I must say I was almost heart-broken when after looking for safe jail break (am a newbie) of my iPhone 4 iOS 4.2.1 … after researching for 2 weeks I finally did jail break tonight, thinking and fearing that my phone will become a brick. After doing that, though, to my dismay I checked the settings and found out that still there was no facetime option in settings (my phone is from Middle East). I was sad, suicidal, but I searched for the last time before going for duty (damn, I didnt sleep last night for this jailbreak!) and found your solution up there! THANKS A MILLION! Cant wait to facetime with my bro, and to jail break my wife’s phone too! Brilliant!

I did the same and I got FaceTime. But it still doesn’t work as when I turn it on , it says waiting for activation . And then a message regarding paying some charge to get it activated. And I accept it , but still nothing happens and still waiting for activation.
