Yes.

But no FaceTime over data network for unlimited plan holders

I'm unlimited on AT&T with an iPhone 5

Exactly no facetime or tethering. I am still grandfathered into a $65 per month unlimited plan that gives you unlimited worldwide data. I travel to other countries a lot and it has saved me over $1000 i am sure.

Lol must be nice I don't travel though, I have a standard grandfather unlimited plan that I won't give up on my iPhone 5. AT&T doesn't make you give it up.

They sure try to sell you on the data share plans though......

I went to a corp store with my friend who needed a new SIM for his wife to use in the iPhone 4 we were giving her. I made the mistake of telling the guy that my wife and I had iPhones and I had unlimited data. He tried to sell me on the merits of the new data share plans. I told him no thanks, I have an iPhone 5 and said my data use will be increasing and I'll stick with my unlimited plan for 30 bucks.

Lol, I work at a third party store and we just put customers on whatever plan best fits their needs . Ill never take anyone off unlimited plan or waste my time even discussing it. I personally like old plans myself Better got 2 extra lines that I use for upgrades but are just 9.99 lines rest of the time.

Grandfathered unlimited as well, I wasn't aware that facetime didn't work with unlimited but I guess I shouldn't be surprised since AT&T is trying to get folks off it. I don't use facetime so I really don't care but I'm glad I still have my unlimited as the LTE burns through data quick! I'm not a big data user, on my iPhone 4 it would show 450-650mb per month, I just checked my usage on the iPhone 5 which I got on 9-21 and it shows 2GB! Sure I may have done a little extra surfing the first week to play with the new toy but almost 1.5GB worth extra for 1 month... I don't think so.
