Default Ebay and mobile phones

Hi all,
Just a quick question. If I bought say 4 stealth accounts and 4 second hand iphones and downloaded the ebay app on each and only used them on 4g is there any way they can get linked.

Technically, the only way they could get linked is if you mismanaged them. Sounds like a nice separate plan - I would monitor the IP on the 4g network to make sure no crosslinking IP use

I've been doing this since 2015. Cheap prepaid TMobile smart phones. Recently had an account burned for the first time. upon logging in with a brand new phone, brand new account I bought here for unknown reason. I purchased 2 high limit accounts, one worked fine still selling to this day. The other I Logged in and boom immediate ask for docs....Maybe they didn't like the IP from Chicago when the account was made elsewhere. Idk never had that issue ever with accounts I bought From here. I'd still say separate phone per account is solid as it's what's always worked for me.

If I were to buy a phone for this purpose how would I log into a different account? Would I have to factory reset the phone before I used the phone for a different account or is there a simpler way or is it not possible?

Dumbest reply ever...
That said, here's the deal on creating and operating Ebay/PayPal accounts using cell phones.
PRO'S:
1. Kills a few birds with one stone. You get an IP, real phone number, unique camera
and unique operating system with a cell phone...all in one. Everything you need for an unsinkable account.
2. Low upfront cost. Many prepaid android phones are free or little cost, monthly billing for talk, text and enough data start at around $25 per month. The only upfront expense you have besides the phone and a month of service is the VCC needed to verify PayPal account. No need for PC, Laptop, camera, VPN, etc.
3. Quality mobile IP pools (using sprint, t-mobile, Verizon, at&t networks) are trusted more than data center IP's that you would get from purchasing a VPN, therefore less likely to raise flags with PayPal and Ebay upon account creation.
4. Allows you to use both Ebay and PayPal apps and allows you to monitor your accounts at work when you are away from home. Replying to emails and messages is a breeze. Calling Ebay or PayPal if needed is a breeze (no need to spoof or worry about phone number mismatch)
CON'S:
1. You can only safely operate one account per phone. Phones are very intrusive, trying two or more on a single phone will link each account everytime.
2. Annual cost of service at $25 per month is $300 vs. $120 for a fresh dedicated VPN you would use when operating accounts on a PC or laptop. Operating 10 accounts a year will cost you $3000 and you'll have more phones lying around your house than a drug dealer.
3. Although Apps help, they are limited on Ebay features you just won't have using a browser on a PC. Listing is fast and easy on a phone, but creating nice listings with fonts, colors and professionalism is tough on an android app.
4. Your stealth account location should be at most 30 miles away from where you are logging into your phone. This means creating your own accounts instead of purchasing an account (which likely will be far away). As stated earlier, phones are intrusive, they know where you are! It's a good thing as it builds trust, bad if you're trying to operate an account in a different state or country.

Also remember, you get what you pay for. The cheapest mobile network suppliers have the highest risk of getting an abused telephone number or banned IP pool. You may find yourself paying $35, $45 or even $50 a month for enough data and a quality service provider. Deals are out there, but you gotta spend some time and find them. You'll want to make sure you have nice margins on your sales or operating expenses will kill you (just like any business)
Important: Disable WIFI from your phone and NEVER touch it. Use data only, otherwise every advantage a seperate phone account gives you is wasted as you will link something somewhere.

What I do is I have about 8 Ebay accounts and about 8 iPhones. I have Verizon and I just swap my SIM card out. Each PHONE has its unique MAC address. It doesn’t matter what SIM card you put in. So I use one SIM card and just swap it in between the 8 accounts. It’s awesome and easy to do. I wouldn’t do it any other way.

So you only pay for 1 phone service per month? What about having different phone numbers?

It can work fine. The only slight risk you can run into is if the APP has been used on the phone before with a banned account.

This makes no sense.
Mobile phone has real phone number, so operating an account on it using a risky VoiP instead of the real number makes for horrible advice.

also if you want to run off a phone you could just use the browser on your phone and not download the app.

Whilst this is possible and there are advantages to it, in the long run when scaling these accounts, it will become a tedious task. You need to ask what works for you.
