We just heard that Facetime over 3G and 4G would only be available on AT&T for those who choose to go with its new “Mobile Share” plans. If you have an individual plan or family plan, you will not be able to purchase or use FaceTime over 3G/4G at any price.
Shocker. But I wonder how Apple feels about this? My guess is that they’re not too happy. I imagine this would have led to one of those Steve Jobs’ mad-as-hell phone calls in the past…
As Weintraub concludes:
Yes, it is probably time to leave AT&T.
I am ready to leave AT&T in a year. The only question is who will have better LTE in St. Louis - Verizon or Sprint?
