A Facebook post questioning AT&T’s restrictions on FaceTime over Cellular has gone viral, racking up more than 690,000 “likes” and more than 51,000 comments as of this writing. In a Facebook post directed at AT&T, a customer named Wynter Farmer notes her disappointment with AT&T forcing customers to switch to a more expensive, limited data plan in order to use FaceTime over Cellular on the iPhone 5. “In order for FaceTime to be used without WiFi a Family Share Plan is required. That plan has limited data. It took me a second to wrap my head around that,” Farmer wrote, noting that she currently has an unlimited data plan.

The post ends with Farmer writing, “If AT&T doesn’t delete this post please like it to show them you also think it is an underhanded, unfair and despicable way to treat their loyal customers.” The post was written on Oct. 14 and is still racking up comments and likes by the minute, illustrating that user anger over AT&T’s restrictions has not subsided.

You know what the ultimate irony is. I have AT&T and a mobile sharing plan… and Facetime over celular doesn’t even work. It will never connect.

No one seems to know why or care. In fact, looking online, it’s hard to find people who acually do use facetime over celular, so I don’t even know if everyone has this problem or just me.

@ort,

Yeah I think that’s the irony of this.  AT&T has so little respect for their customers they’ll block this because of the principal of the thing.  Despite the fact that almost nobody would ever use it anyway.  Stupid.
