Does 3G Unrestrictor work on LTE/4G?
Yes, 3G Unrestrictor works on ALL cellular/mobile internet connections like GRPS/EDGE/3G/4G/LTE
How does 3G Unrestrictor work?
3G Unrestrictor loads itself into every application that you setup to be unrestricted and then modifies it to make it think it is on a WiFi network, even though it is on 3G.
- The application asks an iPhone function "What kind of connection am I on?".
- Normally the function would answer "You are on a 3G connection!".
- But since 3G Unrestrictor modified it, it always answers with "You are on WiFi!"
All it does is tell the iPhone and the unrestricted apps it is on WiFi even though it is on 3G!
It doesn't work, what can I do?
Did you add the program you want to unrestrict to the 3G Unrestrictor config app? You can do that by starting the 3G Unrestrictor config app, pressing edit and then the + button.
- For FaceTime add: "Phone (FaceTime)" or "MobilePhone (FaceTime)" - depending on your iOS version.
- For iCloud Backups add: "Preferences (iCloud Backup)"
- For Photo Stream add: "Photos (Photo Stream)"

I have added my app to the unrestricted list, but it is still not working!
Please try killing and restarting the app. Double tap the home button to bring up the app switcher, find your app and swipe it up to kill it. After that simply launch the app from the homescreen and it should work now.
If it is still not working, you can try enabling the isDirect flag or the IfAddr Mode. Please read the help page to learn how to do that: www.3gunrestrictor.com/help/.
If that still does not help the app might not be supported.
Does 3G Unrestrictor work with Movie Box?
3G Unrestrictor does work with Movie Box, but unfortunately it has been blocked by many carriers on the network level.
This means carriers are simply blocking the network connection from being established by the app to the movie servers. There is no way for 3G Unrestrictor to change this, since the blocking does not happen on your device.
According to the Movie Box FAQ this can be circumvented through the use of a VPN network. Please refer to their FAQ and guides
Please take a look at their help page: Movie Box VPN Help
PS: I do not condone the use of piracy apps. This entry is here simply due to the support emails I am getting.
Can I use mobile internet for free without having a plan with 3G Unrestrictor?
No, you cannot! Please read the first FAQ question to understand how 3G Unrestrictor works! To be able to use it you will need a working mobile internet plan. It allows you to do things that usually only work on WiFi, but not on 3G.
If I use 3G Unrestrictor, will my mobile data usage be reduced?
No, your mobile data usage is calculated at your provider's side. 3G Unrestrictor cannot change that and you will still be billed for everything you use!
Will 3G Unrestrictor increase my mobile internet speed?
No, 3G Unrestrictor does not make your 3G or EDGE connection faster. All it does is tell the iPhone it is on WiFi even though it is on 3G!
If I am on WiFi and 3G Unrestrictor is enabled, will the data still go through 3G?
No, 3G Unrestrictor does not change whether WiFi or 3G is used and everything will work as always!
Can I use 3G Unrestrictor with my iPod Touch to use the internet without a WiFi connection?
No, this is impossible, since the iPod Touch does not have any mobile network connectivity!
Does 3G Unrestrictor drain the battery or do anything in the background?
No, 3G Unrestrictor does not do anything in the background and does not drain any battery. Please read the first FAQ question to understand how 3G Unrestrictor works!
Why am I getting an error message telling me to connect to a WiFi network when I try to make a FaceTime call?
Please check if you added FaceTime to your unrestricted list in the config app and that you did not accidentaly turn 3G Unrestrictor off! Please refer to the "usage" section for more information.
Why is my FaceTime call failing?
If your iPhone lets you initiate a FaceTime call on 3G without showing you an error message about connecting to WiFi, it usually means 3G Unrestrictor did it's job correctly.
Unfortunately a FaceTime call can still fail due a variety of reasons like a too slow internet connection on your or your partners side. Mobile network connections can be too congested or the coverage can be too bad to support a FaceTime call. In that case please try moving to a different location with more bars and try again. It might also be a problem with the network of the person you are trying to call, therefore try to call somebody else on a different network.
