Dont use yahoo messenger for ACER ASPIRE ONE not compatible, I suggest use SKYPE messenger text chat, video and voice call as well work great.

Yahoo messenger work only video and text chat only but voice call not work.

Skype messenger works video and voice call works perfectly.

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

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 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.
