Can you use Facetime over 3G (not WIFI & not 4G) on your iPhone 4S? It worked like a charm under iOS 6.x and Apple has decided to disable it under version 7, and all without telling us! Shame on Apple! I have high suspicion to believe Apple has done this, so can anyone else confirm my account? I have tested FT over 3G on multiple iPhones and all confirm my theory. Can you?

Why do you think you're going to receive a different answer than the one received in the Apple Community Discussions Forum? LINK

Sprint claims this may be a apple problem, and Apple claims its a Sprint problem. I just can't figure out why I can watch videos in my News apps just fine over 3G here.

What are the facetime requirements over 3G in ioS 7.1?

Yesterday I ran the test and had 2.24Mbps download and 0.94Mbps upload and it still did not work and the other person had WIFI. Go figure.

How can I change the title of this thread to a question as it looks like I made a mistake. I did an advance edit but its not showing. Thanks..

It's typical for Sprint to blame Apple and for Apple to say it's a Sprint problem. I suspect though that it's in fact a problem with Sprint. Of all the carriers here in the Dallas Fort Worth area that I have done business with, Sprint is by far the worse in customer relations and I have had contracts with all the major carriers. I'm with T-Mobile right now, not the greatest, but a lot better cost wise than the others.

I also edited your title.

FaceTime requirements, straight from Apple's site (a three-second search in Google):

iOS: Using FaceTime

As you can see from the document, FaceTime over 3G should work on a 4S, though obviously it will work waaaaay better on an iPhone that can handle LTE if that's available.

So, the problem is with Sprint. Which doesn't surprise me one little bit.
