Default paypal voip number

jim,
yes l did thanks and tried it with other numbers and got ther same reply tom all

This telephone number is most likely a United Kingdom number. Specific information on this number range is not available. This might mean that this particular telephone number does not exist. Should this be incorrect, be sure to notify us.

Cell phones have different ranges than landlines. VoiP and other numbers not from the local landline phone co are like this. I think it means that the number is not landline.

Hi, had PP acount limited until confirmed address with the phone number, so added works phone number and after entering code it said that after checking available databases that the phone number did not match address.
So they are now sending a letter to ⊗⊗⊗⊗ address, does this now mean that you can not use a false address to confirm your PP account as they now check your phone number against the address?

yeff you could rent a mailbox that looks like it's not a PO Box. I don't know what's in the UK.

Or CCNOW will work if they can mail you checks.

yeff

Was your work number a DDI or extension number or was it the main telephone number for the company?

The thing with paypal they have a few databases to refer to and one in particular will prove whether your number is registered or not. I won't go in to detail as a few things are being worked on by myself and don't want ****pal to suss them out, thats if they haven't already.

PM me or let me know if the number you used was a main co number or DDI (direct dial, as used in offices)

Jonas, The mailbox scenario will not work, unless my new theory works then it should, as you will need a telephone number registered to it.

Paypal can see if your landline belongs to your ACTUAL ADDRESS. Its not a regional thing, or a postcode thing but a street thing.

I have used numbers less than 300 yards from the address on paypal but they still know it doesnt match up. I have used work numbers in the same post code and they know its not the same address, and I have used VOIP many times before, but now they know its not the same address.

Its nothing to do with the extension (0208 for Inner London for example) they numbers are listed to specific addresses.

Just find somewhere you have access to their phone, work for example, and put their real address in and accept the phone call when you are at work

I agree with you. Paypal consults a known business database to verify the match of telephone numbers against addresses.

But DDI numbers will not work it has to be the main telephone number, although DDI numbers are a valid number that a person dials to get straight through to you they are not registered on the database and certainly are not an extension like where you speak to an operator and ask to be transferred to x number.

Is paypal matching them based on the phone company's internal private records? Or are they just seeing published numbers and if your number is unpublished them they wouldn't see it?

Their own internal records wouldn't have every live phone number as they have got that many customers.

They are using a database that has been licensed from an external company that does have every landline telephone number whether ex-directory or not. It is regularly updated as new numbers arrive or disconnect, but certain tel numbers like voip & mobile will not appear on it, well not in the way landlines do.

Its telecom thing, I won't shout in public about

Lucy, this has already been discussed I believe. There has been a way around, but you'll have to PM someone for the solution I believe.

i dont know you have heard about voicemailtel.com. I find it pretty useful for verifing my phone numbers they supply telephone numbers to countrys from all over the world basically you route the number to any phone and it works. I routed a local toronto number to my cell phone and it verified. Hope this works. They had a one month free special, im not sure if that ended as yet. Good luck.

Default UK paypal phone verification

Can someone please tell me how I can verify my paypal account without a landline number, as it seems paypal have cottoned onto voip numbers and I really don't want to mess this account up as I have completed all the other steps, someone please PM me, if the info is too sensitive for a public forum.
