snapontech :

Welcome to Justanswer

snapontech :


If the other person is shown offline, you have not been blocked, otherwise he/she would be shown as a gray Skype logo with a white question mark in it

snapontech :

If the other person is online, but is still shown offline, he/she probably set his/her status to invisible.

snapontech :

Our you having a service issue with a certain person

Customer:

when i initiate a call, it rings once and then i get a message "call failed"

snapontech :

does it say reason unknown

Customer:

no. this person is the only one that i have this problem with. i don't know if he blocked me or there is a technical problem on his end. is there any way to know for sure if it's been blocked. there is no reason for him to block me. there's been no problem between us.

snapontech :

Do you have there email?

Customer:

no

snapontech :

if they have blocked you you will not be able to see their online status (to you the user will appear to be offline all the time) or their contact details, nor will you be able to contact them by calling or sending IM -- you also will no be able to send them files

snapontech :

So, is the once visible contact (check icon) becomes a "?"

Customer:

i can call, but the phone rings once and i get the "call failed" message.

snapontech :

This has happened to others and its most likely a error in the system not a block

snapontech :

They state the best way to fix it is to try removing from contact list and re-exchanging details

snapontech :

This has worked for many others when this happens

snapontech :

So your not blocked its just an error

Customer:

all i have is his online name. if i delete the name i'm not sure if i can reconnect. can i copy and paste his info?

snapontech :

Yes

Customer:

i'll give it a try thank you very much.

Expert:  snapontech replied 3 years ago.
So everyone you call it just disconnects right after you call them?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
yes
Expert:  snapontech replied 3 years ago.
What operating system are you using?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
windows 7...it is only the contacts in Turkey that this is happening to.
Expert:  snapontech replied 3 years ago.
Most likely it could be a issue with skype I would contact them and have them put a technical report to get it fixed as your not the only one having problems to turkey right now and the more reports the faster they get it back up. Email is XXXXXXX@XXXXX.XXX

After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents.
