Have an iPhone and and another iOS device like iPad 2 or iPod touch 4 and curious how to use personal hotspot to place a FaceTime video call over 3G?
While you can’t do a FaceTime call on an iPhone 4 or iPad 2 over 3G, for some flummoxing reason you can turn on personal hotspot on iPhone 4, connect to it on another iPhone 4, iPad 2 or iPod touch 4, and make all the FaceTime calls you like. Here are the steps and each one is a link to previous step that gives you more info.
- Turn on personal hotspot on your iPhone
- Connect your iPhone 4, iPad 2 or iPod touch 4 to the personal hotspot
- Launch FaceTime and start your video call!
The quality is good, better in fact than I remember it being with Jailbreak 3G enablers for whatever reason (though Jailbreak doesn’t require a second device). Just remember to keep an eye on your iPhone’s battery life and data cap!
