    Just had a block on my Twitter account that I fixed, but I didn't notice any options to use a different phone number, so I was just wondering... If it happens again in the future, and for some reason I don't have the phone number anymore, will I be.. screwed? Or how does that work?

    I know how to change the phone number, but I mean if my account gets suspended. I don't think I'd even be able to login to change it, would I? Atleast I didn't see any options to the last time my account was suspended :(

    You change the number to a working sms card, how we all do it ,if it needs verifying we use that number

    I think it 5 accounts to every sim we just keep adding untill told sim number already used ....

    Social accounts we verify via sms cards from eBay there already active £25 a hundred

    When your account is locked, there's no option to change the number. You either use a working number or remove it after every verification. You can re-verify the account with the same number or a new one, it doesn't matter.

    Sorry, I didn't really understand. So there's no option to change the number on a locked account? But then you say you can re-verify with the same number or a new one? Or do you mean ONLY once the account is unblocked?

    That is correct, there's no option to change the number on a locked account. So you either remove the number after your verified/re-verifed the account or you need to use a number which is accessible by you when you want and doesn't expire or else your acc will stay locked for good.

    I don't have any SIMS, so I'm just worried about losing the account haha I was just wondering one last thing regarding this... WHAT IF... I removed the phone number from the account after verifying? Then.. wouldn't it force them to let me use a new phone number when verifying?

    So even if my account gets blocked/suspended, I'll be fine?

    Because as per our previous discussion, if I leave a phone number on there, that I no longer own, then my account is [email protected]#ED, but I noticed I can remove the phone numbers, so maybe then I would be safe :D because they wouldn't be able to force me to verify a phone number I no longer have... ?

    Yeah :) Because when you are blocked, they force you to verify using the phone number on the account. But I noticed there's an option to remove the phone number from the account. So maybe if I remove it now, they can't force me to verify it later then?

    Ah... no not really that. I mean... I'm using MassPlanner with Twitter, and when you're on a new account, and following a whole bunch of people, they block your account (or suspend I'm not exactly sure of the right term).

    If they do this, the only way to login is by doing a phone verification, but they only let you verify using the phone number on file, and if it does not exist, then they will not let you EVER gain access to the account again (from what I understand).

    But to avoid this, I'm wondering if I can remove the phone number from the account (leaving it with no phone number), so that later if I get blocked/suspended, I will not be locked out of my account forever.

    Lol

    You use a phone number to verify the account, if you remove it and you're asked to verify the account again, you can use the same, removed phone number or a different one. If you don't remove the number and you're getting locked while a phone number is attached to the account, you'll only be able to unlock the account with that phone number, because you can't change the phone number while you're locked.

    So that means ,the thorey of buying a sim to add to the account to verify if needed is true.

    You must have a valid number attached to your account simple....

    What do you mean? Lately you need to phone verify the new accounts, you won't be able to perform too many actions without phone verification. You can use real SIMs or online services too which offer re-verification service or the numbers don't expire.
