Hello to all

Org-feed.el sounds wonderful. Regretfully, the most useful feature of
reQall -- the collection of items by phone -- is not available outside
of USA, Canada or England. Does anybody know about an alternative in
Germany that could be used in the same way with org-feed?

Greetings,

Sven

Dial2do has more European coverage, but not Germany yet. See 
http://www.dial2do.com/faq . Maybe they will add Germany soon. As a work 
around can you access any of their numbers via a VOIP connection, which 
might be cheaper than an international call.

Actually, it does work so long as you register with a US phone number.
I used one that I found here (http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/).

Then you can use your Skype account to call the reQall 1-800 number,
which is free. Mind you, it is a pain having to say the number every
time, and I found that the voice recognition was not great - probably
my accent :(

Cheers

Will
