MiTime was just released by PushFix folks to activate FaceTime on iPhone 4. This app does not come for free, and will allow iPhone 4 users on unofficial carriers to activate FaceTime on their phone.

It costs $6 at the moment. After purchase, you will have to follow some instructions to activate it.

How to Activate FaceTime on iPhone 4 with MiTime

These instructions were given on the MiTime.info website that you have to follow to activate FaceTime on iPhone 4 after purchase of MiTime.

You do not need to touch the FaceTime® toggle in Settings -> Phone and should not need to change it ever again. If you turn off FaceTime®, just run MiTime again and it will re-enable it the proper way

Step 1: IF you are outside the US, check your phone # in Settings -> Phone. Your phone number must be correct and should have the + symbol at the front of it. You should NOT continue unless your phone # is exactly the one that you entered on the purchase page of MiTime.info

Step 2: Install MiTime from their repo via Cydia

Step 3: Run MiTime and verify you are authorized – If your phone # matches, you will be.

Step 4: If it says “Ready for activation” and has an “Activate” button, you are ready to use a credit to activate.

If it does NOT say “Ready for activation”, leave it at the this screen until it resets FaceTime® and re-springs (2 minutes). After re-spring, unlock the phone and within one minute it should warn you about costs – IMPORTANT–>click OK. If it doesn’t warn you or does not reset, see the troubleshooting tips below.

If it says “Activated” you can stop here. It will back up your FaceTime® activation for later recovery.

Step 5: If you are ready, tap the Activate button and follow the prompts. Only send one activation request and wait for up to 15 minutes. It should only take 1 minute, but don’t waste your activation credits. If it doesn’t activate after 15 minutes, eject and re-insert your SIM. Wait 1 minute and then reboot.

Step 6: If it says the request was sent, stay on this screen. Within 1 minute usually, you will see it change to Activated.

Step 7: You are done. Once it shows Activated, it has saved your token and FaceTime® is fully enabled.

Step 8: The app can be used to fix almost any FaceTime® problem in the future just by running it.

NOTE: Now if by any chance FaceTime gets turned off from Settings -> Phone or anywhere, don’t turn it on manually. Just run MiTime and it will do the job for you!
