I seem to remember doing this when testing an IOS game, but that was many OS updates ago, (before game centre). Perhaps someone else has tried it more recently.
I'm not sure if it's a good idea, except for testing/debugging purposes.

If you really want to try and make it work, you might to pretend to be a VOIP or music app. Here's a good place to start your research on that. Otherwise, you could just require your users to leave the app in the foreground at all times.

That being said, you will still face potential issues with NAT and other connectivity. Mobile providers sometimes don't like you running publicly-visible servers and may block incoming connections across their network.
