    Our attempts to find methods to verify facebook by phone have been a fairly popular topic. So far, we've determined that many services such as Tropo, Pinger, Textem, and Google Voice can't successfully overcome this roadblock. The threads almost always result in either failure or a bunch of people trying to sell their services of SIM cards.

    I'm going to propose something new. At one point, Facebook offered the option of verifying an account with a "Call Me" option. I've only ever seen it once, and it was years ago, but I've run into a few others on the board who have reported seeing it recently. My idea is that if we were able to inject that input option back into the page, that Facebook might still process it correctly, since that option is available to some people still.

    But that's where I need your help. No matter what I do (different country IPs, clearing cookies/flash cookies, etc.), I can't get the option to display. If one of you (who knows what I'm talking about) who can see the option can post or PM me the HTML block of the popup form from the DOM when that option is visible, then I'll see if I can figure out a way to modify the page to accept that option. If I'm successful, I'll create a tutorial that is very easy-to-follow for everyone here, so even if they don't understand the lingo, they can beat this roadblock as well.

    Please help me help everyone else, I need this block of code. Thank you in advance.
