Can't make outgoing calls

I'm using Mac OSC 10.6.8 with the latest version of Skype.

 

I can't make any outgoing calls, when I try to call it starts to connect (no ringing tone) and makes the bubble type sound before cutting off. The strangest thing is that the contacts I am calling can call me and we have no problem.

 

I've tried reinstalling which hasn't worked.

 

Can anyone reccomend a fix?

Re: Can't make outgoing calls

PLEASE someone help! I can't beleive a company as big as skype doesn't have an actual support department at least by email!

I PAID  to be able to make outgoing land line calls with skype, it hasn't been working for over a month.

I call out, it gives me the "bubbly" hang up sound instantly then says I have to pay.

My subscription doesn't run out until June, (two months from now)

I have lost over a month of what I paid for.

This is my business line and this is totally unacceptable, PLEASE SOMEONE ANSWER THESE POSTS!

Re: Can't make outgoing calls

I have the same problem. It's got gradually worse to the point that it doesn't work at all.

 

When I make a call there is a sound Skype "dialling" a number, it then goes silent. It doesn't ring out and it never connects. After a while it will hang up.

 

I'm on OSX 10.9.2 and Skype Version 6.15. Anyone with an answer out there??
