Default Phone Numbers in AU

Hi there, was just wondering how people go about getting phone numbers in AU?
is it possible to forward multiple numbers to one phone number?
For instance, if I buy a $2.95 woolworths sim start pack and activate it, could I go to a website like sendmycall.com and forward multiple numbers to that one number for every account I want to open on ebay?
Does anyone recommend other websites or other ways in which I should go about this?
Any help would be appreciated

Hey kozji,
i'm interested - does this mean you can verify your ebay account with a phone number instead of verifying your paypal account - or do you have to verify both??

Well the same number on the paypal would have to match ebay. I haven't received any calls yet from either, but I will continue to have an activate number just in case. Verified paypal through CC and ebay through linking paypal.

Whats the need for redirection? I just buy a vodafone sim card, activate it and put the details on my paypal and ebay sign up and have never been verified on any of the 30 accounts that I have. It seems they are happy enough to drop the 2 small deposits into my bank account and leave it at that. If they were to call however, Id just pop the specific sim card into my phone and wait. I did select no phone contact on my ebay account as well.

Default Landline or Mobile for Ebay AU

quick question, does anyone know if Ebay actually DOES require a landline number for verification or can you use a mobile number? I just got the dreaded mc049 email after having my account open 3 weeks. I had put a dodgy phone number down, I just made up a number similar to my old one.

Not sure what to do now. This has been my one sticking point, the credit card, address, new name, everything else has been fine.Hiu

it has to actually be a valid number(which you own) as their is a possibility they might call that number for verification

Mobile would be fine, you will just need to make sure you have a spare one for your e-bay account which is always on. You can pick up tons of cheap old school mobiles on e-bay i got 5 for $80.00 they just sit on the charger and yeah i get calls all the time from pay-pal. Sim cards only cost $3.00.

Hey people,

I am in AU too and was wondering how to go about phone verification in AU. Buying different sim cards for each stealth a/c seems impossible for me solely due to the number of mobile phones you will need to carry around. Checked out Toll free forwarding, having the most basic option costs about $20/month. Also checked out VOIP choice website, and was just confused as what I had to do. If all fails, I will be willing to pay $20/month for each stealth a/c I create.

Anyone have more suggestions? Any sneaky ninja tactics that's not covered by Stealth Book?

Have a great one!

If you need to have a phone, vodafone sell one for $29 and like invader_adam said you just leave them at home on the charger. Wow, thats only $31 you've had to spend all up for phone calls from paypal or ebay as opposed to $240.00 per year for call forwarding, new lines etc. Why anyone would do it the more expensive way I don't understand.

I don't use mobiles but I do have one for EB and PP and emergencies. I have purchased a couple of second hand mobiles and 2 sim cards for future use. Question is, don't you have to purchase credit to actually get the phone to work?

I have 5 landline numbers all directed to my one mobile. Having 5 mobiles on charge all the time would annoy the s*** out of me. It costs about $22aud a month. I'm happy to pay that if the accounts will be safe and I'm always able to take a call.
