    Hello Everyone,
    I'm facing with a problem on my ipad2. I bought it from Dubai and at that time I didn't know that it has some banned apps, and one of them is Face Time app.
    Is it possible to get this app on my IPad ? I'm staying and using it in Europe.
    I appreciate your kind cooperation.
    Have a great day.

    It is not possible to install FaceTime on an iPad originally purchased in the UAE. Skype will work, however.

    Thanks a lot for the answer. Anyway it is very strange that is not possible to have a full option on my IPAD. I guess it is an Apple issue to inform their costumers about this problems in order to be aware before purchasing their products.
    Great day ,

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    This is not Apples doing but is because of Government restrictions in the UAE. All iPads sold here are fundamentally different to iPads sold elsewhere and cannot have FaceTime downloaded to them because of it.

    The IPad Forum is a community of members from all walks of life and from all over the world coming together to share our experiences and to help each other learn about this wonderful piece of technology the Ipad. There is a wealth of information already here in the many threads we have so doing some searches will answer most of the questions you have. If then you cannot find the answer you are seeking then by all means post your question. There are many friendly and informed members here only too willing to help you.

    We also have our own App - It is a very simple app to navigate.
