... You could use the Botim app which is allowed in the UAE. Obviously you and your correspondents have to be on the app and have access to either Wi-Fi or mobile data in order to enjoy free calls. Traffic isn't encrypted.

I just want to call an Uber. Google Fi does not work in UAE when I get off DXB. It never even works when I just crossed the border into Canada. It has not worked in India. So just stop BSing

I have a dual SIM iPhone with ATT in the ESim slot and Fi in the physical SIM slot.  I live right on the Canadian border (20 minutes away) and cross with a fair amount of frequency most recently yesterday.  

My ATT SIM locks on the Canadian signal far faster than the Fi SIM.  As soon as I drive through the Tunnel I am on the Canadian signal with ATT.  It takes ten minutes or more with Fi.  When I put the phone in airplane mode and take it out it will connect faster.  My non-scientific theory is that it locks on the week TMobile signal.

My wife has a client in the UAE and went there a number of times last years.  She has a Fi data SIM in her iPad and it works just fine.  Google blocks the use of Fi over IP where it is required to do so by law but they don't seem to worry about third party apps and services.
