AT&T FaceTime Over Cellular at No Extra Charge


Missing out on FaceTime over Cellular because you don’t have to Mobile Share Plan? Here you go!

AT&T announced today that the company will be rolling out FaceTime over cellular to customers with LTE devices and tiered data plans. This offer does not apply to folks with a 3G device using HSPA+ or any sort of unlimited data plan. So for those of you who have lost your unlimited plans with AT&T after they discontinued the offer, you’re in luck, FaceTime over cellular with no extra charge.

AT&T today announced it will enable FaceTime over Cellular at no extra charge for iOS 6 customers with an LTE device on any tiered data plan. AT&T will also continue to offer FaceTime over Cellular to customers with any AT&T Mobile Share plan, as well as FaceTime over Wi-Fi, which has always been available for all customers. AT&T expects to roll out this functionality to customers over the next eight to ten weeks.

As part of its commitment to serving customers with disabilities, AT&T is also making FaceTime over Cellular available to deaf and hard of hearing customers who qualify for special text and data-only packages.

Currently the feature is rolling out and should be available on your qualified device in 8-10 weeks. Disabled customers that qualify for special text and data-only packages will also receive FaceTime over 4G LTE without any prerequisites. The only Apple devices that currently support 4G LTE are the iPhone 5, iPad 3, and iPad 4, and iPad Mini, owners of these devices should be getting FaceTime over Cellular soon.
