Default Which is better?

Google Voice vs Tracfone?

A lot of people believe they get a 0/0 limit because they used a google voice number. If I use Tracfone, i get a few free minutes which I can use to verify right? What about if ebay wants to speak with me in the future?

Vanilla Visa Card or...?

People seem to prefer using a vanilla visa to anything else. Can I get the $25 or do I need a reloadable one?

Tracfone is your preferred option and has been for a long while

A lot of members have been having issues with specific models of Tracs not receiving texts, so just search on the forum and see which ones work and which don't. (stupid blue/white sim card tracs - which are the only ones I have!!)

The keyword is "GIFT CARD", you can get a set amount or get the kind that you can preload an exact amount. The minimum is $20 + $4.95 activation. So again, "GIFT CARD".

I get the feeling you trying to tell me something, but its not hitting home. Just need a prepaid card to activate for ebay. If its a gift card that will count. Are you telling me its a gift card because I should plan to buy more or...

Use Tracfones to create the accounts then switch them to google voice after creation.

You need a GIFT CARD!
Not sure what your question is after that.

Every account will need its own card.

i didn't understand why he was telling it was a gift card. It's like he's saying I need to understand it's only a giftcard. Why put emphasis on it twice? Just curious (:

Because the other non gift cards dont always or sometimes never work. He was being clear to buy a GIFT CARD not a prepaid visa for example.

There must be hundreds of threads about people buying the wrong card and it not working.

I put emphasis on the term Gift Card because we've told people before to get gift cards and they come back bitching...then we find out they didn't get a Gift Card! Which we were clear as day about it.

A member above you mentioned using the tracphone to confirm your ebay and paypal account and then using it on google voice from then on. That way you avoid paying every month. What do you think about this?

Personally I've never done it, doesn't mean it can't work but at the end of the day it's up to you as the owner of the account to decide.

when you buy a lg440g tracfone does it come with 60 days of service automatically or do you have to buy service? From what people say they always come with a free 20 minutes (is that 20 minutes for 60 days? and then if you don't buy more minutes you lose the number). But I don't want to buy one + 90 days of service if it already has 60 on it. The account im opening i want to keep an active phone on it in case ebay calls.

As far as I know you get 60 days of service along with your 20 free minutes.

Of course, it's crucial to keep an active phone number and one you can answer OR call back if a problem arises.

Now, I know that with Google Voice you can forward a certain amount of GV numbers to a real phone number, i believe it's 3 or 4 but not sure which it is.

What happens if i use the 20 minutes up, still have 30 days left, and then ebay calls? Will I get a notification that someone called so I can go buy minutes?

forward numbers to GV? So im guessing some people use 3 to 4 google voice numbers , and forward them to one number and just keep that tracfone number in service. So now they get 3 to 4 account for the cost of one tracfone and its service? ...Genius lol

Not sure. Just change the resgistration # to GV after you create the account....problem solved.

You can't forward multiple Google Voice #'s to one phone...only one # per phone at a time. But eBay will never know as long as you set up the Voicemail correctly.
