Apple iPhone 4 Qatar and UAE: Is Missing Facetime a Problem?
Qatar and UAE (United Arab Emirates) finally got the Apple iPhone 4 this weekend with one problem; the problem we are talking about is the missing FaceTime function.
The FaceTime video chat feature is one of the main features on the iPhone 4 but it is missing from iPhone’s sold in UAE at Etisalat and du, as well as those from Vodafone Qatar. Vodafone and Etisalat are in talks with Cupertino in the hope that FaceTime post-haste be reinstated.
TUAW has reported that a few UAE denizens have tested FaceTime on their iPhones that were purchased overseas and report that it works fine, but then the problems occurs when the local version of iOS 4.1 update is installed, as soon as the software is installed FaceTime function disappears.
If you are in Qatar or UAE please do let us know if you have FaceTime problems, is Missing Facetime a Problem?
