AT&T Brings FaceTime Over Cellular Support to All Tiered Data Plans

On January 17, 2013


Once again AT&T has  expanded access to the FaceTime Over Cellular feature to customers on all tiered data plans with a compatible FaceTime device. In the past only users with an LTE device  could use FaceTime over cellular. Now this has been expanded to all users, except for those who are still using the old unlimited data plan.

According to AT&T users should automatically be able to use the feature within the next few months. This is what AT&T has to say:

“When FaceTime over Cellular launched in September 2012, we explained that we wanted to roll it out gradually to ensure the service had minimal impact on the mobile experience for all of our customers.

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.”
