Middle Easterners get around iPhone 4 Facetime ban with iPod Touch 4G

Mon, Oct 18, 2010


It’s probably not all that shocking that Apple’s Facetime video chat feature is not supported in a few draconian Middle Eastern countries like Saudi Arabia, and even relatively liberal countries like the United Arab Emirates. Folks in the Middle East looking to skirt around this ban, however, can make use of Facetime on Apple’s recently released iPod Touch via wi-fi. Sort of makes you wonder what the point of the ban is in the first place given that Facetime only works via wi-fi in the first place.
