Default Vumber: eBay Phone Verification Now No Good 4/23/2009

I recently used a service called Vumber to verify my ebay account by phone.

Vumber gives you a disposable number that forwards to your phone (Virtual Phone Number). Works alot like Tossibledigits (which doesn't work w/ eBay anymore).

The service has a 30 Day Trial and $4.99 after that + $1.99 for extra numbers. So its free for 30 Days. I live in a normal size area and they had my area code. Also you can call out from your disposable number. I haven't tried it to call EB or PP but I called a couple friends and they said my disposable number was on the caller ID. You just have to create a PIN after you signup, call your number, enter your pin, then enter the number you want to call. Also has many other features.

I went to list on a 5 month old account and eBay said I have to verify my identity by phone. I changed my number in my account and had them call me. They called and asked me to hit 4 if im expecting a call, I did, then they gave me a 4 digit code (repeated 3 times) then I entered it into eBay and it went thru!

Worked Like A Charm!

If you Vant a disposable try Vumber (Modee talk)

Also they have a referral program so if anyone wants to be kind enough to send me their email address before you sign up, I will refer you and I will get credit. Thanks in advance.

Can't you just delete your old number without paying the additional $1.99?

how long did you have to wait for your vumber number to get activated. I call the vumber they assigned me and a message from a guys voice says" The number is unallocated." What does this mean

is the pin the one from the vumber settings to access outgoing calls? If yes, I can't even get to that point as when i call my vumber number, it says the number is unallocated. Can you try and calll your vumber and see if your forwarded phone rings? Let me know as if yours rings then i will have to contact customer support in the morning? thanks

Good Post Lizard---EXCELLENT!
Once some more members verify it works for them--you should pm Aspkin, so he can include this as an alternate number in his next Update..

>>THESE kind of Informative posts--are the Reason I will be around here for a long time-- This is kinda like a 12 step program, dealing with ebay/paypal--

screwedagain-make sure that Vumber has verified the phone you are forwarding to, if your having problems pm me

daoud-so it doesn't ring at all when ebay calls??, I haven't run into that, everytime I tell ebay to call it rings about 10 seconds later...only thing I can think of is to make sure the number is entered correctly in ebay...

I have read on here before that if the area code is within 100 miles of the zip code it should work, I tried one about 75 miles away a few months ago and it worked. Otherwise you can make a new ebay account based on the zip code you used in Vumber...

As stated above in my second post I used this for ebay but hadn't had to use it for Paypal yet...

so today I had to use it to verify a Limited Account and they said the address didn't match (eventhough the area code and zip are in the same city) luckily I can get to the address I used to get the piece of mail they are sending...so it looks like it works for ebay listing but not Paypal verification

now you are saying that the number must match the address, how would they know that the phone belong to that particular address.
