WOW -- so once again, their most loyal and long term customers get the short end of the deal.

Please! You are a customer with an unlimited plan that wants to stick it to AT&T on data whenever you get the chance. There is nothing wrong with that but your plan of choice shows you want to get as much data as possible for your dime. This has nothing to do with loyalty or any other entitled feelings you have. They offer a service/product and you pay for it. That's all there is to it.

For the record, FaceTime works perfectly over 3G on my jailbroken (iOS 5.1) iPhone 4 using 3G Unrestrictor.

You & I are just another account number to them. Nothing more.

It also works on the iPhone 4, lies about hardware not being capable notwithstanding.

 

I know it's not a hardware issue.

I can also see, from a business perspective, the network burdens of unlimited Facetime-over-cellular. 

 

I think it's really a shameful tactic.  And understand...there are no "unlimited" plans anymore...even for those of us that are grandfathered.  If you exceed the cap, they just throttle you instead of charging you.  So the part about what "unlimited" use would do to their network is bogus (no offense)

Absolute theft on the part of the carriers.

 

It's one reason I didn't switch to VZW.  I went with AT&T when I got my first iPhone (a 3G).  I stayed around for the iPhone 4, and then almost bailed for VZW when I got my iPhone 5 due to the LTE coverage.  I changed my mind when I realized it was going to cost me up to $20 a month more, and I'd have to accept a true data cap.   Fortunately, while AT&T still blows, the LTE coverage is better than I expected.  They apparently flipped on the new units the week after I got my phone! 

I can only please one person per day.  Today is not your day.  Tomorrow doesn't look good either.

I guess you have a point

Not sure if this is an indication of things changing but I'm on a grandfathered unlimited data plan and using a 4s. I live in San Diego. I having been checking my FaceTime over Cell for many weeks with no luck. Just tried again 30 mins ago and found FaceTime over cell toggled on. Tested a FT call over 4G and it was perfect. Things are looking up! 1smile.gif
