Cydia has released an app called My3G, which lets you run WiFi apps over 3G. With this new updated version of My3G for iPhone 4, you can now make FaceTime video calls over your cellular 3G network which otherwise isn’t possible. FaceTime video quality appears to be unaffected, but framerates suffer depending on your connection as expected. Follow theses 7 steps to jailbreak and make Facetime calls over 3G.

Setup Instructions:

1) Jailbreak your iPhone 4 via www.jailbreakme.com.
2) Download and upgrade to the latest Cydia package.
3) Open Cydia, Go to Manage then Sources.
4) Click Sources, Edit then add: http://apt.modmyi.com
5) Search for “My3G” — download, and install it.
6) Go through the Rock setup process with a username and password. Open My3G and leave all settings on the default.
7) FaceTime should now work over 3G! — Make sure to “Forget” the WiFi network you are on (via iOS settings) if you want to test it.

P.S.- If you’re averse to jailbreaking, remember that Fring lets you make video calls over 3G (poorly) without any shenanigans — and unlike FaceTime, you can also video call non-iPhone users
