Looks like you need a shared Data plan to use it. So if I want to use it I need to dump my unlimited plan and go to 20gig shared plan for $40 more a month. AT&T you stink! No changing here...
3G unrestrictor isn't needed anymore & couldn't be used anyway if you upgraded to iOS 6. I'm sure there will be some sort of jailbreak app or tweak when the jailbreak is available whenever that could be.If you insist on doing Facetime with WiFi, and don't have the Shared Data Plan, consider Tango. Great alternative. Or, if jailbroken, just use 3G unrestrictor.
Still won't work on unlimited, though. It will work on tiered data plans, and there is no reason for it not to. I can't see any reason, other than greed, to not let people use their 2 or 4 gigabytes of data they are paying for however they want.Looks like AT&T pissed off enough people that they had to rescind their policy of requiring a shared data plan for FaceTime over cellular!
I updated as soon as it was available. I figured the odds of them realasing a 6.0-only jailbreak weeks (likely) after 6.0.1 came out were slim to none, despite musclenerd recommending staying on 6.0. Now if they were close, I might have stayed put, but 6.0 was pretty buggy so I would have needed more concrete evidence that it was necessary. We'll see, but I'd be very surprised to see a jailbreak for the iPhone 5 that doesn't work on the latest firmware. The last one actually required the latest firmware.Nothing at all? I was reading not to upgrade to 6.0.1 but too late for me, I already did.
