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.

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!

Lots of great stuff coming out of LJ these past few days, however, you're missing something vital...

A UK phone number!!!!

Can't wait for Danish number(s)!

But, well, other than that: Why aren't the pages made translatable? Are they not going to be, or... ?

Phone numbers on the east coast, great! I'm on the east coast!
Hold on - which country are you talking about?
Ack, another case of the US being the entire universe and/or assuming that everyone will know which country you're talking about. Good work on the new feature, not so impressed with all your other paid users in other nations being forgotten about in your language.

It's not LJ's decision where or where not they can place phone lines. Having international ones runs into problems, there's high taxes on the connections, slow response times (VoIP has to connect to LJ's servers, which is slow from other countries), plus many phone companies simply don't want to sell phone lines to people in other countries - some countries even prohibit it.

Why does an ip based phone service have a coverage area? Shouldn't their coverage area be the internet?

It's really based on area codes. VoIP still interfaces with POTS, so you still need an area code. It's just where they have blocks of numbers available to them.

You guys, thank you so much. I've been astounded over the last few weeks at how fast you've been adding new features. And gigantic new features, not at all to be sneezed at! I must say, I do worry sometimes that with all these new amazing things, like the icons and phone posts, that you'll run out of space or be completely bogged down. I hope you aren't getting in over your head.

Then again, I try to have faith that you guys are much better informed than I am, and that you know just what you're getting in to and can handle it. I'm sure you do.

It's 3 in the AM. I'm making no sense. Just.. thanks a bundle for being so cool! :D

I think they've been so busy keeping everything together for so long, that now that it isn't falling apart around them, they've forgotten they can relax when everything isn't falling apart around them.

Um, let's not tell them, ok?

6708

I wonder whether there's any special significance to the -6708 that appears to be part of all of their phone numbers?

Re: 6708

I guess it's LJ's customer number or some sort.

It's frustrating that you are capable of getting 29 phone numbers in the miniscule state of Delaware, yet seem incapable of getting phone numbers from any other state that's not hugging the east coast.

While I'm sure that all the paid users in those states are pleased that they can call 33 different locations in their state and not have to pay long distance, but are 455 phone numbers really necessary for these states, while 36 other states and countless countries remain number-less?

Cool down. He did mention several times that he's working on adding more, including international ones.

What is weird to me is that you have so many Florida numbers, except one in a well known city called... TAMPA. ;)

I second the 813 call.
If not 813, then at least 727.

If 813 or 727 get added soon...
I may eat my words, and actually geet a paid account again.

In New Jersey, the 'Williamston' phone number should be spelled 'Williamstown' if its the same Williamstown it seems to be from the area code - I live here. =) Sorry if it's a different one and I'm wrong.

This is great!
