If you’ve been holding a grudge against AT&T because you couldn’t use FaceTime on your iPhone, it’s time to let go. The company has just announced that all tiered data plans will have access to iOS 6’s FaceTime Over Cellular.
When FaceTime over Cellular launched in September 2012, we explained that we wanted to roll it out gradually to ensure the service had minimal impact on the mobile experience for all of our customers.
As a result of ongoing testing, we’re announcing AT&T will enable FaceTime over Cellular at no extra charge for customers with any tiered data plan using a compatible iOS device.
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.
This update will automatically be applied to your device and will happen over the next few months. Maybe Verizon will hop on board too. Wishful thinking? 😉
