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 :)

For Canada, you might want to try a company out of Tallahassee FL called PATLive - www.patlive.com

Awesome! Now there's no reason for me to be concerned why my "local" LiveJournal number was two states away in Michigan!

We added a few Chicago numbers recently, too. ;)

I guess since my cellphone (my main and only phone) can call anywhere in the US toll free, a toll free number really doesn't draw much weight.

Thank you! I haven't been able to make a voice post on your voice post phone numbers since summer of 2006. Glad to be able to use this feature again!

Hah, damned fantastic. Phoneposts seem to have fallen by the wayside lately, so hopefully this'll help get them back out there.

Telstra is the major Australian phone co, and covers all over the country. You might also want to check out Optus or AAPT, though I have no idea on toll-free possibilities.

Thing about Telstra is, and I discussed this w/ a Telstra rep as we were trying to determine if getting a Skype number in Sydney for my in-laws to call us is, that it's actually CHEAPER for people who live in the outback to call the States than it is for them to call the larger cities.

My in-laws live in Dubbo, and it's cheaper for them to ring us direct here in the States than it would be for them to call a Sydney number.
