AT&T expands cellular FaceTime for Apple customers!

AT&T customers with Apple devices report that they are able to use FaceTime video calling with a cellular connection a capability that AT&T had been withholding from some customers. AT&T had made FaceTime calling available ONLY to customers who had purchased its Mobile Share data plans, IN CONTRAST to Sprint and Verizon, which allow ALL of their iOS customers to make FaceTime calls over cellular networks!

Even after consumer groups threatened to file complaints with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), AT&T agreed to offer the feature only for iPhone 5 customers with tiered data plans – it STILL excluded customers with unlimited data plans and those with older versions of the iPhone that are not on AT&T’s Mobile Share plan!

Now, those users are ALSO reporting that cellular FaceTime works on their devices! says:

If you simply turn off your iPhone or iPad (with cellular option) and turn it back on, the feature may start working. Go into your Settings app, scroll to where it says “FaceTime,” and check whether or not the “Use Cellular Data” setting has been switched on.

The process WORKS for L.A. Times employees and asks for feedback in the comments section of the cited article, as to whether or not the process works FOR YOU! has contacted AT&T and is waiting for an official confirmation. puts it THIS way:

AT&T appears to have switched on FaceTime over cellular to all iOS 6 customers, even grandfathered customers with unlimited data plans, and those with the iPhones 4S, who were previously excluded.

They, too, have contacted AT&T and are waiting for official confirmation!

(Psssst! AT&T! This “lack of communication” is NOT the way to run a telecommunications business! 😉 That is one of the reasons that we switched to Verizon, years ago!)
