    hi,

    i have seen a couple OLD posts about this but no recent one so here is the question again....

    is there an app to make your android device think your on wifi when you are actually on 3G? im from belgium and i have a app to stream tv shows...and yeah i know it is faster to stream over wifi :) but sometimes i wanne see a episode just wherever i am without needing wifi!!!

    yeah...i know there are alot of peope saying to stay on wifi...but i have a good data plan so its not a problem to stream tv shows!!! but for some apps it would be really handy to have an app to make it think its on wifi...and 3G is pretty good to stream stuff aswell in my area so...anybody got an idea about this??

    Interesting request. I'll be interested to hear if "there's an app for that". I guess that there is not because there is no application-programmer-interface (API) for such a thing. (That is, I guess there is no way for programmers to do that on a stock phone.) I would guess that any solution would require rooting and a custom ROM.

    This is one of the few things I could do on my iPhone a couple years ago that I can not do on android. Anyone know an answer??
