    Basically I use the program Groove Shark in my car to listen to music. There are some songs that require a wifi connection to play. Is there any way to make my phone think it's on wifi but actually on 3G?

    Jailbroken Iphone 3G using fw 3.1.3

    I personally use 3GUnrestrictor. I pretty much forgot I even own it because it just works...every time...without hassle. First Cydia tweak I ever purchased...the wifi quality YouTube when on 3G was a must!

    I use My3G and it works well too. Not sure which is better. I just use it to FaceTime over 3G and occasionally download or update large apps over 3G which require wifi.

    So does that mean your data plan won't show any usage? I have a 200mb data plan with AT&T and that would be pretty cool if I didn't have to worry about going over the 200mb.

    ATT still knows you are using 3G.

    The phone is just tricked.

    No, that has nothing to do with it.
    You will still use up your carrier data if you're not pulling it thru wifi and will go past your 200mb limit if you're not carefull.
