I had been using facetime hacktivator and middlewhat for my saudi arabian/dubai based iPhone 5 to activate facetime on iOS 6.
The recent update to iOS 7 is perhaps incompatible with the current versions of these tweaks. I've emailed these devs too but no response. Can anybody create a tweak that enables facetime on these region locked iOS 7 devices?

I have also emailed Sbinger, the author of MiddleWhat, requesting updates for ios 7. Hope they add support for iOS 7 soon.

I will try backing up and restoring the region-locked iphone 5 bought from Dubai in iTunes. Hope it is smart enough to detect that I'm not in Dubai and enable facetime. Will update the progress in a while.

NOpe. It is linked to the phone's serial number. Take any phone from middle east anywhere out, whenever you restore, the software configuration is implemented using the serial number. We need some dev to figure out a tweak that enables like before.
Facetime.app is present in applications folder in the iPhone system. If I knew objective c, I'd work on it. Unfortunately we have to rely on someone else
