Even if AT&T ultimately decides not to block FaceTime for deaf users on its TAP plan, the company’s plans will still hurt deaf and hard-of-hearing customers. Why? Because the company will still block mobile FaceTime for the people we talk to — our friends and family members who are iPhone users and know ASL, but who are not deaf themselves and thus do not qualify for the TAP plan. The point of having a mobile phone is the ability to be in touch anytime, anywhere — not to have to plan ahead and hope Wi-Fi is available wherever we land.

Time to team up and send a loud message.

Before it was #captionTHIS, now it’s #LeaveFaceTimeAlone. Text every Deaf user you know from all around America, colleagues, coworkers, classmates, families and acquaintances, to unleash an all out revolution on AT&T – this message is LOUD AND CLEAR!

USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO OUR ADVANTAGE! Post, share, tweet, and/or retweet! Copy/paste below, or use your own words with this hashtag – #LeaveFaceTimeAlone. And post it on AT&T’s Facebook page, tweet to @ATT.

Twitter: @ATT is violating Net Neutrality and FaceTime blocking hurts the Deaf! http://bit.ly/U0NZEw #LeaveFaceTimeAlone
