    Doesn't is cost something like $2--are you kidding? You pay significantly more to have your monthly service on top of the cost of the iPhone and you can't spare $2?

    How about compensating the developer for his hard work.

    I'm trying to use VoipOver3G but I haven't had any luck. I have a 3G on OS 3.0.

    I have a related question. After you buy it off of cydia do you need to buy it again if you have to restore for whatever reason? Can you back it up some how?

    You can just download it again. They're synced to your individual device.

    Is $2 really that much to ask for the functionality of this app?

    Christ, I just asked if there is a free alternative

    I am not interested in paying for it, hence why I am asking if anyone knows of an alternative......


    I'd appreciate it if people stuck to the question as opposed to telling me I should pay for the app

    The first reply to this thread had to be edidted as he insulted me for not paying the developer. Is there something people don't understand with this question?

    Oh we understand the question and also that you dont want to pay :D
    So to answer your question no, there is no free alternative that would accomplish the same as 3Gunrestrictor.
    Voipover3G is free but has the following limitations


    ◦It is configured to only trick Fring and Skype in the default configuration.
    ◦You cannot add new apps easily - You have to edit config files, which is too complicated for most users.
    ◦It doesnt work with the AppStore and iTunes Store - You wont be able to download applications and podcasts bigger than 10MB.
    ◦It doesnt work with YouTube, you wont be able to watch videos in the same high quality as on WiFi

    3G unrestrictors features:

    ◦An easy to use configuration app - Add whatever apps you want and unrestrict them from their chains!
    ◦Works with the AppStore and iTunes Store
    ◦Works with YouTube and lets you watch movies in high quality

    Applications verified to work:

    ◦Skype
    ◦Slingplayer
    ◦YouTube
    ◦AppStore
    ◦iTunes Store
    ◦Nimbuzz
    ◦Fring
    ◦Truphone
    ◦FriendCaller
    ◦SipPhone

    Applications verified not to work:

    ◦MLB At Bat 2009
    I tried getting this to work, but it uses Apple's new streaming technology that checks how much badwidth is available and then chooses the stream. I didnt find a way to change that behaviour. A later version of 3G Unrestrictor might make it possible. I might find a solution sometime later.
    ◦BBC iPlayer
    I tried to get it to work too, but it seems that the iPlayer uses a system that detects whether an IP-Address belongs to a mobile internet provider and then blocks it if the mobile, iPhone version of the iPlayer is used. This is possible, because the iPlayer uses the service of a company at which every internet provider has to register it's IP-Ranges. Since the check whether a mobile internet connection is used is made on the iPlayer side and not on the iPhone's side in the Safari app, I cannot unrestrict that.

    Answered your question in detail or what?:)

    Also to add:

    3GUnrestrictor works with any 3G iPhone that YOU own. I paid for the app on my 3G S iPhone. I then wanted to add it to my 3G iPhone. No problem. Since I didn't pay for the app on the 3G iPhone, all I had to do was login to the screen it takes you to using the email address that I paid for with the first iPhone and the 3G phone then showed that I paid for the app. It then allowed me to install. Both phones now show up as authorized to install the app after I had to restore them.

    I know the rules of the forums but I simply cannot pass this up. Is a guy with the installous icon as their picture really saying something about paying for an app? lol
