    So I just finished jailbreaking my iPad and I installed MyWi on it. So then I had an idea. What if I tethered the iPhone to the iPad. Would it then let me use facetime since we don't have wifi at work.

    Well I set it up and it worked FLAWLESSLY. I was shocked at how well it performed.

    doesn't that just prove at&t has the bandwidth for facetime? pretty lame of them to ban it if you ask me.

    Well that proves once the 4 is JB that it'll be as easy as 3g unrestrictor

    What it proves is that if only a few people hack their way to use FaceTime via 3G then AT&T has the bandwidth for it. It does not prove that AT&T has the bandwidth if it were readily available for everyone.

    Exactly. That's why it's nice to be one of those few people. ;)

    fair enough. but doesn't it piss you off that at&t doesn't have the bandwidth to support everyone? and your next best option is to lug around another device to use it?

    It doesn't really piss me off that AT&T doesn't have the bandwidth. I mean we (iPhone users) really are putting a big strain on their network. I really wonder if Verizon's would be able to handle it any better. I don't understand cell networks enough to even predict that.

    I forgot there is a 3g unrestrictor app. I can't wait then for the ip4 jb.
