AT&T Opens Up FaceTime Over Cellular to All Tiered Data Plans


After opening up FaceTime over cellular to iPhone 5 customers on certain plans, AT&T has just announced today that they are now going to allow any iOS device that can use FaceTime over cellular to do so.

From the AT&T blog post, you can infer that AT&T’s concerns about lots of people using FaceTime over the cellular network being a problem were unfounded. So today’s expansion is good news for AT&T users:

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.

According to AT&T the full roll out to customers will be completed in the next few weeks.
