So after looking around for free sms receiving websites for the last hour trying to verify an account, I have decided they are unreliable and headache-inducing. The outlook account was just locked for a day for too many messages sent to these free numbers :\. I had a guy that I would use to verify my accounts before but he lives in India and the time difference is killer. I'm just looking for a reliable website/software that I can get a phone number for a while to verify sites like Facebook, Google and Hotmail. CL would be a massive bonus as well. Cheap is preferred but I don't mind paying for something that works. I don't want to have to wait for my contact to come online every time I want to phone verify something. I also want to make sure that the service provides numbers that actually work for the websites I mentioned. Does anyone have experience with receive-sms (dot) com? They look really promising but I tried their free numbers with no luck. I'm thinking of "splurging" for a $3 phone number to test it out. To my knowledge, the numbers from Pinger and other similar sites are blocked by the popular websites that require phone verification. Thanks in advance!!!
