    Like a normal iPhone user i was eager to update my iPhone 4 to iOS 5. Previously i had restored my new iPhone 4 from my iPhone 3gs....the only problem was that the FaceTime app did not and still doesn't show up on my iPhone 4....So when i decided to upgrade to iOs 5 i figured i would try to set up as a new iPhone to see if the FaceTime app showed up... and it did not.... but the problem was that because i didn't change the name of the iPhone... it backed up (nothing) over my old back up (which had about 300 apps (90 percent of which i don't use) categorically stored in 32 folders-took a lot of work!). I gasped... and panicked... because i didn't want to go through the long process of arranging my apps again. Well.... because i had previously chosen to back up my iPhone with iCloud (until i switched back to backing up on my computer), my apps are currently being restored on my iPhone even though the back up isn't on my computer... but on iCloud... Somehow it worked and I'm happy....! Thanks so much iCloud and iOS 5

    Facetime App

    The iPhone 4 doesnt show the FaceTime icon (unless you JB).
    FaceTime is built into the OS on the iPhone. :confused::eek::p

    Under contacts when you call someone. you can then choose whether you want to just "call" or "facetime" call them. It requires it being turned on in the settings though. And I think you need to be on Wifi

    He's right. On the iPhone there is no FaceTime app, only the option to FaceTime when calling people or when viewing contacts.
