While AT&T hasn't yet decided whether or not it will charge users for using Apple's FaceTime video-chat service over its cellular network, Sprint says it's customers can use the service free of charge.
Reports the Wall Street Journal:
Sprint Nextel Corp., which still offers unlimited data to new and existing users on its network, said it has no plans to erect pricing barriers to FaceTime.
"We are committed to our unlimited data and that means not charging for data consumption based on the application," a spokeswoman said.
Sprint is the only iPhone carrier in the United States to still offer an unlimited data plan to new customers.

I'd rather put up with slow speeds on a consumer friendly network than an abusive carrier who might have a faster network but would rather nickel and dime me because of what app I use and not because I went over my data limit. Sticking it out with AT&T (if they decide to charge extra for 3G/4G FaceTime) is telling them that we want more fees based on what apps we use. And if they could decipher between Netflix/Hulu data, they'd charge us for that too.

They're an awesome company and I've never had problems with speed, contrary to what was posted above.
