Question about Yahoo Messenger

"The Yahoo! Voice service could not make this call right now." MacG-5,OS 10.5

Oct. 15, 2008 After downloading the current version of Yahoo Messenger I am unable to get Pc to Pc voice.  
I am using a Power Mac G5 with OS 10.5.5.  I am using Safari Version 3.1.2 (5525.20.1).  I have a DSL connection.
Problem 1:  Every time I click "Start Voice Conversation" I get the following message: "The Yahoo! Voice service could not make this call right now.  Please try again a little bit later."    Problem 2:  When a party calls me and I try to answer the call I am unable to:  I click on the green answer field and nothing happens.
I have an external mic plugged in and the System Preferences that shows it is working at a proper level.  Also, I have reinstalled the program.  Both didn't make a change.
Thanks for your help in advance,
David

    Yahoo Voice sucks. 2 out of 5 time fail to dial.

  • Anonymous Feb 05, 2009

    I'm depending on Yahoo Voice to make calls from China.



    Now can't even connect to the voice server.

  • mzpong Feb 22, 2009

    I have the same problem of "....could not make this call now, try later...." for weeks now. Contacted Yahoo online technical department but it was a farce...a lengthy exercise of futility. Then they gave me another department to try to help me a couple days later. It got even worse, they just sent me a page from their manual which did not fix the problem at all.



    I wanted to port my yahoo voice number to another service provider. Does anyone know if that can be done? I asked yahoo this question but was ignored.

Voice chat not working


It's clear that you are not using the correct version of Yahoo messenger, some version like Indian version doesn't support voice chat, but US version do. You can download the US version from this link http://messenger.yahoo.com/download/win/ But firstly you need to uninstall the installed version so that it'll not overwrite or retain the old version. Good luck.

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.
