    Just discovered FaceTime over cellular is blocked on the new unlimited plan!

    I was bummed when I found out hotspot doesn't work, but I just discovered FaceTime over cellular is blocked too. That's a blast from the past. http://imgur.com/ragt2Np

    They used to block it on the grandfathered unlimited when FaceTime first came out, weird they are bringing it back.

    Why would gophone block facetime? Isn't it using data similar to watching videos or browsing webpages? Does it have to do with video download max of 1.5Mbps or possibly upload speeds?

    Check in Settings>Cellular to see if cellular data use for FaceTime is enabled.

    Wow, blocking Facetime is pretty huge.

    Hope AT&T reconsiders that obtuse rule.
