Has Skype stopped allowing calls to NVC from outside U.S?

Up until last night we had no problem contacting the NVC using Skype from Thailand. We have had many successful calls to them over the past 2 months using the phone # 603-334-0700. Last night when trying to contact them Skype rejected the calls stating "invalid phone #" I thought it was a glitch and decided to go to bed and try it again in the morning. This morning same thing. So, I thought it may be my account and tried it from my husbands account and a different computer. Same thing. :angry: Is anyone else experiencing this problem? Very frustrating~

Thanks for your reply. I used the +1 as well. It was working fine for me last week. Just not last night or today. Getting "invalid number" message. Are you calling from Slovenia? We are trying from Thailand and it's still not going through. As I said I've been having no problems for 2 months and just last night it stopped working. hmmm~

Yes, I am calling from Slovenia...and for now it is working like a charm. I doubt that they "blocked" NVC number..... Maybe stupid question....do you have enough skype credit?

Yeah same here, they made conference lines as the paid service. Well they come to know people are missing using application, because it always takes very long to get someone over there to answer.

After another full day of getting "invalid number" on Skype it suddenly started ringing and I got through. That was a few days ago and its still working just fine. Some kind of "Skype glitch" I guess. I thought Skype may have followed the path of Magic Jack but for now...it's working like a charm. I find I get can through to NVC right away if you call at U.S time 7 a.m :.)
