Call someone with an iPhone 4 and press Facetime, its that easy. Details would help.

This is a common issue for people upgrading from the 1g or 2g iPhone. Your text plan is not configured right on your account. Customer service can fix this in 5 minutes or less. Step two is to ensure a wifi connection.

Also, There is an on/off switch under settings>phone menu. Default is off. Had me fooled for a bit!

I tried it and was successful last night. You must be on wifi, the other person must have the new phone, it takes a few (10 - 15) seconds to connect. Pretty cool as you can also switch to the rear camera during call.

As others have said, also check the setting in the settings area.

Does this only work from iphone to iphone or can you face to face with other networks?

Can some one help, I have the iphone4 currently jail/unlocked via cydia and limera1n, phone is on vrs 4.0.2 bb 1.59.00. I have turned on facetime but it says "Waiting for activation", it been 24 hours, rang the carrier and they said it can take a while to activate, Is there a problem with the unlock/jailbreak that slows this down or stops facetime? On the phone when calling I only have pause"ll" not the face time logo let ie the little movie camera. Any help
Thanks
