Question about Yahoo Messenger

General Yahoo Voice Question???

I have the Yahoo phone working now with a mic and headset. I'm wondering if it's possible to purchase and hook up a more traditional style of phone that I can plug into the 3.5mm audio card so I can have a more normal phone? If so which phone would you recomend. I've found some that say SKYPE dedicated phone. Will this one work with Yahoo?
Thank You,
Jesse Young

    Thanks. I downloaded SKYPE and subscribed to thier $3.00/month unlimited phone plan. Then I purchased a usb audio converter for $25.00. Then I hook up my regular phones to it and good to go. No need to buy any type of new skype style phone. Regular phones work fine with a simple converter box.

    Thank You for your help.

    Well my $24.95 voip converter came in and it is amazing. I plugged it into my usb port. I plugged the magicjack into the line in port and plugged a two cord adaptor into the phone in port. Then I plugged all my cordless and wired phones into the two port adapror. After installing Skype and Skypemate I now have both Magicjack and Skype phone service. It has a converter has a automatic switcher on it to pick up whichever line a call comes in on and will ring that line. Calling out you just press the * button first to switch between the magicjack or the Skype service. The interesting thing is that this converter works for and not only supports Skype but also works with MSN Messenger, Net2phone, Voipblaster, Yahoo, etc.
    So , the answer is yes! There is a way to use your existing conventional phones with the internet voice services and make calls like you always have for free or near free. I must say the sound on Skype is excellent so far. Does not get choppy and breakup like it sometimes does with the magicjack. What great news! Don't buy all those expensive voip phones, just buy a simple converter that plugs into your usb port and use all your existing telephone equipment. Here is the link to the converter. 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.
hope this helps u

Yahoo Messenger 9.0 Voice Chat Drops


Normal 0 Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
Hope this helps. Bud
