AT&T today announced that after assessing the impact Apple's FaceTime application will have on its network, it will expand the availability of the feature to the iPhone 5. Apple enabled the feature on iOS 6, which it distributed in September, but AT&T only allowed it to work on devices that subscribed to one of its mobile share plans. AT&T said that FaceTime will be enabled on all tiered data plans and Apple devices that have LTE, which includes the iPhone 5, iPad, and iPad Mini. The feature will become available in about 8 or 10 weeks. The iPhone 4 and 4S will be able to access FaceTime over cellular only if paired with a Mobile Share plan.
