Illustration for article titled ATT Will Finally Let Everyone FaceTime Over 3G Network

In a move overdue since FaceTime over cellular launched in September, AT&T is finally letting most of its customers actually freaking use it. In a blog post, AT&T says it has extensively tested the feature and that it will be enabled to all customers on tiered data plans at no additional cost.


Previously, FaceTime was only available over cellular to customers with LTE or Mobile Share plans. The only people who get the shaft now are those with grandfathered unlimited plans. The company says the update will roll out automatically in the coming weeks. [AT&T]

Arggh! there goes a...snake a snake!

I never understood this. If you are paying for 2GB of data and you are able to browse the internet and download apps etc., why would they disable FaceTime. I mean, it's exactly the same as Skype which had no usage restrictions. Data is data, you should be able to use it however you want.
