    It's probably due to their dislike on all voip services and their control on the Internet. Funny how it works on my Brit iPhone and not the one I bought yesterday :s

    Do you know how RACIST that is??? sorry but before you start blabbering IGNORANT nonsense try and educate yourself about all the area of the middle east, and not just focus on the Racist Stereotyped stupidity!

    Or hold on, maybe you, and others like you that has been making such comments don't even have the brain capacity to get educated!

    Sorry ModMyI, but such offensive comments are just NOT AT ALL acceptable!

    Buddy, the cellular network where you are at might be "Garbage" as you mentioned, though lets just be on the record that this is not the case ALL over the middle east, not to forget having some of the biggest Network Providers in the world are actually running out of the ME area.

    As for monitoring, again, this is not the case all over, UAE had that issue, but then again the ME is NOT just the UAE.

    I cannot believe how some people can be just so ignorant about such matters, and bluntly comment without actually knowing what they are talking about.

    Sorry pal, I do not mean to have it personal about your comment or even towards you personally, though in general, some of the notes which have been just dumped on this Thread has been just very offensive and ridiculous.

    Bummer. Think of how excited insurgents would be if they could see the face on the suicide bomber as they press the "go button".

    Ok, bad joke....

    "Do you know how RACIST that is???"

    Actually it's not. That is one consideration of allowing facetime over there. And it is a common practice. It's not racist to comment about an accepted and common activity.

    "As for monitoring, again, this is not the case all over."

    If you believe that, you're a fool. there is surveillance every where in every country. The middle east is actually almost as tight as China.

    So, from what I can see you're just mad that someone generalized a little. I'll tell you what, you want to stop the racism and sarcasm and satire. Rise up against the psychos that are terrorizing the rest of the world and start playing nice with the rest of the world and it might stop.

    The remarks which were made are not at all acceptable come on, such generalisation makes it as if all the Middle East forces women to be covered! You said it is a common practice, can you please show me solid information on where it says that that "all" the middle east has that?

    No my friend I did not say that monitoring is not present, heck I live in a country where such a thing is a standard, but I meant and as a clarification, I did not say the monitoring is not present, but baring of services such as BBM or FaceTime is not present in all countries in the ME region!

    I second agree on the stopping of terrorism, yes of-course that is something out of the question!!! But the point and whole subject did not have to do with the terrorism issue or even the relevance of this to that, it was about the comments stated that the Whole of the ME region has such discrimination against women and for that FaceTime was not present when the IP4 was launched!!

    Wow this got way off topic. Honestly people, this is the Internet, the great equalizer, no one knows anything about you unless you let them. So lets not get into BS like this on a Iphone forum of all places. If ignorant comments are made on the Internet then you should automatically assume at least one of three things. It's a immature child, it's a troll, or it's a dumb redneck. You will certainly not change their opinions on this forum, if anything you will just fuel them. Always remember, you can't fix stupid...

    HAHAHAHAHAHA ..... I'm really annoyed how Nazi-esque apple is becoming - I had a lot of respect for them initially for the revolutionary products but now they're really not doing anything special for ex. - the iphone 4 really doesnt have anything "new" per se in it - all the technology is atleast a year if not more older, its just in a pretty package

    Stop all the rude comments now.

    This is not about races or culture this is just about a feature that is missing. Stop bringing culture or race into this discussion in an insulting/misunderstanding manor.

    This may just be a pause due to a government issue. Wifi is not allowed in all countries either for cell devices. They have to be cleared. This may be just one of those hurdles.

    If anything bring legitimate discussion to the thread and not racial/cultural differences.

    I read somewhere that it is the limitation placed by Telco which prevents the Facetime but don't quite understand that. I thought as long as you have internet connection, Facetime could work.

    I think in any county there are divergent views on any issue, and what gets iimpoemented depends on who has the upper hand on that particular issues. Perhaps at this point in time, the group that are more conservative on the issue of covering up women's face gets their way on Facetime. Just a guess.

    Has your friend updated since he bought it? That seems to be where the problem is. If they update away from the stock firmware it came with it takes it away. If they set their region to the US then it comes back.
