The issue here is when u trip up a security measure and than they ask to verify ur location by your phone number , it is,not in the phone that u use when creating the account

2 ways to get around this. 1st make sure you have a working number before creating the paypal. Whatever tracfone gv etc. Keep it alive as long as the paypal is alive. If you messed up and lost your original number I've never got a new number to work. 2nd solution is an emergency only kind of can't post it but it works to avoid this issue.

Don't they only ask you to confirm location by phone when you get limited?

No sometimes if you do something like add a new bank, or log in with a new IP or from a new location and try to withdraw funds than they will ask to send a code to your phone , and it will only work 10% of the Tim because it verifies thee phone with the address and usually comes back we can not verify, I received this twice when starting stealth , the key is to not trip this up, now I operatee from same user account all the time and correct IP and never an issue in a year

I've never had it happen to me like how you explained. The only time they have asked to confirm location by phone is after limitation. That is very strange, I hope I never occur that problem.

I have similar situation. I added tracfone and it says "we're going to send you a text message" and I click ok send now and it never comes through and when I try to get them to call it says cannot verify.

I can also go in under phone numbers and click to confirm and it will say "we have sent a confirmation code" but the text message never comes through.

That happened to me once. I let it sit for a day or two then used a different IP to log in...the message was gone. I sent only 50 bucks to the bank once a week until it trusted me then I enlarged it up slowly.

Basic things that could affect verifying a phone number would be following instructions. Lets see:
123-456-7890
123-4567890
123456-7890
1234567890
These are all different for many sites. Sometimes, we rush into putting characters between numbers when they are not required. I have used several providers, no problem verifying phone number.

Could it be something with the records on the tracfone side of things? I noticed they didn't have a space for the state and city and you kind of had to jam it all in one box.

Mobile phone numbers don't confirm location. Only landline numbers do that.

They don't. The OP was trying to confirm location on a US Paypal account.

Same problem.
I have two business accounts and both registered with the same phone number (home, land-line). But now I'm living at the other state and can't access this phone.
If I try to add a new bank account Paypal ask me to receive phone call to this phone. And I can't add the new phone - "we couldn't verify this phone".
What is the solution? Anybody help me?

Thanks

This happened to my fiancÚ had a warning message on his PayPal account about confirming identity. Said they needed to call the number to verify identity. It was on a new account after using it a couple if days. He was able to get the call and confirm.

I just bought a new stealth account that was already verified. I linked my new bank account to it and paypal made the 3 small deposits and i linked it. Now when i try to transfer money into my account, paypal has a pop up that wants to call me to verify that this bank account it mine.. my stealth account came with a pre-paid cell phone...

What should i do?

Does anyone know what kind of questions will paypal ask me to verify this account?

I cant give the real name on the bank account because its under my real name i was banned from ebay..

does anyone have any good advice with this situation..

What are you using for a phone number? also, please change your flag to the Country you reside in, this makes it easier when giving advice.
