I am in the NYC metro area (northern NJ) and have iPhone 5 with grandfathered unlimited, I rebooted and mine too says call AT&T... I hardly ever use Facetime, but its more the principle of the matter! I honestly rather have LTE in my neck of the woods!

Interesting how we have a news story about it being extended and a reach out to AT&T for clarification, but no news story about FT being enabled and then re-disabled.

It's a slow news day too.

Still doesn't work.

I am in Hudson County, New Jersey .... just across the River from Manhattan. I have tried powering my phone off, then back on but I am still not able to turn on "use Cellular Data". Is there anything else I need to do to be able to do so? Or is it just taking AT&T a while to make this feature available in my area?

I guess it was just a mistake on at&ts end. It is very annoying indeed as I got very excited!

Lets see what happens in the future and if they will allow us Unlimited-ers to have FT over Cellular.

I posted earlier that mine was working near Portland, Oregon... now it's turned off again. It worked well for the few days that I had it.

I'm in Chicago and just tried using this for the first time and got a prompt to call AT&T. I'm on an iPhone 5 with an original iPhone unlimited plan. Was this shut down?

Just Confirmed with AT&T

Today is December 14th. I just had an on-line chat with an AT&T representative. She confirmed that within 8 to 10 weeks we will be able to use FaceTime-Over-Cellular. This even applies to those of us who have grandfathered in unlimited data plans!!

I believe FT over cellular is market specific. I was out of town this past week visiting a relative in Ft Lauderdale went only with my 4s. I had a good solid 4g signal on my 4s yet I could not FT over cellular.

I returned to Chicago and I was unable to FT over cellular. then I turned FT off and rebooted the phone. After the phone came back on I turned FT back on and I was back to being able to FT over cellular. Ymmv

Since you're on a tiered data plan, you're capable.

The ones without it seem to be those of us with the grandfathered Unlimited data plans.

Look back through the messages here, quite a few grandfathered in plans are still working. I am grandfathered in and I just rebooted my phone and now it works. Not sure what happened today because it has been rebooted recently and it was off until I just tried it.

EDIT : Worked for a bit then stopped working and now back to "Off".

Facetime Over AT&T Cellular (Unlimited Plan)?

I believe I read that AT&T was starting to allow Facetime over cellular if you have an unlimited plan? Don't know if I dreamed it but from what I remember, people were starting to see that they could use FT without having a regular plan. Mine says I need to have an eligible data plan so I can only use it over WiFi. My daughter's phone is on the 3GB plan so she can use her's anywhere.

Yes AT&T has allowed it with unlimited accounts. But I'm having trouble contacting AT&T customer service to get my issue of not being able to FT over cellular resolved.
