    A N Cook,

    Do you notice an error message or anything else when you try to make calls? Also, if possible, have you tried making calls on other networks? Does it work there?

    I am having the same issue. And if I go out of the app across the top of my iPad2 it says whistle is recording... It worked the first two days I had the app and now I can't make calls or receive them

    Are you using the same network and/or router you had success with on the first couple days you had Whistle?

    That message definitely indicates that Whistle isn't able to connect to our servers to start your call. If you're on a wireless network, I recommend that you take a look at our advice on this issue here:


    There's some suggestions on that page for adjusting settings in your wireless router that may very well help.

    If you aren't on a wireless network, let us know.
