Default PayPal security check

So here's the deal, my Mac just died on me so I opened one of my accounts up on my iPad, which I don't normally do, went to purchase a new laptop on eBay and I get the usual security check from PayPal saying they don't recognize the device.

So I go through the check, choose my number and as usual it says "the number doesn't appear to be registered in your name". The question is, has anyone ever passed this check with a prepaid phone registered in the name used on PayPal because I've tried that before and it still didn't work.

I know the payment will go through eventually but it's real annoying, let me know what you guys think, thanks

I use virgin prepaid but doesn't seem to make any difference whether the names match or not, still says the same thing, that the phone # isn't registered in my name.

It's the same number that I made the account with which I still have access to, I think they still only accept land lines for these type of verifications, not sure.

Yea it's been an ongoing thing for awhile, was hoping to come up with a workaround, so far the only thing that works is just waiting it out

This is a horsesh*t verification that is impossible to pass. I have called paypal 4 different times and spent 45 minutes each time WITH NO HELP. Never able to send the text or automated call to my number. Cant send payment or pay invoices. Reps had no clue what was going on. Total waste of time. NOW its happening on ANOTHER account. This sh*t is ridiculous! The phone numbers are the same ones that have been attached to the accounts and are verified to the account and I have never changed them. GOOD LUCK...i havent had any.

This has happen to me also on a number of my accounts they wont let you add new phone number/ bank account etc after its been limited ( Even tho it says you can in the resolution center)... i dunno whats that about Im thinking its just another way paypal can get you to abandon your account.

ive done that also & lost thousands $$$ until i started focusing on all my limitation problems. I do know a way around it !!! ive had many limitation problems that ive had to figure out on my own bcuz no one here could tell me!!!

@phaz0rz there's no need for your sarcasm I was simply saying i had to think harder and work harder for what I was trying to accomplish. I understand the forum members are busy.. now that Ive been doing this for a while

I'M BUSY TOO managing multiple ebay/paypal accounts doing very well for myslef might i add.. isn't this a HELP FORUM? Keep in MIND phaz0rz ...usually when you HELP some one YOU HAVE TO BE "bothered to solve someone else's issue"

Nyco, I'm sorry for being rude. I haven't had my coffee yet. My comment was out of line and did not contribute anything.

What did you "try over a few times"? Trying to verify your phone, or cancel and try and make the payment again later?

I find it interesting that actually worked out for you.
Typically if you keep on trying, your account will get this soft limit even longer, and you might even receive a real limit on the account.

I spam the button when I get the verification request.
Usually pushes it through

Google voice works with any phone, but you have to set up the account with that Gvoice number

Whenever I click "continue" to receive the automated call or text message, it always says "this number is not registered in your name" and if I click continue again, it will say call or email paypal. So I'm not sure what you guys are doing to push it through??
