3g facetime

It looks like FaceTime will finally go 3G in iOS 5. Or maybe not. This may not be the first time for us to report to you about FaceTime running on 3G. If you can still remember last year, we wrote to you about the rumor about FaceTime arriving on Verizon’s 3G network. But as with other rumors, they don’t really happen. Others might come true, but at least not immediately. Today, we’re hearing rumors again, this time from a Romanian iOS blog, iDevice. According to the blog, disabling 3G when making FaceTime calls will prompt an error message that will say “Disabling 3G will end FaceTime. Are you sure you want to disable 3g?”.

Using an iPhone running iOS version 5.1.1, iDevice noticed an interesting error that reportedly gave them the impression that Apple will allow FaceTime over 3G. Gizmodo, on the other hand, commented that if Apple were to release this highly-desired feature, there’s a chance that mobile carriers (in the U.S.) will not allow it work on their networks. But of course, this is obviously still a rumor for now, and it’s still too early to make any assumptions right? If it’s really true, then we’ll take it with a smile on our face. If not, life goes on.
