How To Enable Facetime Video Calling For iPhone 3GS With FaceIt-3GS App

FaceTime is an application created for iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G and PC computers with Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.4 installed and now it has been adapted to work with the iPhone 3GS also. Apple decided that the iPhone 4 needs something fresh and decided to create the FaceTime application which allows iPhone users to make video calls freely over Wi-Fi connection.

FaceTime is one of the greatest new applications created for the iPhone 4, but now you can use it on your iPphone 3GS also and in this post you will find the exact instructions on how to enable the FaceTime video calling support on their iPhone 3GS, but it works only for the jailbroken iPhone 3GS devices. As you already know, the iPhone 3GS doesn’t come equipped with a front-facing camera and this means that you won’t be able to see and hear the person you called at the same time. There is a trick that you can try, but it involves a mirror that faces you and you should carry it with you anywhere you go. Now, how would it be to see several iPhone 3GS users walking down the street with a mirror in front of them and at the same time talking on their 3GS smartphones with their friends ?! However, if you wish to install and configure the FaceTime video calling application on your iPhone 3GS, then you should follow the instructions below :
