The New iPad Can't Make FaceTime Calls Over 4G
The iPad still can't make a FaceTime call over the cellular network despite the new model's support for LTE 4G networks, reports The Verge.
As you can see in the positively vexing screenshot [below], attempting to initiate a FaceTime call over LTE fails out with a message exhorting you to connect to a Wi-Fi network. It's the exact same behavior that iOS devices on 3G networks have always exhibited, and it's doubly frustrating as many of those devices can serve as Wi-Fi hotspots.
It's pretty clear that AT&T and Verizon are responsible for blocking this capability in the U.S. It remains to be seen if carriers in Canada and abroad will impose the same restriction.
