“Like it does with the iOS Personal Hotspot feature, U.S. carrier AT&T appears set to control and charge for the iOS 6 FaceTime over Cellular feature [as evidenced by an iOS error message regarding enabling FaceTime over Cellular],” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac. “This iOS 6 enhancement brings the formally WiFi only iOS device video calling feature into a more useful state, letting people use the feature practically anywhere they may be.”
Gurman reports, “AT&T provided us with the following statement: ‘We’re working closely with Apple on the new developer build of iOS6 and we’ll share more information with our customers as it becomes available.'”
“We attempted to bring up the same same error message when enabling the FaceTime over Cellular feature on a Verizon iPad WiFi + Cellular, but the feature enabled without an issue,” Gurman reports.
