AT&T Apparently Relents, Activating FaceTime Over Cellular For Non-LTE Customers Too?

5

Earlier this month, AT&T announced FaceTime over cellular was finally coming, though, with a few strings attached. Customers with old, grandfathered unlimited data plans and those with non-LTE devices would not be seeing FaceTime over cellular support. Only newer LTE devices would work (on LTE and 3G/HSPA too). But it appears AT&T is caving more (as they should).

MacRumors forum member kre62 discovered last night that his iPhone 4S with iOS 6, a non-LTE device, had its “FaceTime over Cellular” toggle activated. The tests that followed proved successful. Throughout the same forum thread are more reports of successful FaceTime over cellular calls that according to AT&T’s previous requirements, wouldn’t be eligible.

We’re waiting to hear back from AT&T as to whether or not they’ve had a change of heart or if this is more-so an error on AT&T’s part. Either way, the fact there’s any restriction is ridiculous. But you knew that already, right?

    This isn’t true, att had probably fixed their error. Everyone has stopped talking about this, I wonder why

  • Harbmaster

    I feels this is a news conspiracy for some reason I mean this should be big news and everyone has stopped talking about it almost the same day. Ridiculous. I want att to allow facetime.

      Chill man. We’re not deleting comments. DISQUS seems buggy at the moment. I couldn’t even see your other two comments earlier. I saw the notification emails but they wouldn’t load.

    Ok, I believe you, but that doesn’t change the fact att has upset me, very much and I want to facetime over cellular. This…..sucks,
