Google Voice: Invalid number

I'm trying Google Voice for the first time. When I add a contact with a phone number and then when I click "Connect" , there is a pink box saying "Invalid number". I've tried 3 numbers, all of which I know are good, with the same result. If I go to Settings -> Voice Settings, there are 2 tabs, Billing and Account, neither of which are of any help.

What can I do to get call these numbers?

This mystifies me in that it looks like Google Voice has been active for a year (invite only), then they open it up, and I try to do the most basic thing (enter a number, call it) and it doesn't work.
