Contact Can Only Receive IM????

A few days ago, my boyfriend's skype stopped letting him make/receive calls.
I am in America, and he is in Taiwan.
We both use Windows.
We both have the most recent Skype update.
It worked fine, letting us make voice and video calls, up until around 12/2/11
Now it displays a message when I try to call him saying something like "Contact can only receive IMs"
When he tries to call me, it will dial on his end (doesn't ring on my end) and then hangs up / drops the call ....
I've read other posts that other users have had the same problem...
Did anyone find solutions that worked????
Thank you for any help^^

Download and Reinstall the new Skype 5.7 beta version. See if it helps.

Ask this contact to make a test call to Skype Echo Sound Test Service (echo123).
