    Can you voice call someone using 3G on one of over a thousands calls, to anyone else on 3G using one of over a thousand phones? Yes. Did anyone ever do it? No. Do most new phones not bother with the camera on the front now? Yes. </rant> – ck01 Aug 10 '10 at 16:54

Yes to all of your questions.

The Jailbreak app My3G tricks your iPhone into thinking it is on WiFi, enabling you to use FaceTime over 3G.

    should be noted that a Facetime call uses approx. 3MB/minute of 3G data. – Josh Newman Aug 10 '10 at 20:51

Just to update an old question, this is now a carrier issue - most carriers either allow Facetime over cellular or have an option to pay for it.

3G Unrestrictor does this as well, and it's available in Cydia, so you don't have to put Rock on your phone.
