Is there a way to override the carrier restriction by modifying the carrier.plist to remove the AllowsVoip so that it appears. I am on a temp assignment to the UAE and got my phone replaced by the apple store here which is a local version without facetime. Would a backup/restore with the carrier.plist work? I was thinking of trying out the manual firmware and then restore on this phone but not sure if that's going to work. My previous phone had facetime and it worked well. Any tips would really help. I'm on beta 9.2.1. I hope the jailbreak comes out soon.
