Enabling FaceTime could potentially require 2 steps depending on your iPhone provider and Internet Service Provider, in the Middle East operators (who are also ISPs) are disabling FaceTime on the iPhone and also blocking FaceTime traffic as an Internet Service Provider, therefore the solution could require two steps:

  • The first and most important step is to enable FaceTime on the iPhone by starting Cydia add the following repo to your Cydia sources then search for “FaceTime Hacktivator” and install it. Now reboot your iPhone and then navigate to Settings –> Phone and tap on the FaceTime toggle to turn it on. Your iPhone will now send an international SMS to activate FaceTime.
  • Now if your ISP is blocking FaceTiem traffic you can evade this by running a PPTP VPN, a cheap a reliable VPN service provider (to remove internet blocks) cab ne acquired from Witopia or VPNGates or you can google other VPN service providers.

actually the ISP's here in Saudi are not blocking the Facetime app cause i have IPhone4G official unlocked from UK and i installed the application on my IMac and its working fine and great. only my friends who bought the IPhone locally from the market who are facing the problem of no Facetime app. but thanks for the info I'll try and keep u updated.
