I don't know if anyone has complained yet (so I'll step up...) but last I checked, Alaska was still a part of the United States.
I really really really really really REALLY hate toll-free numbers that do not work in Alaska!
I'm just sayin... it's stupid and I hate it.
thank you!!! thank you !!! thank you!!! that's exactly what I was gonna say!!!! Alaska ISSSSSS a part of the United States!!!! But no workage here!! hey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
hook us up!!!!
were cold..have nothing else to do....
A Canadian # would make having a paid account actually worth while, so please find us one (we are so close by after all). Why not try Shaw?
Woo. 'Cuz I was definitely disappointed when I tried to drunk dial the internet.
I was just looking at mobile posting options yesterday and was momentarily excited by phone posts. Not a great option for Canadians.
im an hour north of the border in canada. thats sad, get a canadian #
I'm 15 minutes away (Niagara). I feel your annoyance...
It's working for me -- can you double-check the number you're calling?
Okay five days later now... when the hell are the old numbers going back up? Any of them? Could we have an update here?
Further, I want an extension of paid time for this, since I primarily have a paid account to phone post and now cannot do so (Canadian). I used to call the Buffalo number (and I didn't mind the long distance really, so I'll take the old set up over this freaking toll-free only good in the US number ANY DAY). I have a project I am working on that I was counting on phone posts for, and now it will be delayed due to a nearly week-long outage.
LOL, I like that I attempted to post a comment bitching about the fact that LJ likes to keep adding new things without fixing the problems it already has, and I got that "missing parameters" or whatever the hell it is error instead.
Except you'd be replying to a post where we said that we identified broken voice posting numbers and we came up with a resolution to the problem, thus rendering your point moot. ;)
I don't give a damn about phone posting BUT more characters in lj names would be awesome.
This has been going on for months. Are we getting reimbursed for these months that we've missed?
I have to agree, especially seeing as it was only ever offered for Americans. Sure, you can dial the numbers from another country but it costs an awful lot of money. I love voice posts but hate the fact i'm paying for something I can very rarely use..and now can't at all.
Has there been a time limit placed on voice posts? I've noticed recently that all my posts cut off at 5:08, so have several others on my f-list. Is there a cap in place, or is there something wrong that we need to adjust?
And here I'd been thinking the problem was my cell phone network; it would probably have been a good idea to email paid users about this.
I just tried to dial in, and for my cell phone, got the message that the number was outside of my calling area - although my calling area is the entire United States. So I tried the landline, and got a fast busy signal.
This is pretty aggravating.
Chalk me up as another paid member who thinks that we should be reimbursed for this - voice posts are the single biggest reason I have to be a paid member. The 888 number doesn't work - or not for me, anyway - and I don't have any other way to make voice posts.
How much longer is this going to continue? I've already missed posting a number of things that I would have really liked to have recorded, and I'm getting pretty pissed off.
this is my favorite feature
