Error: Contact can only receive IM

Hai,

 

I been using skype for months, but today, I've added somebody today and then tried to contact them using Voice Call; and the call wont connect.

 

We have tried editing both our Privacy settings, restarting, updating/reinstalling skype and it still wont connect no matter who calls who.

 

This is only broken with 1 contact and we have tested during a group call and still no luck. 

Tehc info:
We are both using Pc/Laptops, We are both using Win7 and have up to date skypes, good internets.

We are both on each others contact lists.

Please get back to me.

Thanks ~

I did remove my Echo Sound Test Service, would this add to the problem, but I'm still in calls with other people though.

Not you, but your contact should try to do the test call.
