Earlier, the app had certain issues, which have been now resolved in the latest update. Some of the major issues faced by Rebtel users were data calls cut off when leaving the app during a call; appearance of duplicate contacts in address book; Rebel Calling contacts were not appeared; the app didn't display bonus minutes in account; and some Rebtel subscribers in Dominican Republic were not able to log in.
Even after assigning country, the app takes first two figures of a cell number as country code, and displays country name accordingly. For example, if you are from the United Kingdom and you have saved a few local cell phones without the country code, it will automatically take first two digits, which are not +44, as a country code and display the name of country, which holds that code. In my iPhone 6s, all the numbers starting from 98 are assigned as numbers from Iran.
Rebtel uses stable phone lines to connect calls; you can talk to your loved ones without any worry of bad quality of lines or call drop. Cheap rate is another major benefit of Rebtel; perhaps these could be the reasons why Rebtel enjoys more than one billion calling minutes every year.
