iPhone 4 FaceTime only on WiFI?

Was wondering how come iPhone 4 can only use FaceTime over a WiFi connection? Any words?

I found this article from Apple:

It definitely cannot use Facetime over cellular, even if you had a qualifying plan.  It doesn't give an exact reason.  My guess would be either the cellular radio or the processor won't allow it.

I have a 4s and unlimited data plan and it still won't allow it. I can stream Netflix hbo tv stations and movies over cellular, even Skype! But FaceTime won't work:/

att has a press release that facetime will be available to ALL users by the end of 2013, so patience is needed at the moment.
