FaceTime has changed the way some Apple iPhone owners use their phones, and being able to make calls while seeing the person you’re calling has changed the way friends and families connect. Sadly it’s far from perfect and there are some improvements that need to come in future updates, which includes the ability to connect over 3G while a Wi-Fi network is not within reach.
FaceTime over 3G has been expected for a while – it’s not the first time we’ve heard rumors about using FaceTime over 3G, although we may finally see the introduction of this feature thanks to hints shown in iOS 5.1.1 (the latest iOS update).
You can see an image on this page that comes to us thanks to Apple Insider, which shows an error message stating, “Disabling 3G may end FaceTime. Are you sure you want to disable 3G?” Now what’s interesting about this is you cannot make FaceTime calls over 3G, so why are we getting this error message during a FaceTime call? It’s now obvious this feature is coming soon and we expect it way before iOS 6.
Would you like to make FaceTime calls over 3G, or are you mostly within range of a useable Wi-Fi network? It’s also worth pointing out that not ever iPhone user has a need for video calls, or they have not discovered the benefits just yet.
