I found this article from Apple:  

 

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5457

 

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.

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.
