    When I open Control Centre by swiping up on my iPhone5 (IOS7) I don't see the Airdrop button, is there a way of activating it please?

    Heres a screen shot of what I see when I open Control Centre...

    AirPlay or AirDrop?

    These features can also be disabled in provisioning profiles that an operator or a company might install to allow your device on their network.

    Probably either provisioning profile mentioned above or it's disabled under the restrictions Settings -Settings/ General / restrictions
