Default Virtual Number vs Actual physical SIM

when i try to withdraw funds from PayPal, PayPal is asking for phone verification. I have checked the forum and some people suggest to use Virtual numbers (VYKE, Text Now, Text You, SMSPVA) while others suggest not to use virtual numbers as PayPal can detect that and put the account at risk.

Has anybody been using virtual numbers for PP verification without any issue?

Yes, google voice works very well for usa, you must use this from the onset of account creation. If you are planning to use google voice after creating account, this will take some couple of months before it is recognised by paypal.

For uk paypals, i order sim cards on ebay.

Thanks! Yes this is after account creation and its a UK PP account. I found some sellers on Ebay who are selling UK SIM's. Thanks for the idea. Hopefully SIM's continue to work internationally for extended period of time because sometime cell phone providers terminate SIM's if it is not used in the country for a while.
