    Yahoo! Phone In and Phone Out both require version 7.5 or Beta 8.0 of Yahoo! Messenger. For version 8, just go to,/ click on the ‘Get it Now’ button, and follow the installation process. If you are not ready for the beta, just click on the ‘Get version 7.5’ link located directly under the ‘Get it Now’ button to get the current version, version 7.5.

    To make a call once you have downloaded Yahoo! Messenger, just dial + followed by the country code, area code, and telephone number of the person you wish to call.

    If you cannot hear or be heard, run the Call Setup Assistant. To run the Call Setup Assistant:

    -Open the "Messenger" menu in the main Yahoo! Messenger window, and click "Preferences."

    -In the Preferences dialog box, click "Calling and Audio."

    -In the Calling and Audio dialog box, click "Open the Call Setup Assistant."

    -Follow the instructions to test your microphone and speakers and specify your Internet connection.

    If your problems continue, contact the Yahoo! Voice customer care team. When Yahoo! launched the premium (paid) voice services, they also launched a new support method just for us -Live Chat. Just go to and click on the 'Live Chat help' link on the right side of the page. Agents are standing by 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist.
