Default Make Whatsapp/messenger calls from UAE

Hi Guys,
Please suggest any way that we can make audio/video calls on whatsapp and messenger from UAE, as it is restricted in the country.
Thanks

Just dial the number and ring normally. If you're worried about the cost, get lots of international minutes in your plan.

I've used ExpressVPN for some years now, always works for me. Sometimes takes a minute to connect to some locations but there are plenty to choose from. You get 3 simultaneous connections on the basic account, good for phone, laptop, tablet. Or share the account with friends/family.

Heard good things about Nord also.

You will need to be in a relatively free access location to actually sign up for any of these services as their home pages are usually blocked. You can try Hotspot Shield which is a browser based vpn and might work to get you access at least to the various sign up pages.

There are a few free good ones around, Tunnel Bear is good as you can choose which country you want to connect to. This can be useful when tryng to access geo specific servers, eg UK for BBC iPlayer . You can download from the App Store. For Android devices, OpenVPN works quite well .

Paid for VPN's are plenty, I use VPN UK, but as Martin points out, you can't connect to their sit unless through a VPN anyway.
