We’ve reported the rumors about AT&T may charge its customers for the privilege of using Apple’s FaceTime app over their cellular networks. While AT&T makes up its mind, Sprint has announced it will not charge an additional FaceTime fee to its customers.

The Wall Street Journal has published statements from a Sprint spokeswoman that the network will be keeping with its unlimited model that was originally introduced when iPhone arrived at that specific carrier.

“We are committed to our unlimited data and that means not charging for data consumption based on the application,” a spokeswoman said.

The remaining U.S. iPhone carrier, Verizon Wireless, hasn’t offered a public statement regarding cellular FaceTime charges on their network. However, according to the developer who discovered the AT&T limit barrier seen in the iOS 6 beta, that issue was no present on Verizon’s iPhone.
