Malaysia: Avoid Roaming Charges With Umobile WiFi Calling

Umobile WiFi Calling is a new feature that allows you to make and receive calls over WiFi using your mobile number. It helps you stay connected even when you have limited, no network coverage or you are living in a high-rise building where you suffer from poor network coverage, you can also call home from overseas with local call rates and I wonder that there’s no additional charge to enjoy WiFi-Calling with Umobile WorldWide roaming network.

We have discussed Digi WiFi-Calling in our recent post and demonstrated how to set up WiFi-Calling with Digi's Roaming networks. Today we're going to share Umobile WiFi-Calling will show you the free calls back to Malaysia while Roaming with Telenor, Pakistan
