Default Etislat little lady

Hi All,

For a while now whenever I call out I have a little arabic lady speak to me - no idea what she is saying and the message isnt given in english- anyone any idea what she might be telling me? This started around Christmas.

How do you know she's little? Quite a few of them are rather large.

What do you mean by 'call out'?

Does this happen when you make calls from a landline?

But are you able to then make the call? i.e. if you wait you are connected to your intended number? if yes then how many seconds does the message run for?

The easiest way to find out what she is saying is to just walk in any of the shops in a mall and hand over the phone with the recording playing to a sales person (most of them are required to know basic arabic as a job per-requisite I was told) or maybe someone in your work area who might know some?

It's about 30 seconds and then connects

Good idea batman regarding asking an Arabic speaker- I have some of them so will get to the bottom of this- obviously my common sense has evaded me at the moment!

I'm amazed that you thought a bunch of british expats could tell you what she was saying

Bongoman- well I thought this might be a common thing and someone may have already had the answer? It's not like I have written the Arabic and asked for someone to translate it.

Meow- no chance- if it was bugged I'd either be in prison or deported already!

You need to register your phone. My friend had the same thing, it's about registering numbers. I know no more
