AT&T still under fire despite loosened FaceTime restrictions
AT&T recently opened things up for those that were not on a shared data plan but on individual tiered data plans to use the feature. However, it appears that customers on the legacy “unlimited” data plans are not allowed to take advantage of the feature and Free Press is on its virtual soapbox to get the word out.
Launching a new on-line sounding board of sorts, Free Press has a new initiative titled, AT&T: Your World. Blocked. It allows AT&T customers to share their thoughts on the issue and in a short period of time, nearly 13,000 customers have already chimed in, some with quick one-liners, others with a bit of thought put into their comments and others that compare their data to onions on a hamburger.
Free Press is inviting any and all AT&T customers to share their thoughts on the new initiative.

Still waiting for a law to pass that makes it illegal for the Carriers to charge for stuff like tethering thats already built into the device when you buy it.

Haha poor stupid at&t customers can't use full potential of their pathetic ios device, glad to be with t-mobile with truly unlimited data on a Galaxy note II

Tmobile is the best only $70 a month for unlimited everything, no contracts no throttling. Wonder if that will change once they start turning on their LTE networks.

Nope according to the ceo there's enough spectrum for unlimited data lol

Most T-Mobile smartphones now have 1900mhz built within. Despite T-Mobile transforming most 1700mhz to LTE, there'll be plenty of 1900mhz to go around for the HSPA+. In two years I'll be going unlimited LTE with T-Mobile as well.

Facetime is junk anyway. Sure it is built in, but it is laggy,.choppy, restrictive to other apple users, and there are better free alternates out there.

Actually, I have found FaceTime to be less laggy than both Skype and Oovoo. But if you just want a reason to complain about Apple, go ahead...
