    that repo is nt available…how can i add that mod???

  • duke

    this mod is not working..i’ve installed it and rebooted. aftr making it on..its saying waiting for activation..i neva got an sms to activate the service…btw its an unofficial carrier

    • Well since you’ve managed to get the FaceTime toggle inside Phone settings and send an SMS for activation, it confirms the mod works! The reply telling you “FaceTime activated” depends on your carrier if it allows FaceTime or not which in your case seems, is not supported!

        exactly..i have the toggle set to ON and its waiting.. i neva gt the sms. but as to the blogger, this mod will work in any country whr facetime is not supported

    does this work for an itouch4? i have an itouch4 from the UAE and dont have the facetime. does this work for the itouch4? i want to know. thanks for any info u can give me.

    • This app will enable the FaceTime toggle in Settings app so it’s worth a try. But I’m not sure how FaceTime activates on iPod Touch since on iPhone it sends an SMS which this app allows to happen even in unsupported countries

      • smittenkitten

        Okay thanks for the info. I’ll give it a try :)

  • aliiiiii

  • mooni

    Will this work in a country where facetime is allowed? But the iphone was bought in UAE. Or do i have to be in UAE for it to work?
