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.

Why live chat software is so important


Hi Jeniffer,

I will list personal perspectives about why live chat is important:
1. You will have instant reply.
2. No need to worry about waiting time.
3. Most of the times you will whether message has reached or not.
4. Many apps provide to share video/images/ audio/ files/location in real time
5. Cheaper in cost
6. Emoticons help to show your emotions.

Best apps I have come across:
For mobile: Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, yahoo messenger, WeChat, Hike, kik etc

(However, if you connect inthis way, you won't be able to use the Voice feature.) If this configurationdoesn't work, follow these steps:<br /><br />Click the Messenger menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "ConnectionPreferences."<br /><br />Enable the "No network detection" option and then click the OK buttonat the bottom of the window.<br /><br />Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxysettings. Click the OK button.<br /><br />Enter your Yahoo!

Follow these steps:<br /><br />Click the Messenger menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "ConnectionPreferences."<br /><br />Enable the "Use proxies" option.<br /><br />Enter your firewall or proxy server's address and port number. Contact your <span>network administrator</span>(if you're at work), or your <span>Internet service provider</span> (if you're athome) to determine the correct firewall and proxy settings.<br /><br />Click the OK button at the bottom of the window.<br /><br />Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in with your new proxysettings. Click the OK button.<br /><br />Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.<br /><br />If you try all of the steps above and Yahoo! Messenger still can't connect,contact your network administrator, Internet Service Provider (ISP), or theperson who initially set up your computer to ensure that your firewall and/orproxy settings are correct.<br /><a href="http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger8/messenger/messenger-11.html">http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng...</a><br /><br />Solution 2.) You may have accidently saved your ID or password with errors init.
