    I have the right kind of iPhone and the right kind of data plan. Unfortunately, I have little desire to use FaceTime much ;)

    iPhone 4S on unlimited. I guess I'm not any step closer than I was before. Lame.

    I used it on the ride home for fun. I reversed the camera and showed my daughter what part of my commute looked like.

    Thank you, AT&T.

    FaceTime over cellular would have been awesome for me. I was traveling for a week+ and wanted to see the GF, But the hotel wifi sucked. Had 5 bars of LTE though, still couldn't FaceTime. Ridiculous.

    What's ridiculous is FaceTime works perfectly on Straight Talk AT&T 3G. So AT&T contract users who pay $100 a month can't use Facetime cellular but Straight Talk AT&T users who pay $45 a month can use it without any restrictions. How messed up is that?
