    Man, did you read the whole thread?

    THERE IS NO FACETIME ICON on iPhone, only in Settings.

    I swear to the god :) there is FC icon on my iphone 5 IOS 6.0.1.So, stop to make statement No FC on Iphone.

  • ckuan Level 7 (29,558 points)

    Swear to whoever you want, it won't make any difference . There is no FT icon and not FC got it.

    FaceTime icon is on iPad and iPod touches but NEVER on iPhone.

    wow. while i was looking for further proof that there is no facetime icon on the iphone i found this, it's actually one of the first to come up when googling:



    and this:



    these are some of the top results so maybe all this bad info is why people think they had a facetime icon...which they never did of course.

    OK. Whatever. The "never has been" responses sound pretty nasty to me. But what do I know. I've had my iPhone 5 for little more than a week and just decided to look for the facetime icon today.


    I can tell you this: the instruction to use the Contact app is useless.


    There is no Contact app. Or rather, no stand-alone Contact app. It's in the Phone app. The only icons at the bottom are Favorites, Recents, Contacts, Keypad, and Voicemail.


    The only Facetime Icon I see is on the list of calls. it shows the Facetime call I made to my iPhone from my IPad (and back) hoping that would wake the "missing" Facetime Icon.


    So my point is: other than a bunch of self satisfied bellowing, I have yet to see a SOLUTION provided for the PROBLEM of how to make a Facetime call from an iPhone5!

    Nevermind. (Blushing) found it.

    Darn it there is no edit. So mistakes stay posted. Plus I need to post again to add what I should have last time. Yes it's obvious but only if you look.


    So for the next guy look inking here for his Facebook Icon after finding his Contact app in the Phone app click on one of your contacts. You will see a number of icons including the Facetime Icon.

    Yes, there is edit function but the edit window closes in 15 minutes.

    Yes, There is a FaceTime ICON on the Iphone 5. If you can't see it, do what I did:

    Check Restrictions

    Sometimes family members or anybody with access to your iPhone will accidentally change settings. If the restriction settings are changed, it can limit what icons are shown on the home screen, including the Facetime icon.

    1. Select Settings > General > Restrictions.

    2. Type the passcode. If you didn’t set the passcode, ask anybody who had access to the device if they set one.

    3. Set the Facetime restriction to On. It should look like it does in the image below.

    Enable Facetime icon

    Note: Also ensure that Camera is enabled. Facetime will not work unless Camera is enabled.

    This should unhide the Facetime button on the iPhone, iPad and even the iPod Touch.


    When you activate the FaceTime icon, it sends you to your contacts. You select a contact and if you have their mobile phone listed, you will see a little FaceTime Icon that you can activate....


    I hope that this alleviates any of the hostility and confusion from earlier post.

    You are replying to a 2 year old thread. The FaceTime app was not introduced into the iPhone until iOS 7, so when this thread was created it was correct that there was NO app for FaceTime at that time.

    Did you noticed the post is a year old?
