  1. iMassages is blocked too? but it working on the iphone 4g? why not in Iphone 4s?

    • iMessage is a feature of iOS5. Having iPhone4 or iPhone4S doesn’t matter.

      For me with iPhone4 @ STC sim, it doesn’t work. So, my belief, iMessage is not for KSA. Even my iPad2 can’t run iMessage.

      Anyone correct me if I’m wrong.

    • iMessage is working (STC SIM, Mobily iPhone 3GS). I knew it is working with STC iPhone 4 as well.

    • iMessage is working (STC SIM, Mobily iPhone 3GS). I knew it is working with STC iPhone 4 as well. Any way you need wifi or 3G internet to use iMessage

    • I don’t know why does it not work with me. It starts trying with iMessage, tries tries tries then something fails and the message is sent via SMS. Any idea?

    • @Malik: Most probably the person you’re sending the iMessage to doesn’t have iOS5 or is in an area without Wi-Fi or 3G reception.

    • Ahan! That’s the catch! Now I got it why yesterday it worked with me for the first time ever.
      Many Thanks Omar!

    sounds great, but without FaceTime and the iMessage support, i mean why wait for them to lunch officially on the 16th, afterall its available on Apple Premium Resellers in the kingdom. One thing, off the thread: Are they going to lunch the Apple Online Store in KSA, i read it hear before that it will be lunch on December, that is after the UAE’s Apple Online Store has been lunched…

  8. I just got mine from Saletab.com – their price is good and customer service is very friendly.
