    I used to be able to verify 10 gmail accounts with 1 phone number. 5 with text and 5 with voice. Now I can only do 4. 2 with text and 2 with voice. Did something change or is it something that I am doing wrong? Thanks!

    Maybe your area code or some other footprint got flagged? I had about 10 verified on a single phone a couple weeks ago, no problems.

    Yes, A couple of weeks ago I could do the same. I think something has changed.

    Yeah I believe they've changed their security policies. You can always start the creation of an email and then when you get to the verification part, create an account at TextNow or some similar free VoIP service. Creating an account at TN just add a username and the email you're in the middle of creating, choose an area code and BAM, you've got a number to use :)

    Has anyone used free voicemail services to get past these kinds of a verification?

    They updated their system. I used to be able to use numbers from the "text me" app for PV. That has since been patched

    Yup, none of the textme type/VOIP apps work. And, like I said I can only verify 4 accounts now (2 text/2voice), where as before I could verify 10 (5 text/5 voice). I do this with "burner" phones, so the cost per account has gone up quite exponentially!
