    Hello,

    I have iOS 5 beta 7 installed on my iPhone 4.
    And everytime I reboot my phone, I get the facetime registration sms.

    Anyone else have this problem? or a fix for it?

    What do you mean registration SMS?

    It is a beta bugs are understandable, you should report them to Apple also.

    I mean the facetime message that says. That your carrier may charge you for facetime activation...
    That message turns up on my screen everytime I reboot my phone.

    And when I go into facetime settings, it says waiting for activation. Then it activates and it works again.

    It never was like this in iOS 4. I just got the message once, when I activatet facetime the first time.

    Could this mean that FaceTime will be available over 3G instead of just Wifi?

    I assume by "charge you" it just means it'll come out you monthly data allowance.

    No, it's simply that that the carrier may charge you for the SMS that the phone sends to activate facetime.

    How could you read facetime will work on 3g from that :S

    Because there are multiple reference to FaceTime working over 3G in the iOS 5 beta code perhaps?

    I know what the message means. But WHY does it pop up on my screen everytime I restart my phone? Thats the question I like to get an aswer to.

    You've already answered you're own question. You get the message because you have rebooted the phone so all the settings are reset therefore it is displaying it again.

    A phone reboot shouldn't trigger reactivation of facetime. Mine only re-activates when I switch sim cards to a different carrier.
