Hi there,

I got an iPhone4 2 weeks ago, activated FaceTime with a lot of trouble (took 2 days doing all the stuff of reseting, restoring, etc...). Then I've discovered that the camera had some issues and changed the phone. From that time, I was not able to activate FaceTime on the new phone. I've reseted the network settings, and the whole settings many times, rebooted, restored, whatever. I'm living in Macao (close to Hong Kong) and I use the official iPhone 4 provider. Still, nothing happened for the past week, except I'm being charged for something like 15 international sms.

Any idea?
Is there at least any information that it's a bug being corrected (or not??)?

Thanks

    Do a hard reset and check your FT settings. If it doesn't turn on in 1 min, do a hard reset again.

    Keep doing it until it shows on.

    It worked for me.

    reference: loads of people did this and it got solved!

    Are you sure you are doing the hard reset.

    Google "hard reset facetime activation" and you will get many links with detailed explanation
