Att only allowing facetime over 3/4G on shared everything plans only
So att announced today that with the new upgraded features in IOS6 is facetime over 3G.
Now in order to do that you need to change to their everything shared data plans.
Crazy what they make us do to get the latest and greatest. Here's the article.

It was reported a while back that AT&T was going to do something like that. To be honest, it doesn't seem like such a big deal to me. Moving to the everything shared plan has been great for me at Verizon. Now I don't have to pay extra for using the hotspot feature.

i believe it is the same as verizon. i already have unlimited texts so thats not a biggie and who still makes phone calls, haha
either way im glad it will work out for you but after looking into it i dont think it will benefit me. the tethering i have a china telcom os on my blackberry 9900 so i can tether now thanks to it being on os 7.1.
not an iphone user so i have a blackberry 9900 and a playbook. with the bridge feature you really dont need tethering to surf the web on the playbook. if i were to get an ipad then id have to turn on my hotspot in the options.

Yes I'm officially done with AT&T. I get out of the Army in two weeks and I wasn't going to use my orders to cancel my plan with At&t but now I am FOR SURE. They are robbing customers blind it's ridiculous. They make you pay for every little thing.

I am considering jumping ship to Verizon after 5 years with good ol' American Telephone and Telegraph. Not because I am unhappy with their policies and service level, but more because my company pays for verizon phone service. With their LTE available where I live and travel to, I can use simultaneous voice and data. However with AT&T I am able to get a new iPhone each year, every year........and I don't want to lose that. Hmmm......

Lots of people aren't happy with Sprint's spotty coverage. Their plans are super cheap, but you get what you pay for.

What gets me with the family data plan is that you have to pay for the data package AS WELL AS a per-device fee monthly... bump the plan charge a few bucks and drop the per-device charge (a la family text plan) and I'll consider family shared data... but even with 5 smartphones, I'd be paying more each month for less data (3 of 5 are unlimited data)...
Otherwise, no thanks. I can live without FaceTime over 3G... (or jailbreak and use one of the 3G apps).

If you'll look at the Sprint coverage area for Memphis and the surrounding areas, you'll see that everything is allegedly covered. There are no dead spots on the map.
It was still showing in the coverage area where I bought my house. Ha. Yeah right. Over half of the phone calls I ever got went straight to voicemail. If I was doing anything on my phone - YouTube, Internet, Emails - it went to voice mail. People just quit calling me and texted me instead asking me to call them because my service was so poor that I'd say 1 out of every 6 phone calls would actually go through.
It's not a plan to fail thing, it's a you get what you pay for with their cheap service. Yeah Verizon costs more but I've yet to find a dead spot - even in the Corn Patch which is about as remote as you can get. My closest neighbor is over half a mile away. And even better - if I'm streaming something on my phone like when I'm in the barn mucking stalls and I bring my iHome out, calls come through. Never did on Sprint.
As for the microcells, I'm sure they work, but you need to route them through your Internet which I don't have at home. I cant justify forking over $80 a month to Time Warner for Internet only which is what they were charging me every month until I told them to shove their modem up their a**.
And to keep this on track since it is the AT&T forum, the ex has AT&T and gets okay service at my house.
