Verizon will allow FaceTime over Cellular for all rate plans
Apple iPhone 5. In the statement, Verizon said "customers wanting to use FaceTime on their iPhone 5 can do so using any Verizon Wireless data plan allowance." As for Sprint, the nation's third largest carrier will side with Verizon on this issue.
Somehow, we get the feeling that AT&T expected Verizon to join them in using FaceTime over Cellular as a way to convert more grandfathered unlimited accounts into shared data plans. Instead, the carrier is all by its lonesome on this issue which brings up a big question. How long will AT&T keep up this facade before giving in and joining the other two carriers?

There's one big difference here though. Verizon forces people to be on their shared plans, while AT&T does not. AT&T said you must be on a shared plan to use Face Time, which is the same thing as Verizon. You're just forced onto a shared plan with Verizon so their can't be a choice of which plan to have.
