How to enable FaceTime over 3G with iOS 6
iOS 6 finally brings FaceTime over 3G, so you’ll video chat with friends and loved ones on the go.
iOS 6 is here, and it’s the potential to form FaceTime calls over a 3G (or 4G) connection. Finally! Up so far, iOS users were limited to using FaceTime over a Wi-Fi connection. No more.
FaceTime over 3G does have a few limitations. First, you will need to be running iOS 6 on an iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, or the new iPad (third-generation). Second, your carrier has got to leave FaceTime to be used over its network. So far, only AT&T has announced any sort of restriction or requirement for FaceTime to figure using its network. Sprint and Verizon customers have at it. Just keep an eye fixed on your data plan if you’re on a tiered or maybe shared list.
Enabling FaceTime to be used over 3G is easy:
- Launch the Settings app.
- Select FaceTime from the list of options.
- Scroll to the rock bottom of the screen and switch on “Use Cellular Data.”
Current iPhone owners, was FaceTime something you used? If not, is that the capability of placing or receiving a FaceTime call from anywhere enough to urge you to start out using the feature?
