I have Yahoo Phone Out, but now that I'm outside of USA, it is not working, please help?

Hi guys! I have Yahoo Messenger Phone Out Service. I live in USA.
But currently I'm out of the country, now my Yahoo Phone Out is not working, I'm unsure why.
Everytime I try to make a call, it says:
"We're very sorry. The Yahoo! Voice Service could not make this call right now. Please try again a little bit later."

No calls are going through, what can I do about this?
Thanks so much for your help, I really do appreciate it! :)

Hi bubbleforu,

check your firewall setting, may be you are working behind a strong firewall. One more reason is, you are working on a proxy server & yahoo messenger does not support proxy server.

try it out, hope your problem would be solved.

Hello Bubbleforu,

Well now, there could be many reasons why it is not working, but here are a few of the main ones for you to check.

1. If you are using some software (Anti-virus etc) that has a personal firewall or your computer is set up under its privacy service the thing to do would be to simply check which incoming ports Yahoo Messenger uses for its phone feature and and then add those ports in the firewall settings. Or if the software is just blocking the communication full stop, then "enable" it under your firewall software.

2. Your ISP in the country your in now may be blocking it.....if that is the case you could always switch your ISP ... but if not, then your stuck!

3. It is a paying service...so check if you have any money in it to let you use it....I know... its a silly thing, but you would be surprised how many people forget that its not free!

Hope those help you.

How to kame pc to pc free calls


hi friend,
Voice Save money and talk for hours! Make free PC-to-PC calls around the world to friends on Yahoo! Messenger.
Select a friend in your contact list and click the Call button to get started. You and the friend you call both need Yahoo! Messenger, plus a microphone and speakers (or headset). If you own a laptop, you probably have these tools already built-in. If not, head over to Yahoo! Shopping to check out some headsets.
Free PC-to-PC calls are unlimited and the quality is so good that you won't believe it's free! PC-to-PC calling is currently available in the following versions of Yahoo! Messenger: Windows, Mac.
If your friend is not available, you can leave them a free Voicemail. You can also receive voice mails from friends who miss you when they try to call. Voicemail messages are delivered as attachments in email to the address you choose.
Call regular and mobile phones too Sign up for a Yahoo! Voice Phone Out account to make calls from Yahoo! Messenger to your friends' regular or mobile phones worldwide for as low as 1¢ a minute. Find out more.
Forward calls to your mobile or land line If you don't want to miss calls, even when you're signed out, use the call forwarding feature to send incoming PC-to-PC calls to another phone number like your mobile phone (Yahoo! Voice Phone Out account required). The call is still free for your caller, and you only pay the Yahoo! Voice per minute rate for the forwarded call (as low as 1¢ a minute).
Get a phone number for Yahoo! Messenger Need an extra phone number to give to friends and family? Sign up for a Yahoo! Voice Phone In account and get a local phone number that friends and family can use to contact you through Yahoo! Messenger. Even if you're away from your PC, they can leave a Voicemail for you, or you can forward your incoming calls to another number, like your mobile phone. Find out more.
* Please note: 911 and other emergency service numbers currently cannot be accessed through Yahoo! Messenger or Yahoo! Voice services. You must use a traditional land line or mobile phone to access 911 or other emergency service numbers. Internet access and compatible PC required. Intended for use by U.S. residents only. Yahoo! Voice Phone Out and Phone In services are provided by Yahoo! Communications USA Inc., must be purchased separately and require you to download Yahoo! Messenger version 7.5 or higher. See additional terms and conditions during registration. Calls to mobile phones or other wireless devices may be charged at higher rates than calls to traditional land line phones. Additional fees and taxes may apply. All rates, promotional or otherwise, are subject to change at any time without notice. Please see Yahoo!'s most current rate table at: http://voice.yahoo.com/phone_rates.php. PC-PSTN calls are billed in one-minute increments. PC-to-PC calling between Yahoo! Messenger customers is free. Check with your internet service provider regarding any fees you will be charged to access the internet.

Screen frozen on Instant Messenger screen


remove the battery, replace the battery back into the phone and let it reboot.
one thing i would suggest is to use one of your chat programs at a time, yahoo or msn but both may be maxing your phones ram memory out.

Acer crystal eye webcam cant use in yahoo messenger


Make sure all of your drivers are updated for the webcam and the sound card. To check the drivers go to the manufacturer's websites for each of these products. Also, make sure your yahoo messenger is updated and make sure that the Windows Live Essentials is updated to latest version. If this does not solve your problem, please let me know.

Hi There!!

As i understand you cannot use the Yahoo Messenger Phone out service.

Please upgrade your yahoo messenger to Yahoo Mesenger 9.0.0.1389 and buy new phone out credits. This should work.
