AT&T Taken to Task Over FaceTime Blocking
The fact AT&T has to bring up WiFi to tapdance around this...
And let's not kid ourselves - Both AT&T and Verizon are both pulling these stunts to punish customers who have grandfathered unlimited data in a sort of passive-aggressive-smiley-face-undertaker manner.
How they handle my plan is asinine-
If I want to add tethering, I'm *required* to drop my unlimited data, which is already throttled at 5GB (I'm on LTE, it's 3GB if you're on HSPA.) I can't simply pay $20.00 for an additional 2GB of tethering-only data- I have to throw out the perks of my current plan entirely. (As a result, I have a Verizon hotspot.)
Now with Facetime, if I want to use it, I have to again kill my 'unlimited' data. Even though I still face the same throttle caps, and even though Skype, Fring, etc. would consume the same data.
