Proof That The iPhone 4 Could Have Been A Sony Product Back In The 80s

iPhone 4 Won't Get FaceTime Over 3G

We heard that the iPhone 4 and 3GS were going to get stiffed over Apple’s new Maps app and its fancy Flyover and turn-by-turn directions, but it seems there are more things the older iPhones won’t get out of iOS 6, including 3G FaceTime.
