Default New GMail Account Creation wants Phone #??

Hi

Yesterday i tried to make a new GMail acc - it asked me to put in a phone number for verification.

Does anyone know what has triggered this or is it random - i tried to make another and it asked me for one again.

I was using a new user account and Fresh IP.

Needless to say I did'nt bother

Yeah, this happens, not MAC address, likely cookies/IP.

yeah just use google voice numbers to verify. Then delete the google voice account when you max out the emails it can use, rinse and repeat.

It happened to me with my brand new ipad first time using it.
Probably a new requirement, nothing to worry an easy fix

It could possibly be random as well to ensure you are a 'human'.

You can set up your eBay/PayPal accounts to send your emails in just text format.

FYI, yahoo is starting to charge money in order to forward emails to another account. You have to purchase there yahoo plus subscription in order to enable this feature. I created a couple of accounts and later realized, they were useless as I would have to manually check em'.
