East Rutherford, NJ. Actually drove from central jersey all the way to NYC and it worked fine thinking it was geographically limited. It's probably being rolled out by user

Hasn't 3G FaceTime on AT&T been enabled for all LTE devices regardless of data plan since December? The only devices that would see a change from AT&T's new policy would be 4S users on iOS 6+ with unlimited data.

At the iPhone hacks section.

Nope, my i5 on unlimited data hasn't had that option available at all.
It just appeared about a few days ago.
It was for all LTE devices but not unlimited iPhone data plans.

I wouldn't call it completely available until all applicable iPhones have it. There are a number of people using the 4 and 4S that don't have it and won't until the end of the year.

In short, works for you =/= works for everyone.

I went to check on mine today, just because of this thread. Not that I ever use it, but my interest was piqued. Interestingly, it was already set to use mobile data. Strange. :confused:

Mine too! Can't test it since no one I know is awake, but that's exciting. Far more useful now, I think.

Same here. The "use cellular data" option for facetime on my iPhone was always switched off by default. When I would try to switch it on in the past I'd get the message saying I needed to switch to a tiered plan.

I see this morning that it is now switched on by default.

Same here. Just looked and seen it was not only available (not grayed out) but also was turned on. Before, its been off and disabled.

Just tested it out and it is working for me as well as two of my co-workers on unlimited data. :)

I doubt it.
Hope they follow Tmobiles approach on subsidies and lower the montly premium on customers with paid off devices.

That would be nice. However, I'm not sure they will do that under the "AT&T" brand. They are playing with the idea using their own MVNO, AIO.
