A New Way To Conquer The Frustration Of Making International Calls

Because why does it have to be so difficult?

It's not always fun to dial internationally, particularly in the UAE.  

Our families are far away and trying to keep in touch can be difficult. 

Most expats can relate - you've booked the time to sit down and have a good old chat to Mum, and then, of course, something goes wrong. Your phone doesn't work, the connection is lost, or something that you just can't figure out. 

1 'Sorry this function isn't available in your country'

2 You don't have enough credit 

3 You call on post-paid plans, and it costs you a fortune

4 You (or they) can't hear properly 

5 You can't quite talk properly because there are delays in the conversation

6 They can't hear you properly so you have to shout the whole time 

7 You spend the whole conversation asking each other 'hello? can you hear me?' 

Luckily, you don't have to worry any more. WhatsCall is a new app that works in the UAE (hurrah!) and is free to use, so you can call anyone, anytime. 

It's free to download on both Android and the App Store, so get it on your phone, and start ringing around.
