    I have a close friend living in Qatar that I lost contact with several months ago, when many VOIP services (such as Whatsapp) stopped working there. I have tried calling many times; they have answered twice (so I know this is still their phone and they are answering my calls when they go through) but could not hear anything I said. I have already gone through troubleshooting with my phone carrier (AT&T) and they were no help. After experimenting some more, I found that I cannot call ANY mobile device in Qatar, but landlines do pick up. I understand that the primary issue at this point may be with the service providers in Qatar; I have reached out to them but received no response. I have tried everything I can to improve my connection and am certain my connection is good. Because I cannot get in contact with my friend, I have no idea what methods they have tried. I would appreciate any information or tips anyone can give me!



    Hello Rachel,

    I have done some research and, indeed, there seems to be an issue with VoIP services in Qatar. Regular cell phone calls should be working however. I understand you’ve made sure your connection is good, but how about, just for a test, trying to place the call to your friend’s mobile using a different US carrier? Also, have you tried messaging each other via mobile?

    Thanks for your inquiry. According to the page linked below you can’t dial internationally using your current Assist Wireless phone:
