    FaceTime on Unlimited Choice?

    Just curious if anyone knows whether FaceTime has been blocked on the new Unlimited Choice Plan?

    Speeds are capped at 3Mbps and Video is capped at 1.5Mbps, same specs as the new GoPhone Unlimited Plan. It has been verified that FaceTime has been blocked from the GoPhone unlimited plan. Is the same true for the post paid Unlimited Choice plan?

    It has been verified by:
    • one person having problems?
    • or multiple people?

    I didn't realize carriers could block FaceTime.

    It has been spread as a rumor over on the gophone forum, it has not been sourced and verified. If it has been, please point out that source and verification.

    FaceTime on Unlimited Choice?

    I don't know about GoPhone but I remember on the OG UDP from way back in the day they did block FaceTime over cellular. I think the block was lifted when LTE came out though...

    There were people having problems with the hotspot working when switching to Unlimited Plus, didn't mean it was a plan problem. I find it a little hard to believe if everyone has this issue that there aren't more people squawking about this...

    I've seen the posts where some have gotten the hotspot working
    And other saying the hotspot isn't
    Allowed. Even the fine print says that hotspot isn't Allowed.

    It would be helpful if someone from ATT could verify if FaceTime over cellular works on Unlimited Choice and GoPhone Unlimited plans.
