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 :)

I completley agree. I'm a plus user, I upgraded specifically so I could voicepost.
I wasn't really willing to pay long distance charges, so the idea of a tole-free number really appealed to me. And now it doesn't even work for all of us in canada? that's just crap, sorry, but it's true.
All of the people who are plus users, who upgraded specifically so they could voicepost, and live outside the states, are now screwed. I'm considering going back to a basic account until this gets fixed. When they ask why, i'll say because the reason I updated doesn't work.
Please. get. a. number. for. people. outside. of. the. US!.
