The official Twitter account of du, an iPhone carrier based in the United Arab Emirates, has confirmed that FaceTime will be unavailable in the UAE when the phone launches tomorrow. “Our iPhone 4 customers won’t be able to make Facetime calls, as this feature is currently unavailable in the UAE,” the company said. In later updates, it apologized to customers who were upset that the feature had been withheld, and repeatedly said “it’s not in our hands.” TUAW notes that its report from earlier in the week suggested the feature may also be missing from iPhone 4 units sold in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, Egypt, and Yemen.
