Default Questions about wifi tether

Hello I currently have verizon and have been using them for for my internet through foxfi. I have used this method in the past for two account that were legit and is now banned. I understand everytime I reset my phone I am given a new static ip but if I were to create another account and down the line it was to connect on the same ip that my previous accounts had been linked to will I be flagged? Lastly wouldn't you think that thousands of people are using the same ip day in and day out, seeing as it is from verizon?

Thanks in advance

Ip alone is in general not enough to link accounts. THe problem is if you start doing this on daily basis consistently, you will get linked and caught.

I personally don't like taking risks, so I never use a pool of IP that is used by everyone
and I stick to having everything clean.
MUCH less trouble if you know how to operate this way.

However if you want to tinker and try something new on some accounts you don't mind burning, you may find something new.

You mean Dynamic IP...Static IP's don't change or hardly ever change at all.

1st, You should ALWAYS log IP changes.
2nd, It takes more than repeat IP to get flagged if it happens long time between account logins.

Ebay/PP isn't concerned with what ISP is logging in.....but they will get suspicious if you use VPN's or other weird methods people try to use such as TOR, etc.

It's easy, just use excel do a search on the IP in your spreadsheet.
