After speculation as to whether or not AT&T would charge for extra for FaceTime over cellular, the company released a statement today telling customers that they would not charge extra, however to use the feature they would need to move to the new Mobile Share data plan.

AT&T will offer FaceTime over Cellular as an added benefit of our new Mobile Share data plans, which were created to meet customers' growing data needs at a great value. With Mobile Share, the more data you use, the more you save. FaceTime will continue to be available over Wi-Fi for all our customers.

AT&T's new shared data plans, which will be available August 23, provide an easier way to share data with your tablets or other devices on your line. While the shared data plans are not required yet, AT&T is already beginning to push users to there plans and off the current ones.

Sprint has stated Facetime over cellular would be free, while Verizon believes it is "too early" to talk about it.

ATT has been trying to shove users out of their plans for years. They went into the deal willingly, but now that they've become a big player in mobile again, they no longer feel they owe their customers jack shit. If you sign up for this new plan, get ready to be jacked repeatedly, as ATT seems intent to deny service to its customers every chance they get. BTW, ATT is now telling all their employees to sell ANY other phones rather than iPhones!

They let other people know that other phones are there. They even had it on the news about this you dumb fuck.
