Need help - his phone call doesn't get through to my phone?

I live in Germany and my PP is located in California (BOP). He tried to call me but it doesn't work. He wrote it can't be completed.and that it might be my service provider that need to get the block taken off. I called them (Telekom) but they said there is nothing blocked and I should be able to receive US calls.

He called 011-49-my phonenumber. I have no clue what the problem is that it can't be put through.

Does anyone have experiences with it?

No, not with that phone service, but I use Talkatone and that works. So if you can't figure it out maybe you could try that one. But there's one bug to Talkatone though, and maybe that could be the same for Telekom?? - You need to keep the app (screen) activated in order to recieve his calls. So you kinda needs to tap the screen every fifth second untill he calls... Yeah, it's so weird... :-) But when I do that I can recieve his calls. Otherwise not.

Try googling your problem. That's what I had to do to make it work.
