Default Does it matter what kind of cell phone that I use to hook up to Ebay?

Just wondering if it matters to Ebay/Paypal which Cell phone that I purchase to hook up to a new or already existing account?

I used to use the Vigin PayLo phones 2 years ago...
And recently have used the Trac-Phone a few times...

I just wasn't sure if there was a better phone or option or if they are all received the same?

I know that some of the companies have recycled their numbers in the past and you could end up possibly getting an old number that was once recognized as attached to a previous ebay/PP account that was suspended or limited.
I know the likelihood of having a "Tainted" number is very slim but are there any other issues or reasons why a particular phone might work better for either the general verification or just the "Trust-ability" Factor?


Any thoughts on which phones are best and the reasons behind them would be very helpful :-)


Thanks,
Ace

I think it's a linked AD. By clicking on it, it will bring you to its website and if you buy anything through it, it pays the site which brings the sales

AT&T go phone is your best choice. I bought one for 8 bucks at Walmart and the Sim card is $10 a month. New number, new life..... I've heard a lot of sketchy things about the track phone. Just my opinion

Tracfones and AT&T Phones for USA buyers are the best

Can ebay or paypal see the name attached to the phone when you call in?
What name do you put the phone in?

I checked with AT&T, it appears the cheapest go phone has a $30 monthly
fee for unlimited talk and text.

If you don't want unlimited talk and text, you can purchase an ATT phone anywhere
or use an old AT&T phone that you have at home and have a go phone account
for $2 per day to talk.
I'm not sure how that works, how much you have to use the phone per month
in order to keep the number active. I am going there in a bit to activate an older
phone of mine so I will find out.
