We heard a rumor earlier this week that AT&T may charge users for FaceTime over their mobile network when iOS 6 has been released, although AT&T have said that they haven’t decided what they will do as yet.
One US carrier has told the WSJ that they will not charge for FaceTime over their cellular network, Sprint, and you can see the statement from Sprint below.
Meanwhile, AT&T rival Sprint Nextel Corp. (S), which still offers unlimited data to new and existing users on its network, said it has no plans to erect pricing barriers to FaceTime. “We are committed to our unlimited data and that means not charging for data consumption based on the application,” a spokeswoman said.
Verizon has not as yet revealed any details on whether or not their will charge for FaceTime over their network when it becomes available with iOS 6, as soon as we get some more information on the other carriers we will let you guys know.
