AT&T has announced it won't charge users extra for cellular FaceTime calls -- if they are on the network's new Mobile Share plan.
FaceTime is Apple’s video calling feature, available for the iPhone and other Apple devices. AT&T said it will offer the feature as a benefit to its customers who choose to go with the new plan, which was announced last month and will launch in late August.
That's good news for customers who switch to that plan, but users who like their existing plans have a potentially difficult decision to make.
People in the second group include some of the earliest iPhone users in the United States.
During the first three years of the iPhone's existence, the device was available only through AT&T, which offered it with an unlimited data plan. AT&T stopped offering that plan in 2010.
