AT&T has announced 'as a result of ongoing testing' that it will enable FaceTime over Cellular for all customers with a tiered data plan.

This means iPhone 4S customers with tiered plans will be able to make FaceTime calls over the AT&T cellular network. AT&T previously made FaceTime over Cellular available to customers with a Mobile Share plan and those with an LTE device on tiered plans.

Of course, FaceTime over Wi-Fi remains available for all customers who have a compatible iPhone or iPad.


The rollout will start in the next couple weeks and take a few months to complete.

AT&T had previously offered FaceTime over Cellular to just iOS 6 customers with an LTE device on a tiered data plan after intense criticism over its initial decision to make the feature only available to those on Mobile Share plans.

AT&T is full of crap when they know they have the bandwidth to support users. They are extorting their loyal grandfathered customers!

I called AT&T a few weeks ago and customer service agents(more than one) told me starting february they will roll out facetime over cellular to all data plans, I call to activate the feature but told me to wait a few weeks and it will be done automaticaly. I've been with AT&T for over 7 years, and I get excelent customer service everytime I call, hopefully they told me the truth.

Gotta love how they leave out the grandfathered plan people who have been with them for years. AT&T are assholes and just to rub it in I'm gonna use 10gb of data this month on purpose. Streaming Netflix constantly.
