Default Phone number verification solution - THIS WORKS !

OK, guys, i know the voip issue and it doesnt work
with verification for ebay or paypal.

I have been using UK money phone boxes for verification.
I have over 15 accounts all working with this system

You will need a friend or as i do a USB dongle to go mobile
and possibly a laptop as i do

Sign up if you have to if you desperately want to keep trading!
There are some good deals around for 12 month contracts for
10-15 a month (a small price to pay)

It is a little awkward but it works as follows :

1. Find a call box and note the phone number on it.

2. Have your laptop with you at the call box and
enter the call box number into the sign up part
of the ebay verification system.

3. The call box will ring and give you the 4 digit ver'
number.

4. Now for the clever part. The automated voice asks
you if you are execting the call and randomly asks you
to press an number between 1-9. NOW, if you press
the call box number, say six then you will discover to
your horror that all UK phone boxes are not touch tone
so nothing will happen !

5. The solution is to hold up your mobile phone and put the
speaker directly to the call box ear headset and press the number
that ebay is asking for

6. You will notice on all mobiles that when you press any number
from 1-10 the pitch is slightly different for each number.

7. VOLA ! You will hear the verification number given to you and
away you go.

NOW, I know you will be saying, i dont have a dongle or a laptop
but with a friend in hand you can get them to activate the call
from your PC and use your mobiles to get the call box number to ring.

There are plenty of call boxes out there and they all have their
phone numbers on.

Any questions just reply. I have been using this method for six
months and it works !

Good luck

Excellent Post. Its the same method I have been using for about 3 weeks now, however I think you should take this post down as Ebay will find a way of stopping it once they know. I have only been telling people by PM how to do this to trusted users of the site, maybe you should too?

Also if you have an Iphone or simular, you can do the signup online on the phone, and do the verification with that, not needing to take a big laptop with you

You know guys the funny part about all this lets say ok you set up an account using call box verified bam everything fine 4 months later Suspended you say dam did someone else used that call box # lol maybe worse 3 sellers used the same box you guys must have some type of communication when doing this call box thing maybe post a sticker on the phone ebay paypal already taken dont not use keep it moving bright Yellow or something like disable the phone...Good luck using this call box thing cross your fingers.

You won't get suspended for someone else trying to use the call box
as ebay holds database of phone numbers already used, so if you
try the same box it wont work ! I think we live in a bigger geographical
area than our American counterpart is aware of ! We dont all live in the
same city !!

Disable the phone !! very odd.

THIS WORKS UK EBAYERS ! GOOD LUCK AS STATED ABOVE

Is a "call box" a pay phone??? And is this for the UK & the USA?? Here in the USA, we have many "pay phones" that will not take incomming calls. If someone calls you from one of these, the # shows on the caller ID BUT if you try to call it, the recording says you cannot.

So, it's the pitch that verifies you are expecting the call?

Do keytones have to be on, on your phone?

Yes its the pitch. Each number on your keypad has a different sound, and by pressing the correct one its just confirming with Ebay you are expecting the call and are the person making the account.

Yes you would need the keytones on your phone to be on for it to work

Have someone do it with you then. One person at the phone box the other at the computer.

And dont use an IP from a different town as its not needed anyway

What kind of distance are we talking, that would be accepted between the home address and the phone box?

It certainly works. There are a few UK websites that list all the public
call boxes in your area (UK residents) You may have to travel a few
miles but it's well worth it.

Thanks Mantisinc for your earlier research that you have taken for
your UK method. Excellent stuff !

I thought that Paypal were able to check whether or not a landline number was linked to your address?
