Android App is not working properly

Postby mahaos » 01/30/2019


This evening (29/01/2019), the android app stopped working properly. I am able to connect to the app (through my account). But when I am trying to make a call I get the following message : "Error Retrieving Rate" and "Call Failed : Call can not be completed, you do not have an active Fongo connection".

I have tried to use both Wifi and 4G. The same messages.
I have tried the app after rebooting, after reinstalling the app, after sign off ... always the same message.

When I call my Fongo mobile number I am reaching my voicemail after several rings.

Several of my friends using the same Fongo Mobile started having the same issue this evening.
I also have a freephoneline that seem to work properly.

There was an error when i have screenshot the number ... but the same messages are seen if the number is the correct number : 418 656 7777

Another abnormal message that is in the status bar is "Fongo : Loading Configuration ...". This seems to be source of the problem.

Fongo Version :
Android Version : 8.0.0

Thanks in advance for your help.

Same here.
it just says "loading configuration"
I messaged other family members who use Fongo on FB and they all say the same thing. Both Android and iOS are not working.
Status page says operational but it's obviously not.

The icon at the top of my screen for Fongo Works stays green instead of the usual grey and when I expand it stays on Loading Configuration...
I tried to logout and log back in, but when I try, I get the following error message: Uh Oh! Please check your network connection and try again.
I tried, rebooting my phone, uninstalling and reinstalling the app with the same result.

Please help.

Thanks in advance.
