AT&T does about face on Apple’s FaceTime over cellular
In the rollout of FaceTime with the iPhone 4, the feature initially required Wi-Fi to work, something Apple later lifted to work with cellular networks. But in the U.S., AT&T was a stick in the mud. Users and net neutrality groups were angered by the move, even threatening to file a complaint with the FCC. AT&T eventually relented, letting some of its customers use it over its 3G or 4G networks this past January, and opening it more widely to users grandfathered into unlimited plans just this week.
