I have an iPhone 4s running iOS 8, I an recently using it in the Middle East, but I would like to make and receive calls to people living in Canada and USA. I have a gmail that has an American mobile number connected to its Google voice. Is their an app that would enable me to make and receive phone calls by using this American phone number to my iPhone. But I don't have the sim for this American phone number, and my iPhone has a sim with a local number from the Middle East installed to it.

  • Google Voice does not work Internationally.

  • This question appears to be off-topic because it is about making International calls, and not about Apple products performances.

    @Buscar웃, I think it is on topic: it's about how to make international calls SPECIFICALLY using an iPhone, which requires a VERY different answer if using android or other products.

I've had good luck with Acrobits Softphone... it's a SIP soft phone for iOS. Once you have an appropriate VoIP/PBX account that supports SIP clients, you can use google chat to get your calls into the PBX.

It definitely has some noticeable lag, but it is certainly better than nothing.

You can get a free VoIP/PBX account at pbxes.com (I have no affiliation).

  • VoIP is blocked in most Middle Ester countries.
