    Tried all your suggestions. It is trying to use the messaging app for dialing and still gets "call error".

    To reiterate: using mobile data and texting using the app is fine, receiving and making calls isn't working. Trying to dial brings up the FP messenger app's dialing screen but always results in "call error".

    @Veronika,

    Ended up finding the solution to my problem: in the literature that the FP community links, they haven't merged it with their other, newer troubleshooting documentation (https://support.freedompop.com/hc/en-us/articles/360026010673-Android-phone-troubleshooting-steps)

    For me, it was that the SIP permission in step 7 wasn't enabled. After enabling, syncing my account, and rebooting my phone, the calling started working again.

    Hello Eric Lam!

    Thanks for reaching out. We're sorry to learn you've been experiencing problems with our service. We provide VoIP service, which basically means data or the internet is used for calling and texting instead of the cellular network. Due to this, a VoIP application is required for calling and texting. 

    Please be sure you're making outgoing calls directly from the Messaging app and not your device's native dialer. We'd also recommend you to clear and restart the app by following the steps provided on this link

    Additionally, please be sure to synchronize account data on the app. You may find detailed steps, here.

    Should you continue to experience the same problems after following the steps provided below, please let us know.
