I was creating a new Gmail account to manage my day job's Google Places and I was asked to verify the account by phone. This is the first time I've had to give Google a phone number before I could access my inbox. I wanted to double check this and created another account while on one of my proxies. Once again I was asked to verify the account by phone before I could access the inbox. This is new to me. Has anyone else run into this? From what I can remember you could create up to 5 accounts a day off of 1 IP without having to PVA.
