Numerous reports suggest that AT&T maybe extending FaceTime over cellular to more customers than previously expected.

MacRumors forum members have been noticing the change. For example, user kre62 says:

In a recent thread we were discussing AT&T members getting facetime with LTE devices and tiered plans. However I noticed today that I have facetime over cellular and I have an unlimited plan on my 5.

I just turned off my other phone, a 4S and turned it back on, only to find the switch flipped to ON for facetime over cellular. Both phones work perfectly over cellular. I also checked a few coworkers phones, all now have FT over cellular.

The change has been noticed by other users especially those with the iPhone 5 and an unlimited data plan; however, there has been positive responses from users with the iPhone 4S as well.

AT&T recently announced that it would expand FaceTime over Cellular at no extra charge for iOS 6 customers with an LTE device on any tiered data plan after intense criticism over its previous decision to make the feature only available to those on Mobile Share plans.

Argh! Try this again. When my phone connected to cellular network it would turn FaceTime over cellular off (after being on the network roughly 30 seconds). I tried a hard reboot with same result. As far as I can tell just because it says on right after a reboot doesn't mean it'll stay on if it does stay on then I'm jealous!!

After reading the comments I thought I would give this a try. I have the 4S running 6.0.1. I restarted my phone and yes, FaceTime over cellular was turned on. But as I sat there and watched my phone, FaceTime over cellular shut itself off when I was on the AT

Facebreak works thru Cydia. We've been using FaceTime over cellular for a couple years. It's worked on an iPhone 4 and 4S for me-perfectly! For now you can only have it thru IOS 5.1.1, but that will change soon.....
