Phone calls or SMS does not work for me

There are cases when OnCall is not able to make phone calls or send SMS to certain regions or specific phone numbers. We’re working hard to fix such cases, but kindly asking to test your personal notification chain to make sure OnCall is able to notify you. Also we suggest to back up Phone Calls and SMS with other notification methods such as Mobile app.
