Previously I wrote a post about the top 5 reasons to jailbreak the iPhone 4 or any version iPhone but after using a jailbroken iPhone 4 for a few weeks I have two main reasons.
The first is tethering using the MyWi 4.0 iPhone app. MyWi supports both USB and wifi tethering and it’s great. I have a sprint overdrive and since I’ve jailbroken my iPhone 4 I have used it less and less but I’m going to keep it for those just in case moment plus there are areas where Sprint is way better than AT&T. But the USB tethering option using MyWi seems faster, more stable. Also a jailbroken iPhone 4 is a non 3G iPad best friend. Just turn your iPhone to a hotspot, connect your iPad and your surfing away. Note, I kept my unlimited data account with AT&T and this is how tethering with the iPhone is supposed to be.
The second reason/ app is the my3G app. This app allows iPhone users to use FaceTime over 3G. Just the other day I had someone want to FaceTime with me but I was at a store with no wifi. With my3G app, that wasn’t a problem. We connected and I had a FaceTime chat right in the store.
My bet is it’s more of AT&T and less Apple who disabled these features without being an additional cost like there is now for tethering and not enabling FaceTime over 3G. Regardless if you jailbreak your iPhone, teather and facetime over 3G at your own risk.
What are your top reasons to Jailbreak your iPhone 4?
