Do you get a "fast-busy" tone after dialling our access numbers? Then, we advise you to contact your telecom provider to check whether they block our access numbers. In case not, please fill out our fault report. My call was connected to a wrong destination (wrong country)
It is possible that you have forgotten the international prefix. Why doesn't Abroadtel recognise my entries?
Make sure that you call from a telephone with tone-dial. Double-check that the dialling option on your telephone is configured as tone-dial. Consult the instruction manual of your telephone if you need assistance. What is tone-dial?
There are two ways to call: via pulses or tone-dial (technically called Dual Tone Multi-Frequency). Servers only understand tone-dial. If you press a key on your phone pad you should hear a peep-tone. Why does it take long time until my call is connected?
Due to the high demand for our special cheap international calls at peak-times, the routing of the call may take some time until you get connected, particularly for mobile destinations. We advice you to hang-up and try again later if after a short period your call is not connected. We are doing our utmost to expand our capacity by routing certain destinations towards alternative interconnection partners. However, if you notice that the problem persists over a longer period, please fill out our fault report. Why the quality of the sound is sometimes not that good?
It is possible that in certain countries, particularly for mobile destinations, the quality of the sound may suffer. In many occasions these problems are usually due to a weak infrastructure or lack of mobile coverage in the destination. Unfortunately we cannot influence these circumstances. How can I inform Abroadtel about a fault?
First, make sure that you have dialled the correct number and you did not forget the country code. Furthermore, make sure that your telecom provider does not block our numbers.
