Jailbroken iPhone 3GS Can Run FaceTime Using Cydia Application, But With Limited Functionality

November 10, 2010, By Atul Roach

The iPhone 4 is certainly not one of the devices which impressed me, but its previous variant the 3GS was a personal favorite. Anyway, the fact of the matter is that you can only run the official FaceTime application on iPhone 4 and the ‘only’ way to manage the feat (with limited functionality) on the iPhone 3GS is jailbreaking the device.

Once you’ve managed to jailbreak the iPhone 3GS (which of course is a very personal decision and we do not recommend you do that), you can then use FaceTime on the 3GS by bringing into use the Cydia Application. You need to open the Cydia app, after which you’ll add the repository and then download the FaceIt-3GS application.

There is nothing really complicated about running FaceTime on your 3GS, but again you’ll have to remember that jailbreaking your iPhone will void your warranty. Also, another thing to remember is that this FaceTime application will only run with limited functionality.

And since the iPhone 3GS does not come with a front-facing camera, I would not recommend jailbreaking your iPhone for this half-satisfactory app. What is the point in using FaceTime when you can see the person you are talking to, but he won’t be able to see you.
