One of the killer announcements about iOS 6 was that it would allow for using FaceTime over 3G, but a screenshot from the iOS 6 developer beta implies that this feature won’t be free on AT&T, reports 9to5Mac.If it does end up costing money, the speculation is that AT&T is trying to recoup some of the income it may have lost to iMessage in text messaging fees.

“We’re working closely with Apple on the new developer build of iOS 6 and we’ll share more information with our customers as it becomes available.”
