Default reinstate phone used to create paypal account

So i created my paypal account with a tracfone number 2 years back and of course like a idiot i let it expire. I am now trying to add a bank account and the only way it seems i am going to be able to verify it is by receiving a call to that original number. I tried calling tracfone a bunch of times but they kept telling me they can do anything as the number has expired. Does anyone know if theres a way i could buy the number back if it is in fact inactiveor is there anyway of forwarding calls from that number to a different number without actually having access to that number. I know its a shot in the dark but im running out of optioms on verifing bank account. Tried adding a new tracfone number aswell and had no luck

Yes i can change it to any phone number i want but as discussed many times on the forum paypal needs the original number used to open account to verify adding a new bank account which has been inactive for about a year and cant get it back according to tracfone.

Though tracphone says it has expired....is it still available to repurchase.
This is the problem with these companies...if they are expired their is every chance someone else has it.
Is there anyway of tracphone possibly still having that number?

Tracfone number will be deactived on Service End Date when you do not purchase and add airtime and will be removed within 60 days. This number is still available? If not, there is no ways, you are not lucky.

sure, it's a policy of Tracfone. Do you try to call PP? Explain your situation and maybe they can help. Good luck

Just a heads up on calling. I tried doing that on one of my accounts that has same problem as OP states and got asked the database questions due to wanting to add a new number. Had a baby crying in the background so that was my excuss to hang up on him.

Did you try calling the old phone number just to see if it has been reassigned to a new person? Does anyone pick up?

If he used real info, maybe a phone call will help, but if he has stealth, don't call. I just give a maybe way, because there is no way in situation.

Sorry if my opinion is not right a

Call paypal and tell them to add the bank account manually for you because it keeps giving you errors when you try to add it. Tell them no matter how many times you try it won't let you. They should ask you for the info and add it for you.

True on real info - call if needed because this account can be saved....anyhow, I don't recommend ever using real info.

Np Mrjame just good to clarify
