FaceTime demo in my review of the iPhone 4, and wrote in asking how I had managed to turn it on. While it had just worked automatically the first time around, I was having a lot less luck with my replacement device. In the post, I'd basically voiced my frustration of not being able to answer the queries of all those who had written in, as I couldn't even figure out how to turn it on myself. "Had Etisalat blocked it?" I'd wondered.
I just saw that a comment was waiting to be moderated from a reader who had sent in a fix! Could it be? I ran over and checked it on my iPhone4 and... Hallelujah!!! It works!!!
Here is the comment:
Faraz has left a new comment on your post "The dark future of Telecom":
Have worked out a way to make Face time work..Go to Settings and then Phone..Where it says Facetime..switch it on..If it says waiting for activation..Just restart the phone by holding down the home and the power button simultaneously.. When the phone restarts..Voila!!!!! Facetime works just fine :)
Faraz, whoever you are, you really are a superstar and I'd like to thank you on behalf of myself and a whole bunch of frustrated iPhone users in the UAE!
