against the law to do this? i could be totally wrong, but i thought that providers couldn't discriminate against certain types of data traffic on their networks

No it's not against the law... It all has to do with the fact that it's "preloaded" onto the phone. It's not preloaded on iOS therefore it will work. It's because of the way ATT has their network set up, you have to be on a currently offered tiered data plan and have your acc enabled for facetime over cellular before you can do it over the cellular data network.
