|455 phone numbers now available
||[Nov. 15th, 2003|02:06 am]
We've gone from 17 to 455 phone numbers available. They're all east coast still, but we're working on others.|
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:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org .
Hurray for Cell Phones with Free Long Distance :)

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,
I hope Singapore is one of them!
cant wait for California!
but its a great idea!
I'm waiting for the CA ones myself.
you dont have any westren PA ones! :(
Me: i dont know what is closer! there is no pittsburgh ones!
*****: no idea which is closer
*****: probably one in East Ohio. heh
*****: they should have a map
*****: with dots
Me: yeah they should
*****: and when you mouse.over the dot
*****: it tells you the number
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!
Seconded! If I understood what the requirements were, I'd think about calling them up about it myself.
Wow, lots of phone numbers. Nice work. Here's hoping for some TX numbers soon. ;)
yes! TX numbers soon pweeeeease :]
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.
my livejournal three way was cool. you guys should all check it out in my journal. go go go
This is absolutely the coolest feature yet! Thanks so much!!!
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:)
Here's hoping for Puerto Rico someday soon. ^^
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.
