    How will I be able to FaceTime on the iPad. Will a shared data plan be available on the iPad?

    If you don't have anything helpful to say, you should keep your mouth shut.

    I have my iPad's on the Verizon Share Everything plan, and I hope that when iOS 6 releases that the iPad will FaceTime over cellular as well. Being that the phone is supposedly getting that ability I would think that the iPad would too.

    As noted above, FaceTime is always available via Wi-Fi.

    I understand I can use wifi. I just wanted to know how it would work if AT&T only allows it via their shared data network.

    Currently if you can tether your iPad, iPod touch or even the iPhone to any Mobile HotSpot (or MiFi), then FaceTime over a cellular network works just fine.

    I have the Nokia Lumia 900 and can create a Mobile HotSpot (which I have) and I have tethered my MacBook Pro and my friend his iPhone 4 and we have been able to FaceTime (not each other) without restrictions, and when I had an iPhone 4 I did the same with my iPod touch.

    So I don't see how they can stop you going forward unless you have that shared data plan.
