AT&T may be planning to charge iPhone users extra for FaceTime over Cellular capabilities, according to a new report. Citing a new alert that appears in iOS 6 beta 3 warning users that in order to enable FaceTime over cellular, they must contact AT&T, 9to5Mac reports that it appears AT&T is planning to charge extra for the feature, as they do for Personal Hotspot access. AT&T provided a statement for the report, which reads, “We’re working closely with Apple on the new developer build of iOS6 and we’ll share more information with our customers as it becomes available.” Notably, 9to5Mac was unable to bring up the same error message when enabling the FaceTime over Cellular feature on a Verizon iPad; instead, the feature enabled without issue. Apple announced FaceTime over Cellular last month as one of the new features coming in iOS 6.
