    Hello Guys, I've 2 iPhone 4, 1 is bought from India & other one from Dubai.
    The iPhone4 from Dubai won't show Facetime ON/OFF option in settings while the one from India says "Waiting for activation"
    How do i fix this thing ? Help appreciated..

    iPhones sold in Dubai have the FaceTime featured disabled because of the internet laws in the country. All iPhones sold in Dubai do not have FaceTime.

    I have the same problem in Canada ..... FaceTime only works if you use wifi! I did hear if you jailbreak it, that fixes it?

    Jailbreaking alone does not "fix" that... you need to add an app from Cydia for that... I think the app is called something like 3G unrestrictor...

    Also, it's not broken in the first placeFaceTime has always been wifi-only by design.

    You could try this: Restore Facetime on Middle Eastern iPhone 4 Kush's Blog

    There is also something similar called FaceTime Hacktivator that might help. BUT if you are using it in a country that allows FT, you can probably get it activated via Apple or a carrier settings update. Good luck!
