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 :)

Canada for the win! We could use some local dialing numbers, even if we have options such as shaw or vonage that do voip...

Bell...

I have a plan with Bell that allows limitless calling to the U.S., so I know they have a system that could work...and to my knowledge, Bell services almost every province. So yeah, you wouldn't think it'd be that hard - most paid users have been having to pay long distance on top of everything else to post, and it doesn't have to be that way!

*waves Canadian flag too*

SaskTel (the Saskatchewan Telephone company) offers a bundle with unlimited long distance across North America for a flat fee. But, of course, it only works when the numbers work. ;)
