Blocked is blocked. Talk to your carrier.

Yeah, and this also may be a country specific issue that you are not going to be able to get around.

Have you tried talking to your service provider to find out why youtube is blocked?

I'm sure that will go far in Saudi Arabia.

Most of the time the call center you reach isn't in your own country.

Which is beside the point.

If your carrier outsourced customer service to India, do you think it is the laws of India that apply to your carrier?

Mama pointed out the OP's problem.

It would be the law of Saudi Arabia that would apply in this case. The law probably required the carrier to block the youtube site. There is nothing you can do if this is the case.


Edit: Youtube videos are blocked in Saudi as per the below article. (Please add http://www.)

Take phone into your service provider and let them do it for you.
