I have been to 4 coffee shops around the city and when I try to create a gmail account, it asks for phone veritifcation every single time. The problem is definitely not my computer because I create a new windows user every time so there are no cookie issues. Also the problem is not the username because every time I try a brand new username so my new try doesn't get linked to the previous try. new password, new date of birth, new everything. is gmail asking for phone number no matter what? I just need one gmail account, I am not trying to create 100s. fuuuuuuuuuck.
