    Default FaceTime activation on t-mobile USA

    This is how I activated mine.

    I started with a fresh iPhone 4. Activated with my friend AT&T card than I jailbroke it and unlock.

    Step 1. Insert ur tmobile card.
    Steep 2. Install ios4 mms fix from cydia( add repo xxxxxxxxxxxxxx)
    Steep 3 reboot your phone than go to setting general=>network=>cellular network and make sure mms apn is set to wap.voicestream.com also Internet apn to Internet2.voicestream.com than reboot again.

    Steep 4 make sure u set auto lock on general to never and connect to a wifi network.
    Than go to general phone and turn on FaceTime.
    A windows will come up stating that you will be charged. It's only 20c I think for international tx.
    Leave the phone like that for 1 hr make sure you don't lock your phone and the phone is connected to wifi.

    This is how I activated 2 tmobile iPhone 4.
    I hope this works for you as well as it worked for me.

    You can see te pic I have posted on my twitter.

    The repo you posted is warez ....
    I'll take it out from your post.
    This forum does not allow piracy to be discussed here

    Firstly, there are better solutions. Your way has a random chance of succeeding and the next time you remove the SIM, the facetime activation will be deleted - meaning more international texts to get it re-enabled. The phone keeps on sending international texts until one succeeds, reports are some t-mobile users have got $20 or $40 or more international SMS bills due to this. Yes t-mobile has been crediting these back to the user (but when more and more users experience this problem, t-mobile will eventually have no choice but to pass on the charges to the end user)

    Checked the MMS fix you linked to - it is not technically warez - however that repository does host warez which is why @dtube edited it out.

    Jailbreak is legal, warez is not - nothing illegal is allowed on this site. That includes links to sites that openly host and promote iOS piracy.

    Is there any other solution to getting FaceTime to work on and activate on T-mobile USA? I have gotten it to work, but it was trial and error, and I can not duplicate the success on any other iPhone 4 I've tried. It's absolutely LUCK OF THE DRAW.

    Surely someone has figured out a way to activate or hacktivate the facetime feature?

    Yes someone has figured it out - a guy going by the name pushfix. He is developing an app/service to enable it reliably. You need to wait and be patient. T-mobile has already started to become difficult and try to refuse to pay the excess international SMS text messages that the trial and error approach requires - so you should stop unless you want to keep on paying $40 in fees each time you need to activate facetime.
