Default Google voice Using out of state number?

I've tried three different tracfone's none will receive the paypal text. For my first account I just made a google voice and put the voice number on paypal and cell on ebay, but now I can't get a local google voice number. So will paypal freak if they see a a number with a california area code on an account that's address is in georgia?

Not all Tracfones work for receiving 6 digit short codes. Open the back of the phone. If the phone has a white SIM card with BLUE printing, it will NOT receive the codes. If it has a white SIM card with BLACK printing, then it WILL receive the codes.

If you need to, keep your non-working tracfone with the stealth area code on file with PayPal and add the GV number as secondary. Verify the secondary number.

Well, I wouldn't say they are USELESS, but yes. I don't see another way, except for what I posted above. Unfortunately, there is no way - that I know of - to tell which Tracfones will or won't work until you open the package. Two models that almost always work are the LG 305c and the LG 306g - but those models are not usually the ones on sale for $5.

That is why I recommend keeping the Tracfone number with the correct are a code on file with PayPal.

None of this is absolutely necessary, but it could put you in a sticky situation if PayPal wants to text you a code and gives you no other options.
