Hi all! I have a question. if this is in the wrong place could a mod move it to an appropriate board? i wasnt sure where i should put it. so, my question is buying PVAs versus SIM cards. what is better? and why do so few people just buy SIM cards? I know this might get some flak because so many PVAs get sold on BHW, but this is something that i have been pondering and i can't quite understand. i have started using SIM cards and I have seen on a few threads (i think one of BassTrackerBoats threads) that a few members use sim cards especially if they are doing manual work and want it to stick. so, joe schmo goes out and buys some facebook pvas for his latest idea. excellent! go make bank! but at some point he will have to re-verify because....well, its the way it is. either he has a service where he can reverify, or the account gets abandoned. now joe schmo is making money and wants to expand, and now he has to buy more pvas for other services. this wouldnt be necessary if he were using SIM cards he could just make the accounts and verify them himself. he also then has the option to reverify all his accounts himself. i get that it is cheap and easy, but SIM cards are also quite cheap though not as fast as you have to wait for shipping. the benefit on using a SIM card is not only can it be a facebook PVA, but also google/youtube accounts, pinterest, instagram, etc etc etc. As long as you keep your information organized you can use that SIM card forever. even if a facebook account is banned, you still have all these other accounts, or at least, the possibility to make them. i guess you could also say is that with a SIM card, you can make full personas. for those saying it is too expensive, ebay is your friend. a quick search of ebay UK i see all sorts of cheap sim cards for less than a pound. there are also things like 4 for 0.99p still in their packaging. a search of ebay germany yields 10 for 15 euro. ebay US 4 for 1$. for those saying they want to avoid giving personal information, i've never had to enter any serious information, if any information at all. the first time i bought sim cards i just went to the local call shop in the ghetto/immigrant district i live and and bought 3 for 10. expensive, yes but it was a test and i handed the man a 10 and got the cards, no ID shown. now i buy online. I've never had to activate the accounts (send in id copies, name/address/etc). for those concerned you can always pick up a burner phone for the phone verification if you dont want to use your own. this whole thing puzzles me. pay for some pvas for one service or spend literally only a few cents more and have the possibility of making 10+ accounts on various social media/mail services/etc or making complete personas. any comments or thoughts on this?
