WhatsApp is a wonderful mobile cross-platform messenger. It allows you to exchange messages and calls without having to pay.
WhatsApp is the most popular application for communications today and it is used by millions users all over the world.
Unfortunately WhatsApp is blocked in United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
Why WhatsApp is blocked in UAE?
All call service were blocked in Dubai and other emirates because VoIP services can only be offered in the UAE by licensed providers, such as Etisalat and du.
In a press statement TRA made it clear that only licensed telecom providers have rights to provide such service (free or paid).
“VOIP SERVICES ARE STILL A PREROGATIVE OF THE LICENSED PROVIDERS WHO RESERVE THE RIGHT TO PROVIDE SUCH SERVICES THROUGH THEIR NETWORKS. COMPANIES WISHING TO OFFER SUCH SERVICES MUST CO-ORDINATE WITH THE LICENSED TELECOM PROVIDERS IN THE UAE.”
Of course, their prices are not cheap.
