    are you trying to call your own dot or someone on the contact list?

    Pretty close to what I want but here is more info on the problem

    An Alexa network can only have two household profiles
    To call a contactin an Alexa network say an echo dot associated with a profile the profile must be associated with a cellphone number

    If I have only one profile and one cell phone number I can't call my echo dot but the dot can call my cell phone that I am logged into with that profile

    Anybody have any ideas on this situation

    I know nothing when it comes to different profiles. I would suggest going to the unofficial amazon echo user forum. there are a lot of advance users there that deal with profiles
