We've gone from 17 to 455 phone numbers available. They're all east coast still, but we're working on others.

http://www.livejournal.com/phonepost/numbers.bml

States covered: Connecticut | Delaware | Dist. of Columbia | Florida | Georgia | Maine | Maryland | Massachusetts | New Hampshire | New Jersey | New York | Pennsylvania | Rhode Island | Vermont | Virginia

Mad props to the coolest phone company I've had the pleasure of working with:

http://www.voicepulse.com/

Everybody should get a VoIP phone from them because they're cool. (I'm drooling at their "Filters" functionality....) Unfortunately I'm in Portland, OR, outside of their coverage area, so I can't get their service.

Anyway, we're working on numbers in other parts of the world and the states. If you work at a phone company that can setup trunk numbers in your region to a VoIP/SIP/IAX connection on our end, get in contact with me at brad@danga.com .

Enjoy!

Thanks, Brad!

Holy Christmas! Thanks! Although, personally, I just use my cell phone with nationwide long-distance. I've plenty of friends on the East Coast who'll love this, though.

Thanks for the hard work,
Sean

Physical distance doesn't really matter, some phone companies will charge 10 cents a minute for the next area code over, but the next area code only costs 5 cents per minute. Best bet is to call (or email) your phone company and ask for the rates for each of the PA numbers. Hell, the NY or NJ numbers could work out being cheaper too!

Im putting my vote in for Australia... Adelaide, South Australia even...

you might want to look into:

http://www.telstra.com
http://www.optus.com.au
http://www.iprimus.com.au/

They are all Australian phone companies.. I dont know if they would be able to support this service, but my best bet would be either Telstra or Optus.

Seconded! If I understood what the requirements were, I'd think about calling them up about it myself.

Coooool... this would kick ass in Toronto, Ontario. Try these:

Rogers
Bell Canada
Primus Canada

Best of luck moving this great idea north to Canada!

Maybe it's in your future design, but I'll post this anyway.

How about making the page a lot easier to find?

1st page - a drop down menu. Asking user where they are based in. User pick from the list. Click Submit.

2nd page, the page shows the phone number in their area.

I'm pretty sure SprintWorldwide offers VoIP, they have numbers all over the world. http://www.sprintworldwide.com/

If you can't find the voice over IP access in some areas, couldn't you just get accounts at different companies with call fowarding setup? It would just redirect people to a phone number in another area, but it doesn't charge them long distance. I know Verizon offers this.

Anyways, thanks for adding 2 numbers in my area. It's much appreciated! :)

Wah. Buffalo, Syracuse, Albany, NYC, but not Rochester? (Local telco is Frontier, parent company is Citizens.)

Erm, sorry, that's in NY, and the Rochester area code is 585. Which VoicePulse doesn't appear to support yet -- is that who you're setting all of these up through?

Don't get me wrong, I'm rather impressed with what I've seen so far. s:) Just a bit surprised that Rochester got left out, but then again, Frontier is a bit stupid, so...maybe I shouldn't have been. s:)

Was just trying it (Yeah, from Saudi Arabia), but I noticed a problem. One of these phone numbers I tried has this weird thing, I hear other people talking, probably recording their messages or something. It was so confusing.

At another time it just disconnected me suddenly.

It could be because it's a long distance call, but I do these a lot and have no problems. Anyway, I won't be using it a lot because it's expensive, so it's no problem for me.
