Default Paypal wants to send text or call and it doesn't work? help?

I am using a mobile phone with sim. prepaid phone. I use a clean computer with ip etc. and all stealth techniques. When i try to buy an item on ebay or send any amount on my verified paypal. It will ask to send a text or call for a quick verification. I click to text or call and nothing works. Its like it didn't even try. Then it says it can't verify. It didn't send a text nor try to call?! HELP? This is now happening on 2 accounts of mine. Never had this issue before.

Sounds like a glitch.
You might have to call in to get it fixed...

I've always had to click "resend text", then two texts come through at the same time.

It happened on another account I've had for 9 months. I know they will ask the credit questions when I call so... I'm worried about losing the account.
It seems like a glitch on their end but there are no issues when I open a new account.

I'm so confused. Password change didn't work.

Happens to me every time I make an account. Are you not given the option to "resend the text"?

I found my solution, put the junk in the cart and leave it in there for a few days...during those few days try checking out....on the 4th day you should be golden....this is for my first purchase anyways. They sent verification code to my gvoice on a $700 purchase...so it works.....before tho I never got the code....maybe the just fixed there crappy system

So... new system wants the phone to be registered in the persons name. That is the fix.

My paypal is using Google Voice.
When I try to use the Paypal balance, it sometimes requires to verify the phone number.
It always says that the phone number can not be verified.
How many days do you need to wait?

4 days, keep trying a couple times a day. Eventually it will go thru. One time took me 2 weeks....but the other day it was first that the verification worked with a gvoice number....couldnt believe it....maybe the retarded site fixed there stuff...saying that banks dont send verification codes to voip numbers....so paypal and all them r on the same system.

Getting codes from text is iffy no matter the carrier. There are times I get it within seconds and times I get it within minutes and other times... nothing.

So I have the automated system call me instead and tell me what the code is.
This has always worked for me

The reason was that the phone number has to be registered to the PayPal account name.

Is there anyway around this, is it possible to call and have them update it.

Let me guess

You PP is new, and the fund is from ebay, which very restrictly to use or send it right away after it completed

Withdraw to bank or check is your only choice

EBay account is fairly new but even when the customer gets their item and three business days afterwords or more… I could not send out anything without a quick verification by text or calling. Same with a five dollar purchase or anything on eBay. The phone number has to match the records of the account holder.

How did you discover this information? Did you call paypal and they told you directly or is it just an educated guess from other factors?

In the past I've used prepaid phones without issue and now I'm having this same problem. No error messages or anything, text just doesn't come.

The thing I am most curious about is how they're getting their information. Even prepaid phones that were created in the same name don't work. They must either block all prepaid phones outright or they're doing a public records check and seeing if the number is associated with the name. Obviously a newly created prepaid phone wouldn't show up on a public records check for a while, but neither would a newly created contract phone.

I doubt paypal has direct access to the phone companies account records, so they have to be using public records, in my opinion. How one could go about getting a phone number associated with a name on public records then becomes the problem.

That was what the agent on the phone told me. He explained how everything worked while I acted dumb on the phone. So it came directly from PayPal. They said paypal’s System does the look up etc. what sucks is having multiple accounts that have money in them that you can’t move out of the account if you wanted to until you call PayPal... then you know what happens from there.
