In the wake of AT&T’s refusal to clarify whether or not it will charge its customers an added fee on top of their data plans in order to use iOS 6’s FaceTime over cellular feature, competing carrier Sprint has made its stance known. “We are committed to our unlimited data and that means not charging for data consumption based on the application,” a Sprint spokeswoman told the Wall Street Journal. While AT&T claims it is “working closely with Apple” on the developer preview for iOS 6, Verizon representatives have declined to comment on the matter. As noted in the report, the wording of the FaceTime over cellular message is very similar to the alert that appeared in past developer betas foreshadowing AT&T’s decision to charge an extra fee for the Personal Hotspot feature.
