iPhone 4: Enabling and Disabling FaceTime

Apple’s iPhone 4 includes a feature called FaceTime that lets users voice chat over Wi-Fi networks. The feature is on by default, but you can disable it if the idea of video chatting isn’t your thing.

To disable FaceTime, do this:

  • Tap Settings on your iPhone 4.
  • Tap Phone.
  • Tap the FaceTime slider to change the setting to Off. Tapping the slider again with reenable FaceTime.

Disable FaceTime in the Phone settings

FaceTime uses the front-facing camera in the iPhone 4 for video calls. While seeing the people you’re talking with can be a cool thing, there may be times when you want to make sure other people can’t see you, which makes the disable option very welcome.
