AT&T today confirmed that it will not levy a separate charge for iPhone users who wish to conduct FaceTime calls over cellular networks once iOS 6 is widely available. However, FaceTime over AT&T's cellular network will only be available to customers using a Mobile Share plan. AT&T said, "AT&T will offer FaceTime over Cellular as an added benefit of our new Mobile Share data plans, which were created to meet customers' growing data needs at a great value. With Mobile Share, the more data you use, the more you save. FaceTime will continue to be available over Wi-Fi for all our customers." AT&T's Mobile Share plans go into effect next week. They offer unlimited voice minutes and messaging, and various different buckets of data that can be shared between multiple devices. The Mobile Share plans are best for families and small groups, and not individuals.

just something else to be worried about

why would anyone with a tiered data plan even attempt to use facetime over cellular?
stick to wifi folks
How are FaceTime sessions charged? Do they show up as a separate data amounts?
