Default Phone Verification to lift holds - 2015 / 2016 solution?

Hey guys,

Accounts I've been creating lately have been saying that they have a ~$2,000 / month non-hold amount before the 21 days kick in, as long as I verify a phone number.

I used to use Tracfone's for account verification (and Google Voice before that), but it doesn't seem to work anymore, at least for this. Using either of those say: "This phone number doesn't appear to be in your name." or something along those lines.

Any other methods you guys can suggest? This seems like a tricky one!

I understand that, but when I use a tracfone / GV number, once I go to verify it, it says the billing address on the number record does not show that its in my name, use another number.

I am also experiencing this problem with Tracfone.

I need an alternative.

Sorry to hear that man, but glad I'm not the only one in this boat.

At what step do you phone verify ?


Can eBay and PayPal have different phone numbers

I don't know, I don't use eBay. Just PayPal. And I verify after receiving a payment and it says "Your payments will be placed in a 21 day hold. This can be avoided by confirming your identity via phone" or whatever.

Sadly, I haven't gotten that yet. I used to get straight up 21 day holds, but now, I instead get 21 day holds with "PLease confirm your identity to release up to $2k per month" etc. etc.
