FaceTime Over 3G Uses 3MB Per Minute

Posted on August 3, 2010 by

Now that there is a jailbreak available for the iPhone 4, users are experimenting with FaceTime over 3G using My3G to trick the iPhone into thinking it’s on WiFi.  9to5Mac has done a test and found out that a FaceTime call only uses about 3MB per minute.

From 9to5Mac:

Many people are curious to know how much data FaceTime over 3G actually uses. We put two iPhone 4s to the test, one running FaceTime over 3G, and took before and after screenshots of the data. As you will see, if you do the math, a 5 minute FaceTime call with lots of movement used 14.7 MB of data. — That’s about 3 MB per minute.
