AT&T and FaceTime

by Justin Horn on Aug 22nd, 2012 @ 10:32 am

So AT&T responded in a blog post to the complaints about not allowing FaceTime over 3G (or 4G or whatever they want to call it now).

I wish I could actually like the big companies I spend my hard earned money on. Right now Apple is the only company that I feel good about what I get in return for my money. I feel like an abused spouse with AT&T.  The last thing that got me before this FaceTime issue was them dumping all the text plans in anticipation of iMessage. I know they are a business and need to make money, but the things they do just anger their clients.  I guess they can do it, since they know the only person I could switch to is Verizon and they are almost as bad as them.

So are they breaking the law over the FaceTime issue?
Maybe not.

Are they a bag of dicks?

FaceTime is better than I expected

Looked much than this picture shows

Sorry Chi, you aren’t cool like me

Just tried out FaceTime and was very impressed. The quality of the video was better than I thought. The VGA camera looked good and didn’t get distorted over the internet, worked flawlessly.

Also, as was discovered earlier this week, you can skip AT&T for your FaceTime calls. You can switch to a FaceTime after first making a regular call, but you don’t have to. Just look up your friend in contacts and click the FaceTime button (pictured above). This will initiate a FaceTime call without ever dealing with AT&T’s 3G voice or data. If you try to connect with someone that isn’t on an iPhone 4, like Chiyin who’s waiting for the white iPhone, you will just get a message letting you know that you are superior to them and they need to get with the times. I’m paraphrasing though, Apple puts it a bit nicer:

FaceTime Failed

Chiyin Ng is not available for FaceTime.
