UAE blocks VoiP's. For example, Fongo is a mobile app. It provide a Canadian local phone number and free calling in Canada, but requires payment for calling overseas. iTalkBB provides a box, one side connects to an ethernet outlet from a modern and another side connects to a phone. So it can be used anywhere in the world as long as a wired internet connection is available. However, I am afraid it is also a VoiP (voice over internet Protocol) phone and not sure if it will be blocked in UAE. Does anyone have similar device and can share any experiences? Thanks in advance.
