    How to enable facetime to work on the iphone 4, using the straight talk service?

    I brought the nokia e71 phone from wall mart. Followed the steps to activate it on the iphone 4. Works perfect!! The only downfall is that facetime just cant be enabled.

    Please spreed some knowledge, if you know how to correct my problem!!

    Thanks in advance!!!

    I've used facetime on my iPhone 4 with straight talk. No extra configuration was needed than what is specified in the iPhone thread. Did you make sure you were connected to wifi? Facetime will only work over wifi.

    first facetime officially only works with Wifi but you can jailbreak your iPhone and install 3G enabler app from cydia and you can use facetime over 3G but remember it will be take alot of data for video calls and you might be disconnected if the company finds out that you are using way too much of data
    MY HOFO FEEDBACK

    all help given is free, and as is. I'd hate for someone to try and sue me for a mobile bill

    Its Great!!! Didn't get a drop call, or no service yet. Downside, FaceTime is unable to be enabled. Unless anybody knows something that i don't.

    I've used facetime and it works fine. Like others have previous mentioned, I was only able to get it to work if both iphones were connected via wifi.

    I also use Skype video calling as well and that seems simpler and easier to set up and use.

    Is Skype video only iphone to iphone or can it be iphone to android, or iphone to anything else?

    Also make sure the FaceTime feature is turned "on". And as others have said, FaceTime works only through a WiFi connection. Others have made it work on 3G by JB their iPhone and downloading an app from that JB store :-)
