    Since Facetime is an open standard that's coming to PCs are they going to block the ability to use it on the computer as well?

    All I can say is.....
    God Bless America
    England Prevails
    So on and so forth

    when jailbroken, facetime could be activated, if they enabled 3g use on iphones here, im pretty sure they can re-enable wifi and 3g there

    What is so "un-Islamic" about FaceTime that has gotten it banned in the UAE? Not that the app is a front for pornography, alcoholism, etc, but maybe the authorities in the UAE see things differently from the rest of us...

    Nothing Jailbreakin' can't fix... And really if you look at it if Dubai is considered middle east there'll be a lot of bussiness people dissapointed.

    Apple reportedly believed the technology would face roadblocks with local VoIP regulations.
