unable to connect to caller on skype

when calling a contact on skype I am unable to connect.A message comes up saying that the contact can only receive IMs.I have spoken quite often to this contact in the past and i am wondering why this should be happening.Also what is a IM.

IM = Instant Messaging ..

Sounds like your contact has the problem, not you.

Perhaps an update to Skype might solve it - make sure you are both using the latest version.

You should both check that your mic's are connected and not muted.

Give the Skype Test Call a go, and in Audio Settings make sure that your mic's are showing correctly.
