Face time works as long as you activate the phone in India. I had bought a 5 and a 6 from Dubai and they both worked just fine.

Bought from jumbo. I have bought many phones from dubai and all carry warranty here in India. to be doubly sure buy from apple store online
Jumbo electronics are quite expensive in terms of price I find.

Also all official retailers here will have the AE stocks meaning no FaceTime for these devices

I bought an iPad mini 2 32GB wifi cellular here during the GITEX offers from EMax and they had only AE stocks. But got a good deal nevertheless.

For my iPhone though I definitely need FaceTime and that is a problem. Unless I risk buying from local vendors where there's no way to know beforehand where the unit is sourced from

Will Online purchase from Souq or Jumbo for Iphone will be factory unlocked and work in India?
Only for the models where Souq advertises FaceTime available but there's no place they specify the model number they're selling so you don't know where they get it from. Usually I'm guessing Singapore or Hong Kong by roughly converting the AED prices you can try to work out.

Warranty for sure I doubt will be valid in India. That's why the conundrum, else I'd have bought the phone here long ago considering the awesome savings over the India prices

That's the debate. Since apple registrations are online and product coverage is easily verifiable on their systems it's not always denied. I've known a few mates who have had their phones from the US accepted in India for service without hassles. Of course I can't say it's the norm here or that they do it in all cases but for sure a few of them have assured me they didn't have any issues with their phones being accepted under warranty.
