    i know there are a lot of posts about this but i cannot seem to get facetime back. i have an iphone 4 with 4.0.0 on it. i jailbreaked my phone after the facetime mms fix was already applied. i havnt tried to use facetime until this morning and i noticed that the icon is missing how the hell do i get it back.

    under settings > phone facetime is turned on. i have tried turning it off and on still no facetime option. i am also connected to exchange and have the camera option enabled so how can i get facetime back? should i just upgrade to 4.0.1 since my SHSH blobs are stored?

    edit: i also installed this "fix" from http://iphonedelivery.advinux.fr/cydia through cydia still no factime.

    I would restore. I always try a restore before asking online, you have nothing to lose. Try 4.0.1

    Its not your phone, this was a bug, if you will, with the jailbreak.
    upgrade to .02 then downgrade to .01 and jailbreak, face time will reappear

    I'm on 4.0 and rely on the unlock. My SHSH haven't been saved yet (still pending) and I tried everything to get FaceTime back. Now I can't restore, nor find a working fix. My APN field is also gone but I could at least create an APN Profile with the "iPhone configuration utility" to use mobile surfing.

    Anything i can try?

    Thanks, I tried your solution but it didn't work :confused:
    There's something else, if I switch the SIM FaceTime reappears and according to this article I need a carrier update over the air (7.x). While with the replacement SIM (another carrier) I get the required Carrier 7.x, with mine there's "Carrier Unavailable". Yet It has already been working with my SIM.
    I really don't know what else I could try...

    German SIM : Simyo
    Working SIM: SFR (French)

    But as I said, the Simyo SIM worked fine 2 days ago. After that I installed quite alot from cydia. Don't know if this has any relevance, since other SIMs do work with FaceTime.

    I just put the Simyo SIM (with a MicroSim adapter) into an iPhone 3Gs and "Cellular Data Network" was there as well as "Carrier 7.0" showing in Settings -> About.

    Now I'm even more puzzled...

    I had the same problem with my I4, the facetime was gone, all I did went into my setting(on my Iphone 4), general, reset all settings, and clicked on it, it reset, I still have all my apps and all my data and it came back, no restore no headache, give it a try

    I wanted to avoid this because I have lots of individual settings. Does this option only resets of the native iphone applications or of all? Will the organization in folders be gone too? I tried resetting network settings but that didn't help.

    I just called to replace my microSIM with a new one. Maybe there's some kind of incompability with the iPhone 4.

    Ok, I got it!
    After deinstalling "forwardmsgfix 4.0" and "asCommCenterPatch" APN+FaceTime reappeared in settings -> phone. So far, so good but now I'm facing "call failed" when trying to call an other iPhone4 with FaceTime. Might be my ported number though.

    Success, finally!
    I don't know what the culprit was but that's what I did step by step:

    1) Removing "forwardmsgfix 4.0", "asCommCenterPatch",
    2) Reinstalling "base structure" from Cydia + removing "iPhoneDelivery" from Cydia
    3) Reset "Network Settings"
    4) Reboot

    Now, FaceTime button is visible and FaceTime is working :)
