FaceTime available in Saudi Arabia with a workaround

FaceTime doesn’t work in Saudia Arabia by default on the iPhone or iPod Touch. It also doesn’t work in the newly minted OS X version either. It seems like Apple has excluded the UAE, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt from the list of regions , so they’ve made it quite clear that they don’t want them using FaceTime.

But, like all good geeks, some people have done some digging and found a workaround, and it’s a simple one. To thwart the FaceTime censorship in Saudi Arabia, all you have to do is select a different country while setting up your account.

How simple is that?
