PostPosted: Fri Aug 25, 2006 2:16 am    Post subject: Vonage block started in June Reply with quote Back to top

My Vonage stopped working in June - around the 25th or 26th. Skype was still working then.
The only thing we can do is keep up the pressure. Incidentally, using the cost angle may backfire, because Etisalat may reduce the rates by 10% and make a big deal about it in the press.
What will work best is to try and get lots of PR - I like StuFried's suggestions about letters, but also here are some more suggestions:
1) If anyone here is connected in anyway to the UK, US, Canadian and other embassies/consulates that have clout over UAE, should write to their trade attache's and request intervention.
2) Even if you are a citizen of any of these countries, you should write to the Trade Office C/o your Consulate or Embassy. This is clearly against free trade and against UAE's committment to join the WTO by opening up their markets.
3) If you are connected in anyway to some influential Emiratis, nothing like it - use the connection to your advantage and have them see if they can help or write a letter to TRA.

Jumanji - I know this may be a dumb question, so forgive me for asking. Are you sure you are plugged into the port that says "Phone 1" and not "Phone 2" I plugged mine into the wrong port (Phone2) on the Linksys box and it kept getting a similar recording, "This telephone line has been connected to the wrong port..."
When I was messing with my box, I accidentally got the wire into the wrong port.

biteme.. everything is connected fine.. i have the vtech ip8100.. its a slightly different device.. it consists of a base unit that plugs into the router.. and this acts as a receiver for a vtech phone.

its actually a great unit: http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&q=vtech%20ip8100&btnG=Google+Search&sa=N&tab=wi

anyhow.. if i did plug it into the wrong port/unit area.. it would finish the message.. why is it getting cut out at 3 seconds? maybe the packet sensing technology?

Jumanji they are about to launch that "speak out dubai" website, so just wait a few days and everyone will get fired up...

also interesting note:

i woke up this morning to our house cook saying the light is solid (i even trained him to monitor and reset it every few hours, then give me a report) so i checked it and it deifnatly was solid!!! unfortunately when i reset it to make sure it was working, it kept blinking...

now this means one thing, last night etisalat or the "TRA" (totally ridiculous answer) at one point had unblocked the port(s), this means our boxes were working at some point... so maybe they are coming up with a solution or trying a workaround?

or maybe im getting my hopes up?

ETISALAT -- WE WILL STILL CONTINUE TO ARGUE! We are in a freezone, and are supposed to be completely lifted of any trade restrictions including Voip!

Maybe I need to translate this into arabic or urdu?

Yesterday's Gulf News business section gave information about a site that helps people work around the Skype block. I don't think the information given was overly helpful, but for the Gulf News it was a start.

then you can use a proxy to bypass their services.. now everyones going to give into HeyU and pay 300 dhs for a free link, LOL

good way to make money i suppose (out of non technical people)
