Does anyone actually use FaceTime?
AT&T customers on tiered data plans with LTE devices can already use Apple's FaceTime over mobile connections, but now the operator is spreading the love just in time for the holidays.

Never seen it used IRL outside of an office - network manager used it a couple of times to contact techs. The novelty soon wore off because it just isn't as convenient to try to hold the device and aim a camera as it is to just use an earpiece and drop back to voice leaving hands free to work. On these odd occasions they used it for troubleshooting physical things, up to the point where a network connection was established and remote desktop took over. It's got a place in the grand scheme of things, but won't be any where near first choice in many folk's lists.
