    Ios 6 issues

    Has anybody had any luck using FaceTime over 3G 4G? Whenever I try to connect I get a pop up that tells me to either connect to 3G or WIFI even though I'm already connected.

    It appears that the carriers are refusing to allow Facetime over 3/4G without getting a new plan.

    Personally, I think it's none of the carrier's business how I use my data allowance. Charging extra for FaceTime over 3G/4G is nothing more than a cash grab by the cellphone companies.

    I think you should be OK with SaskTel, though. They just have a plan, and it's up to you how you use it, right? And I think it's somewhat more generous than Telus.

    Agree 100% with you on charging extra, I don't think this is an issue with all the networks from around the world though as with my provider in SA I can do FaceTime over 3G.

    I have an unlimited data plan, but I've not asked them what their policy about FaceTime over 3G is.

    While I agree with it being no business of the carriers, they are trying to manage their overworked data systems. This is just one of the many ways that they are trying to lure customers away from the old unlimited plans.

    Anybody have any luck with FaceTime over 3/4G? I have friends with the new iPhone and FaceTime works. It does not work over my grandfathered unlimited plan with AT&T. Before the ios6 update it wouldn't even let me access my contacts list while on 4G, now it does and lets me choose somebody, but no ring?

    I just had a FaceTime conversation with a friend earlier this morning. My plan doesn't charge extra for FaceTime over cellular systems. AT&T has announced that they will be charging customers a fee to use FaceTime over 3G/4G. If you haven't signed up with your carrier to allow Facebook, you won't be able to use it.
