Though iOS 6 is in beta 3, AT&T had been reportedly working with Apple to work on the particular feature. This was confirmed when a message popped up in iOS 6 Beta 3 after the network settings were reset, reports 9to5Mac.

However, according to Techcrunch, AT&T’s CEO Randall Stephenson responded about this rumor and said that it’s too early to talk about pricing.
