Saudi Arabia – Users in Saudi Arabia have some limitations using the Caller feature, such as not being able to make calls to Saudi Arabia from Saudi Arabia. For more information on these limitations, please read these guidelines. Users in the United Arab Emirates also have limitations with toll-free and geographic phone numbers, which can be found here.

Malaysia – Users may only be able to complete outbound calls to Malaysian numbers from a Twilio-supplied Malaysian number recognized by their telecom carrier partner as being on their network. This is due to some Malaysian telecom carriers blocking any outbound calls from any Malaysian phone number that is not a phone number in an effort to reduce fraud and abuse on Malaysia's telecom network.
