At ÜberConference, making sure you have the best possible experience on every call is very important to us. Call quality is a main priority for us, and we’re always monitoring and measuring quality metrics and testing out different configurations, partners, and settings. As we get close to exiting our beta period, we have made some significant improvements to our service, and will be migrating users to our newest platform. We have started emailing users about this transition and most will get a new ÜberConference number assigned to them as part of this process. Everything else should be the same. You’ll just use a different number to dial into, and ÜberConference should be even better!

So LeBron is going home to Cleveland. Or should he have said he’s going home to the 216, (which is the area code for Cleveland).

It’s about time that we begin to acknowledge that area codes have become as important a part of our identity as what NFL team’s bumper sticker we have on our second beater car. (I mean, come on, you’re not putting a bumper sticker on the nice car you driving to your cousin’s wedding in.)

In fact, with cell phones now, people hold onto their phone numbers long after they have left the place.  My oldest daughter, who went to college and worked in the San Francisco area for ten years, moved to Brooklyn four and a half years ago.  Her cell number still starts with 415, the coveted area code for San Francisco.

Why not give it up? Why not just get a New York area code?  Well, because, I believe, the area code has become a part of our identity in this era. Oh, someone says to her in New York City after she gives them her number, what area code is that?  San Francisco, she says. They’ll smile. So you’re from San Francisco? Yup, she says and smiles back.  Suddenly you know a lot more about that person than a hundred questions on a dating site will ever reveal.  It means my home is elsewhere.  This is where I live now, but I’m really from the 415.  It’s who I am.

So maybe LeBron going home to Cleveland also is about reclaiming the 216 as the authentic area code of his soul.

“There is no other service here in Canada that even approximates what UberConference does,” said Elise Aymer of EN Consulting in Toronto. “Other conference call services are prohibitively expensive especially for small business and communication groups. I am very pleased with the service so far.”

As always, you can dial-in to join an UberConference call from over 40 countries. Anyone around the world, in any country, can also join an UberConference call through their Chrome browser for free. Test to see if your computer can accept calls here.
