    The security certificates for FaceTime expired on iOS versions older than iOS 7.0.4. If they want to use FaceTime at all, they must upgrade. At this time, they will have to upgrade to iOS 8.3.

    Yes, but you cannot restore to that version of iOS as it is not being signed anymore. You can only restore to the currently signed version of iOS which is iOS 8.3.

    Ya i kinda figured that knowing apple, but glad to know it involves update

    Any idea how long the 4s can be updated for?
    Tried to get her a 5s at least but she said if i did bad things will happen...

    iOS 8 may be the last version of iOS that supports the iPhone 4S. There is a small chance that iOS 9 will, but it is unknown at this time. The public will know if it is or is not supported by iOS 9 when it is previewed at WWDC in June.

    Got her talked in to letting me update the old 4s she really wasn't that thrilled but she has issues at times.

    She has a mind set not to update. That was when the new ios 7 was out and people on old phones didnt like it, but the new phones have latest update so ya.... (Talking random)

    Sure is taking issues to update, took my 6+about 30min on same network

    Hopefully this will solve my problems and fix hers


    Way off topic but i have an old account here... I am the same guy as the op..
