferencing on the iPhone.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
