beta testing: toll-free voice posting [Jan. 26th, 2007|05:34 pm]

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 :)

I noted this myself. Wow, I hope there's some sort of compensation. This is bullshit, man!

Awesome. Glad to know I can keep using this great service.

Wait, right, I don't live in America. Thanks. I've only had a paid account since 2002.

Wow. Good thing I thought of clicking through my mobile settings. Thanks so much for the toll-free number as I've had the local# for more than a year now. At least this way I'll be more inclined to make voiceposts on location. ♥

Yeah, so, about the whole "getting numbers set up for international users"?

When the frak are you going to pull your fingers out and, you know, actually fucking do it?

ak

the number does not work for people living in alaska. my friend is quite upset about it. she likes to use this feature. and she is a paid user. please find away for her to be able to use voice post. I miss being able to her her voice on the voice post, we are thousands of miles away, and when I can not talk to her I can at least her her voice.

I don't know if anyone else has had this issue, or if it's part of the shift to this number, but the option for posting to the friend group you set up at the beginning has never come been available for me when I actually make a post. The only options are Public, Private, and all friends. I can live with it, but it'd be nice to to be able to post directly to the specified group instead of editing the generated post.
