Mobile devices are meant to be just that, mobile, but the high cost and restrictive nature of data plans mean that users are finding it tough to use all the features of their devices when they are away from a Wi-Fi network. While there are Wi-Fi hotspots everywhere, the more security conscious tend not to use them as they are more open to hacking, potentially putting their iPhone or iPad data at risk. Thankfully, there is a solution and it comes to us as an app called 3G Unrestrictor.
What is 3G Unrestrictor ?
3G Unrestrictor is a clever app that allows you to take control of your own data plan, removing the limitations set in place by the carrier. The app tricks certain applications on your device into believing that they are using a Wi-Fi network. When installed on your device, it will load into any application that you set as being unrestricted and will tell any iOS function that they are running a Wi-Fi connection instead of 3G.
3G Unrestrictor works smoothly on any cellular connection, including LTE, EDGE, GPRS, 3G, and 4G; you just need to tell the app which of your apps you want to be unrestricted and it will work. Some of the top features include:
- This works on all iOS models and with all carriers.
- Watch videos in whatever quality you choose, not what Apple chooses
- iTunes downloads. Usually, large downloads are best done over Wi-Fi but with 3G Unrestrictor, you can download what you want, when you want.
- Back your device up to iCloud n 3G or LTE without having to worry about data usage
- Online games. Play any game you want without being connected to your home Wi-Fi
- Support for 3d party apps. Restrictions are lifted on almost all third-party apps.
