    Unhappy Facetime button gone!!!

    I had the original Iphone which was jailbroken and just got the Iphone 4. I synced it to my Itunes and everything was messed up on it. I tried to restore it to manufacture settings and everything is back to normal except the facetime button. The facetime button is no longer there and is now the "hold" button. What should I do???

    Also, If I sync my old phone to my bf's laptop, and then try to sync the NEW iphone will this help? Will I be able to get my info and not his?

    Your facetime slider is off..its under settings>phone>. As far as syncing goes when you sync for the first time it will ask if you want to set it up as a new phone or restore as your boyfriends. Simply select setup as new.
    iPhone4 keeps me in touch with my woman. Whats more important? Nothing.

    I don't think I ever had the facetime button. I bought 2 new iphones.. one is mine.. one my sons.. his has a button and has the option to facetime in contacts. Mine does not. I did check settings>phone>facetime and turned it on. I called the at&t store.. they said they had gotten several calls like this.. and they were told to log into itunes..sync and it should come back.. none of this has worked..

    Try restoring. But before you do that try this:

    Settings>General>Reset>Reset All Settings

    After that make sure your Facetime slider is on.

    Make sure your on a strong wifi, and make sure it can connect. Just because you can see the Wifi bars on your status bar doesn't mean that wifi is working for you. Open up Safari on your iPhone and try to load a page to make sure.

    I have not been able to facetime for so long, and couldn't figure out why! This worked perfectly, and made me feel very stupid. Thank you SO much!!!

    After a reset on my iphone 4 I too lost facetime facility. The following solved it for me.
    Settings > General > network. Turn 3g off.
    Settings > phone. Turn facetime off (this step may not be necessary)
    Checked that facetime was still missing (replaced by hold button)
    Settings > phone. Turn facetime on.
    Facetime button had reappeared.
    Turned 3G back on, facetime button remained.

    Just got my 4S and after setting it up I notice I too have no facetime icon even though it is listed under settings. I have did all that gwenfromorpington suggested.
    Ok this may be strange, I have facetime under the settings menu and I also can go into contacts and do facetime from there to my Ipad but I have no Facetime icon on my new Iphone 4s. There is one on my Ipad2. Is it possible there is no Facetime Icon on the 4s. Can someone help me.
