FaceTime over cellular confirmed by Verizon for iPhone 5

As you may or may not recall from the recent iPhone 5 announcement from Apple, the new iPhone was claimed to support FaceTime video calling over cellular networks, although it wasn’t clear for which networks.

Verizon has since confirmed that FaceTime on the iPhone 5 will be available to customers on any of their data plans.

This is in contrast to what some other carriers are offering, such as AT&T, who are requiring iPhone 5 users to sign up for a new Mobile Share plan in order to use FaceTime over anything other than WiFi.

Verizon’s announcement, of course comes with the added caveat that data restrictions will apply, depending on the type of data plan you have, so you’ll have to keep an eye on your data cap.
