You know the Face Time icon?  I have a new IPhone 4 and just did my first backup to my iMac last night and today noticed the Face Time icon disappeared from my screen.


NOW---before you try to give me the "turn it on" IS turned "ON" in settings and I have NO restriction on it in my restrictions....yes, my camera is also on and no restrictions.  Seems like that tended to be most everyone else' problem easily solved.


ANY suggestions on how to get the convenient icon back?? (Besides the pain of totally deleting my stuff to factory settings and starting from scratch.)


Thank you very much!

    No.  iphones do not have a Facetime icon, never have.


    As the manual explains, you access facetime via contacts.  Select a contact, scroll down to the facetime button.

    FaceTime is not a separate app on the iPhone.  See...
