AT&T has announced that they are expanding the availability of FaceTime over cellular to all customers with a compatible iOS device, no matter what data plan they have. While some AT&T iPhone 4S users began seeing this feature back in November, AT&T did not make a statement at the time, and reports were sporadic. AT&T made the announcement today on its consumer blog:
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.
The feature isn’t live for all customers yet. AT&T says that they will be rolling it out over the next couple of weeks. Customers don’t need to do anything, as the update will be applied to all customers in the coming months.
Are you an iPhone 4S user on AT&T, finally glad to be getting FaceTime over 3G? Are you still irritated that you had to wait in the first place?
