    iPads sold in the UAE don't include FT because of government restrictions. Don't think you can add it, but you could check with Apple.

    That was something I learned about as well when I first joined. I didn't realize all the restrictions some countries have on apps. We are very lucky to be in the US where there is so much available to us!

    An option would be to open an account on the US iTunes using a gift card. There are details somewhere on this forum on how to do that.

    Your problem would be that your contacts would need to do something similar before you could spaek to them.....

    The FT app would be needed first. It's a native app, so won't find it in the app store. That's why OP would need to talk to Apple.

    If FaceTime is not an option due to local restrictions and is not included in the version of iOS installed then I would recommend looking to a third party app like Skype that can be obtained from the US apple store via iTunes gift card or US based credit card.

    Both you and family members with ipad2 or greater could then utilize the camera hardware to do what FaceTime does only through Skype or other video chat app available in the US or other iTunes stores.
