Verizon to Support FaceTime over Cellular on iPhone 5, iPhone 4S and New iPad
Verizon, Sprint and AT&T have all confirmed that FaceTime over Cellular will be supported by their networks on all devices that are capable of the feature. This contradicts other reporting which suggested that FaceTime over Cellular would only be available on the iPhone 5.
Verizon told MacRumors today that "if FaceTime works via cellular on any Apple device, it will work on any Verizon Wireless data plan with no special arrangements."
AT&T said something similar, confirming today that FaceTime over Cellular would work on all supported devices, so long as the customer has a new Mobile Share data plan. Sprint has said in the past that it is committed to unlimited data and does not discriminate based on the application used.
Apple's iOS 6 footnotes say that the only supported devices for FaceTime over Cellular are the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, or iPad (3rd generation) with cellular data capability.

No catch. They are begging you to go over your data cap though.
They're just going to smile and laugh as you zip through that data on 4G Facetime with a 720P camera :)
I pay for 5 gb + hotspot. Hotspot and FaceTime use DATA. Data I am ALREADY PAYING FOR and it's a feature of the PHONE. It's not provided by AT&T at all. It's LOCKED OUT by them. For no other reason than to charge the customer double, triple for the same damn thing.
This is not an idle threat or comment. I urge anyone else that has the spare time to do the same. I should NOT have to switch data plans yet again to get a feature unlocked on my phone. Whether I use said feature is not the point.
Data is DATA AT&T.
