Hackers giveth what AT&T illegally tries to take away. VolPower3G 1.1 has been released on Cydia. The application has been branded as 3G Unrestrictor on the Cydia Store. Now a premium application, the software costs $2 to purchase.
3G Unrestrictor forces all iPhones to recognize GPRS/EDGE and 3G data connections as Wi-Fi connections. This ensures that users can access services that Apple and carriers have mandated as Wi-Fi only.
This opens up VoIP, SlingPlayer, and even App Store downloads over 10 MB to be processed without Wi-Fi. In the United States, the FCC stated that protocol based restrictions on communication were illegal, effectively imposing a limited state of net neutrality on carriers. Despite this, AT&T banned SlingPlayer from working on their network, and Apple preemptively banned VoIP software from functioning on cellular data networks. AT&T has refused to respond to PhoneNews.com, or any other media organization, as to their position on the FCC’s Comcast/BitTorrent ruling that imposed this mandate.
As with most iPhone hacks, Cydia and the Cydia Store requires a jailbroken iPhone to install.

I’ve created a video tutorial for 3G Unrestrictor application. The Video is available at:
Wow… Just bought 3G Unrestrictor. $2.00 seems like a real bargain to have the abilities that should have been included with the iPhone in the first place. It’s well worth the fee just to be able to purchase and download apps that are over 10mb in size… not to mention being able to use apps like Joost over 3G. I’m looking forward to the [bus] ride home tonight already!
Now to go purchase a VoIP app and set it up so that I can use my home phone line to make/receive calls as well… That should allow me to cut back voice service to a lower tier and save some money– a welcome option, given our nation’s current economic circumstances.
I downloaded this app and it seems like a real bargin. I have no use for voip or slingplayer but it is nice to have good quality videos on the go with you tube. Also for the MLB fans like me Crash-x says he is trying to configure this app to work with the MLB at bat app, so that you don’t have to put up with the diminished quality videos.
Is it possible to install this on my 3gs 3.1 phone that is NOT jailbroken?
There is no jail brake for my phone as of yet.
I’ve posted this same message on several websites just to save you the end user money. Don’t waste your cash on this app, with regards to the Slingplayer. I jailbroke my iPhone thinking that I’d be able to run Slingplayer with this particular APP; well it doesn’t work. Crash-x should put some time into making it work with SLING. Who cares about MLB? Sling is the app everyone wants working on 3G. Get it right!
you re an idit it works on slingplayer! you just dont know how to F read and use the application, you have to go to the setting and allow slingplayer to connect using 3g you noob, that is why you have to eyes and one mouth! but in your care it looks like you have ONE eye and TWO BIG MOUTH.
If anybody actually paid money for MYWI or 3g unrestrictor….your an idiot!!!!! do some research on youtube. you can acess another source by opening cydia going to manage> sources> edit> add:Sinfuliphonerepo.com/ then downloading the cracked versions of both!!
