I do apologize for this inconvenience. We cannot guarantee connections in the UAE as our services are likely blocked in this region. Are you able to connect over a cellular connection without rebooting your device? Likewise, are you able to connect over WiFi without rebooting your device? Please let me know what host you are connecting to when you are able to connect.
