[burr86]
Earlier today we'd found that our voice post phone numbers weren't accepting calls. We're working with our provider to get the problem fixed as soon as we can. In the meantime, hachi rushed to finish setting up a different method of voice posting. We've managed to get a toll-free number for voice posts!

We've been working on this for a while, so while we weren't expecting to have this ready for today, we figured that we might as well try. In particular, it hasn't been stressed under load -- there may be some bumps along the way. So with that in mind, please feel free to set up voice posting if you haven't done so already, and then call 1-888-840-6189 to make a voice post from anywhere in the continental United States. :)

(Unfortunately, if you aren't in the US, you won't be able to use this number. We're still looking for a good international provider -- if you have one you'd like to suggest, please let us know!)

EDIT: This is now our primary voiceposting number -- the existing numbers have proven to be incredibly unreliable, so we're migrating to just this number. Update your contacts lists!

EDIT EDIT: We'll be working on getting alternate numbers, for all of you who've commented saying that this one doesn't work for you (for whatever reason). Keep an eye on news :)

Neat.

Since you asked..

I recommend NTT for Japan: http://www.ntt.com/
Please, please get a japanese number! It doesn't have to be toll free, but just a number that we can call would be beyond amazing.

Re: Since you asked..

I guess VOIP wouldn't be an alternative?

All of our numbers went down today, as opposed to the handful that we knew were having some intermittent problems. :-/

Is there even a standard rate UK number to make the posts from? I can't afford to phone the US to make a voice post!

Right now SIP is the only way to make a phonepost from outside the US, but we're actively working on that!

I'm adding my voice to the "Yay" choir. :) Now I don't have to waste my phone minutes calling the east coast.
