    According to a report on AppleInsider today, iPhone 4S users who have downloaded the latest iOS 6 beta, version 3, have found an error message that has prompted some to think that AT&T and its fellow carriers could be intending to charge for the use of FaceTime video chat on 3G. The find was reported by iDownloadBlog, which discovered the following notification, which only appears when the user tries to use FaceTime on AT&T’s 3G network:

    AppleInsider says that the message only appears on AT&T, and not on Verizon. AT&T has issued a statement on the matter, but it doesn’t give much away ahead of the launch of iOS 6, simply stating that it is “working closely with Apple on the new developer build,†and will “share more information with our customers as it becomes available.â€

      I will send my screen shot, this is odd because I am running beta3 also and have AT&T
      And I don't get this message, in fact I just used FaceTime last night with my wife, which is also running ios6 beta 3

      Very strange

      It might be false, but it is not hard to believe that the carriers want to charge for sending video over their path ways. It's a data hog. Frankly, I see little reason to use facetime over cellular since wifi is nearly everywhere.

      Only Developers (who pay for the right to do so) can install the beta of iOS 6.
