An error message discovered in iOS 6 Beta 3 has put a damper on one of the operating system's new features, which is the ability to make FaceTime video calls over a cellular data network. While AT&T and Verizon seem to be mulling how much to charge customers for such a privilege, as usual Sprint has no such issue.
AppleInsider is reporting that third-place U.S. carrier Sprint has made it clear that it has no plans to charge extra for iPhone customers to make FaceTime calls over its 3G (and perhaps soon, 4G LTE) network, even as rivals AT&T and Verizon Wireless appear to be weighing their options for potential charges for the same.
"We are committed to our unlimited data and that means not charging for data consumption based on the application," a Sprint spokeswoman told The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday.
While Verizon remains completely mum on its plans, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson has yet to confirm or deny that the carrier plans to charge for FaceTime over cellular access, claiming his company is still working with Apple during the beta period.
