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


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 :)

Agreed! It sucks to be paying for a paid account and not get all the features :x

Canadian here. The 12th one.

I'm sorry. but I'm bloody TIRED of waiting. I've been waiting since you guys first set this up!!!! This is ridiculous. I'm paying for lj, and I don't get to use all the features? What a load of crap.
Don't get me wrong, I love my lj-land, but.... Canada is right next door! How hard is it to get a number? Step it up people.

Pretty Please???

me too!

I just looked into mobile posting options the other day and was momentarily excited by the phone post option. Far too costly for Canadians. Hope you can figure something out....

Vonage, Shaw, CCNet... All of them have plans for calling to the US for free for like $40 a month...

Joining the Canadian bandwagon!

I love your Mountie icon. :)

I would think that LJ could set something up with Bell, given that it does serve the majority of Canada, doesn't it? (At the very least they could've given us a North American 800 number and not just a U.S.-based one! Le sigh.)

Re: Joining the Canadian bandwagon!

Yeah, I am really tired of this sort of nonsense. Our international telephone country code in Canada is 1, just like the US, so why couldn't the toll free number be set up properly in the first place?

Ugh! STILL??

I was only recently wondering if I should check again to see if they'd sorted it out yet, but considering your comment just came in a day or two ago, I guess that's my answer!!

I know I can't really complain, because I have a Permanent Account, but all of the paid users who are getting ripped off should be up in arms about now. Besides, I have a chronic illness that sometimes makes it hard for me to even get to my computer, and I've always found it very helpful to just reach for my phone and leave a post for my friends. Errrgh. This is beyond frustrating now!
