You are not the only one disappointed by this:

I just got off the phone with AT&T saying that I should transfer to a SHARED plan in order to use Facetime with cellular data. I also noted there is no information on AT&T website of such limitation if you are not selecting a SHARED plan. The operator at AT&T was a little rude by sayting if I am not happy with the product I can return it. I told him the product if fine but their website is misleading to the customers. He replied... "Now you are informed."
I had called AT&T earlier today and at no time they informed me of this. They even had me to call Apple Care to find out if it was a iPhone issue. Apple Care said they received many calls about the same problem and that AT&T had to activate this feature.
Of course this feature will cost more in the end with less data. (5Gigs vice 4Gigs) I don't undersand the technical reason as to why if I pay $50 for data it cannot be used over a regular plan.

I too am in the same situation, At&T is apparently attempting to get people who were gradfathered into an unlimited data plan into a more expensive tiered plan. I'm sticking with my cheaper unlimited plan, facetime was never a feature I used all that much anyway.
