AT&T announced in August that iPhone owners still on its unlimited data plan will have to sign-up on their new Mobile Share data plans in order to use FaceTime on its data networks. Now, legal groups such as Public Knowledge (an organization that promotes free use of the internet) have filed complaints to the FCC.

The Verge is reporting that Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman Julius Genachoswki may review complaints on AT&T’s decision to restrict FaceTime video chat services over its cell data networks. While the report states the FCC hasn’t received any formal complaint, it does suggest they have the ability to enforce legal action against AT&T’s FaceTime blocking matter.
