I voice posted last night and it still hasn't posted to my blog yet.
I've read all the comments that there are to read on this subject, and I can't understand why we haven't heard anything from LiveJournal staff.
If they care, they need to tell us what's happening, and make an effort to fix these problems.
I completley agree. I'm a plus user, I upgraded specifically so I could voicepost.
I wasn't really willing to pay long distance charges, so the idea of a tole-free number really appealed to me. And now it doesn't even work for all of us in canada? that's just crap, sorry, but it's true.
All of the people who are plus users, who upgraded specifically so they could voicepost, and live outside the states, are now screwed. I'm considering going back to a basic account until this gets fixed. When they ask why, i'll say because the reason I updated doesn't work.
Please. get. a. number. for. people. outside. of. the. US!.
the number you have dialed is not available in your area at this time.
and hasn't been since it was put up. so when WILL it be available? jesus christ.
Just when I was thinking of actually making my Paid account worth the money I paid it...
This blows alright. I have free long distance to anywhere in US & Canada with Shaw, but the toll-"free" number renders it completely useless. Damn it.
How about Telstra for my country, Australia.
I have tried the old numbers I have tried this new number and goddamnit! WTF It says Ive reached my Limit! What?
I haven even done a voice post yet in 2007.
I think LJ needs to give us non-usa'ers a refund! One of the main reasons I have a paid account is to use voice post numbers, now with only the ONE!! TOLL-FREE USA!! number only! Why should I pay for a feature that I can't use?????????????????????????????????
I have just been informed that I am invalid and told "goodbye"...
I AM VALID! I SWEARS I AM!!!!
dw-- is not an invalid neither!
So, I'm mos. def. not the only one with this problem, but I enter my passcode and hit pound... and then am told that my entry was invalid and cut off.
Am I missing something?
burr86 wooow this is soo genius i love this feature this is kewl!now i can post anywhere i am with my friends everything! thanx soo much
Continental US... So need a number that will work for Alaska. It truly sucks paying for stuff in Alaska, sucks even more that not even my internet out reach won't even work in Alaska. LJ peeps... fix it -.- I didn't mind calling a Washington line.

In case anyone is monitoring the replies:
In the UK, 0800 numbers (along with 0800 and 0808) are toll-free and can usually be obtained via British Telecom. That said, most mobile carriers still charge a toll to call them, but not for land lines to call. In Ireland it's 1800 prefixes and those are usually obtained via Eircom and BT Ireland.
As to Mexico, the dialing code is 01-800, but I'll be buggered if I can remember who has reliable service there after everything went private. I usually bite the bullet and roam on my mobile service from the states.
The US-based number worked just fine for me. Thankfully I checked the News line after three failed attempts. Thanks for fixing this for at least your US-based customers for now. I'm sure you'll have it back and running for others soon enough. *May want to allow them some kind of interruption of service credit if they're a frequent voice poster just to appease them. Or not, your choice.*

Re: In case anyone is monitoring the replies:
(along with 0800 and 0808) Should have read (along with 0500 and 0808). Sorry about that.
I'm pretty disappointed. I live in Canada, and I pay the same price for my paid account each month, and I can't use any numbers. I'm seriously doubting I'll be renewing my account when it expires, because the paid features just aren't worth the money, at least for international users.
Sorry, meant to say...
pay the same price for my paid account each month as USA users
And also, meant to add...
I agree with the comment above. I think we're entitled to some money back, here.
