    As we all know AT&T is limiting FaceTime over cellular to mobile share plans. However, what about single people with no family who have no reason for a mobile SHARE plan. Are they just screwed? I can't imaging a call with AT&T... "we understand that you are single with no family and no kids but if you would like to use FaceTime over cellular you must select a mobile share plan....

    Good point.

    Data share plan is not so great for folks with one phone/device.

    ATT continues to blur the lines of ethics when it comes to paying money for our data and then telling us how and which services we can use on it.

    I have a FAN account and I was informed a few weeks ago that if I use the 3GB $30 data plan I will not get a discount on my bill, but if I upgrade to the 5GB $50 plan that my discount will apply and it comes out to only $37 a month (25% discount) with tethering.

    Not bad.
    I pay $22 for unlimited data with my FAN.
    I wouldnt want to pay more to get the same 5GB of LTE data.

    I don't use anywhere near 3GB let alone 5GB and I don't tether often enough to warrant paying more, so I downgraded and kept my 3GB plan.

    When my data plan was young
    I never needed to FT anyone
    And tetherin' was just for fun
    Those days are gone

    Livin' alone
    I think of all the data that I've know
    But when I dial the telephone
    Nobody's home

    FT myself
    Don't wanna do, FT by myself anymore
    FT myself
    Don't wanna do, FT all by myself anymore
