      Hi ther,

      I am in Saudi Arabia and just got iPhone 4 from Mobily the authuraized reseller. The phone came with 4.0.2 and face time is working fine, yet I think if I do update to 4.1 I might lose this option.

      Hello..
      This is from UAE... Facetime option is working on new iPhones. In fact it does not seem that Apple is beyond the issue of banning FaceTime, this option disappeares only when you accept the carrier settings update which is being sent to all iPhone users.
      Ignoring carrier's updates keeping the option alive!

      Will update further if any news comes up regarding this topic.
      Thanks to iPhoneHacks.

      Hey Am From Qatar . FAceTime is not Available on my Iphone 4 iOS 4.0.2 Even when I upgrade it I was thinking that it might fixed but apparently not . Even though I thoink that we can Hack this Isue when a jailbreak for iOS4.1 is available ( a few days later according to spirit.org ) . But I think That Face Time Is disabled when you accept the carrier setting so I dont know REally what is the matter ...

      Weeks ago I bought an AT&T locked iphone from US for 800$ with firmware version 4.02. It now sits inside my drawer waiting to be unlocked.

      Now mobily is selling it in Saudi Arabia for $562.

      I was a little too impatient.

      Hi, may seem a bit late to post to this topic but iPhone 4 bought from UAE factory unlocked did not have FaceTime feature from 4.0.1 / 4.1 / or even 5.0.1 updates. This is not good at all :|Still searching for a way to have this cool feature and the other new one (hotspot) on my iphone. Hope to hear something new on this.
