UK PhonePost'ing [Nov. 14th, 2003|01:53 pm]
The Love Bug
Those of you who have been awake recently, will know of the new PhonePost feature in LiveJournal (for paid/permanent accounts only, I'm afraid). You may have also noticed that all the phone numbers for the service are in the US. Well, thanks to advice from a friendly person (I'll update with his name when I get home, 'cos I've forgotten), you can actually call the US from the UK for the cost of a national rate call.

To use the PhonePost service:
  • Go to the Post by Phone Settings page

  • Enter your phone number in full international format.
    (so if your number is 020 7123 4567, you'd enter 00442071234567)

  • Enter a 4-6 digit PIN to authenticate yourself when you call.
    (This should not be a PIN you already use elsewhere)

  • Click [Save]

  • Call the JustPhone international gateway number: 0870 794 0280

  • When the service answers, enter one of the PhonePost phone numbers, e.g.: 00 1 212 202 6708

  • When the nice American lady answers, enter your full international format phone number (as entered above), and press #

  • Then enter your PIN number, and press #

  • Then just follow the prompts from there! :o)

Enjoy! :o)

Hmmmm... *ponders* Nah, I'll stick to my good old fashioned microphone and AllRecorder.

But thanks!

Cool gizmo, cheers for that.

If you want cheaper than national rate, use Superline - you dial 1461 before you dial the other number... can register your mobile to it too, 2.5p/min to the states. They take the money (if you spend any) from a debit card at the end of the month, it's great value and you can see all your calls online and stuff! Damn I should work for them or something.
