No way to enable facetime on iOS7 devices from middle east without FT at the moment. Wait for the devs to update.

There is no icon for FaceTime on an iPhone.

You trigger it from your contacts in the "phone app". Pull-up a contact, press the FaceTime button!

the tweak i use on my iphone 4 running ios 6.1 will not run on my iphone 5s , 2 reasons compatability with ios 7 and 5s running 64 bit OS, only after or IF the devs update the app (from iphoneislam) will it work and people in the middle east will have a solution to the issue of governments not allowing it ....and apple agreeing with the dictators.

go to settings FaceTime make sure it is turned on and try reinstalling substrate.

Mobile substrate has NOTHING to do with FaceTime...

(24 Dec '13, 07:31) eYe-I-aïe eYe-I-a%C3%AFe's gravatar image

It does when he is in the Middle East where FaceTime is not available and he only had it due to a tweak he downloaded previously from cydia which has not been updated yet

(24 Dec '13, 10:32) Itsjustmike Itsjustmike's gravatar image

reinstalling substrate wont make a tweak suddenly be updated to work on ios 7

(24 Dec '13, 10:37) theiphoneguy ♦ theiphoneguy's gravatar image

Yes. @theiphoneguy is correct. It still has to updated for iOS 7 like a lot of other tweaks. Or until someone makes another one that does the same thing

(13 Jan '14, 13:17) ember_season ember_season's gravatar image

Has the tweak released yet....??
