Will AT&T Charge For FaceTime Over Cellular?

Back in June at WWDC, one of the big “new” features for iOS 6 was FaceTime over cellular. We’ve heard this promise before, but carriers always seem to shut down the operation before launch, this remains true in iOS 6. At least for AT&T customers…

As of now it looks like AT&T is going to either restrict or charge for the supposedly native iOS 6 feature. Users have reported these finding in the MacRumors forums but the issue doesn’t seem to impact Verizon or Sprint customers.

According to MacRumors, AT&T issued a new statement on the matter which is almost identical to the first one they made on the iOS 6 feature.

We’re working closely with Apple on the new developer build of iOS 6 and we’ll share more information with our customers as it becomes available.

Looks like AT&T has plans to make you pay for FaceTime. We can’t be certain how this is going to turn out, but carriers are weary about losing precious data and bandwidth.

I can’t say I’m shocked.

    If they charge for a feature like that I will leave the cell service. Hell Cricket is getting the iPhone also and I bet they won’t charge you. I bet sprint or verizon won’t charge either

      yeah man it’s pretty lame. Cricket has the iPhone 4S / 4 already. I hope they don’t charge, it’ll tick off a lot of customers.
