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 :)

As a paid user in a part of the United States not likely to ever be a priority for a local voice posting number, thank you!

Just now realizing this?

I posted a complaint about that a year and a half ago.. The response seemed to be the removal of half of the numbers to call.. including all of the numbers in Michigan...

A few months ago, the Texas numbers I used to call disappeared, too...

Are you sure your provider was giving you your money's worth?

Yes, today every single one of our voice post numbers was down, rather than the handful that were down (and were subsequently removed from the page).

Yay! I love the toll free number. Having to pay to post made me reluctant to do any voice posts since I no longer have cheap long distance. *huggles the LJ staff for finding us a toll free option*

Awesome! I was hoping you guys would do this eventually, as I didn't have a phone post number in my area and had to phone post from my cell phone (free long distance FTW!)

woot!

Was a toll-free number ending in 558-6423 not available? That'd be easy to remember. 1-888-LJ-VOICE would be cool. The current number doesn't even spell anything. :x

It's a pity phone books can only remember numbers than spell words.
