Only if all the furries there die.
Hah! Numbers in Texas, at long last! Hooray!
Thanks a bunch, guys. ;)
how did you make your icon its so cute!!!
Thank you! Any chance of numbers outside the US?
People still pay for Long Distance?
That's just crazy talk.
Hopefully LiveJournal will work it's way to Ohio, I'm assuming LiveJournal is putting numbers in the states with the most users...Ohio is number 11...maybe someday... :)
If that was the approach they were taking, California would have had numbers long before today, since they have the most LJ users...
So, um, where are they? Unless I'm missing something, none of those are actually on the page.
That was my confusion, too... I assume they're going up soon -- especially if they get more numbers today, like they thought they might.
And Illinois isn't a far jump away from Wisconsin either. :)
Texas! Cool. Hopefully we'll be getting some of these in Oklahoma soon, then! :)

Suddenly, I'm jealous of Mississippi. That's wrong on so many levels.
Score! I just moved to San Antonio a week ago, and now there's numbers for it, yay!
Sweet. Can't wait for canadian numbers, though.
LoL We posted almost the same comment at the same time. CANADA!!!
There are sh*tloads of Canadian Users fdor LJ.. But not neccisarily for the whatsthere faces that make the numbers.. *crosses fingers.
That's awesome. I can't wait until this posting by phone thing comes to Canada... But wait.... Maybe it never will.Maybe Canada will get shafted out of this beautiful moment we're having....
They have phones in Canada?
VoicePulse is available in Greenville/Spartanburg, SC, but no LJ number there yet. :-( They need to hop to it!
VP has numbers in a lot of places that LJ doesn't yet. :(
(VP is short on numbers in some areas...)
Who cares if someone happens to mention where they want the next numbers? Everyone just needs to calm down. It's one things to be like, "HEY... y u guyz don;t haf digits in (_insert_state_Here_). U should. What r u WAITING FOR?"
But if someone says, "I wish they had it in....."
Who cares? Does it really bother you that much to take time out of your busy schedule to start the same argument?
Isn't that what you're doing, concerning the people who are? Pot call the kettle black much?
No, my schedule isn't busy, I've been home for 3 weeks recovering from surgery.
Now go bother some teenage girl with a pink journal, and the phrase, "like, OMG!" every other sentence.
Come on, Voice Pulse, get Indiana! *shakes feathers and streamers*
Before I get the "we have no control over these" thing. I had a look at the voicepulse link that was posted above, and just saw a load of stuff about the States, which I presume is why there are currently no outside USA numbers (as voiceplus don't operate outside the States).
However, are there similar companies in other countries who could provide a similar service to allow LJ to provide numbers outside the USA? I don't work in telecommunications and don't know a great deal about it but I'm pretty sure somebody here does and may be able to answer that. It would just be a more constuctive way of going about this that complaining.
I did a bit of maths the other day and there are now (at the time of doing my sums, which was Saturday I believe) actually a greater proportion of LJ users who are resident outside the USA. It would be nice if some way of working around this could be found for all of those people (of which, I admit, I am one) so that we don't have to phone another country if we want to use this service (and I don't use it for that very reason). I know that calls in the USA are charged at an international rate (or similar) when you phone outside your state, but I'm pretty sure they're still not quite as expensive as they are in the UK, as everything is so much more expensive over here.
In the short-term (i.e. until VoIP companies outside the US get chummy with LJ) I know NTL offers some rather reasonable rates on international calls. You will have to slip a 34-digit number in front of your calls, though, so it's no good if you're prone to RSI.

Re: can't wait to use this
Likewise move the Virginia ones to its section.
How do they not have numbers for Chicago yet? It's the third largest city in the country. Very confusing.
Telephone tariffs and regulations in the States are positively vicious and vary wildly from state to state. If the Baby Bells can manage to shut the little guys out of an area, they will. IIRC, the LEC for the Chicago area is Ameritech, which is controlled by SBC (Bell South).
The problem may not be so much that they don't want to as that the area is tied up in court, or the cost of getting leased lines (or laying their own fiber, whichever they do) is simply prohibitive. Chicago's fiber capacity sucks for its size.
Yay! I can finally make a phone post!
You could before.
It just cost you long distance fees to your phone company to make it.
Now, I assume, it's a local and "free" call.
