    I suddenly have several sites which I occasionally need to phone verify in order to un-suspend accounts. Accounts are US based, so would need US pva I assume. I have already tried every free US number I could find online where you can check the messages on their site. All failed for every site where I need to receive sms.

    So... I don't mind paying per verification, but need to find a reliable service that can do this. As far as I know, I just need a bunch of short term one-offs.

    Not willing to give my cc info out, so very helpful if there is a service that does paypal. Of course, free is better, but even things I've tried like textfree have all failed.

    Suggestions? Who needs to do this regularly and has found working system?

    Saw this post second time maybe?

    Going free resources in such cases will risk your account.

    AFAIK, there are no such thing now. It was before.

    Why dont you buy bitcoin from your cc and then get pv from verified seller?

    I've got some already created accounts that need verification from time to time. Currently have Microsoft accounts that for various reasons I don't want to just ditch, but every once in a while, one requires PVA for no apparent reason. Happens ocasionally on some other accs as well, so looking for overall solution. I've talked to 3 companies that offer sms services, and they've told me that for "security purposes", their numbers won't work for acc verification for Google, Paypal, Twitter, etc.

    Gotta be a solution somewhere. Already tried all the free stuff I could find, and none of those numbers work. I don't even mind renting the numbers. A dollar or two a month would't be an issue if it can solve the problem for me reliably as I have many accs and just want to stop wasting time on the issue.

    Will look into options mentioned.

    As for geo, USA is absolutely required, and proper area code strongly preferred due to the actual uses of the accounts. Even though it may work to use chinese numbers or whatever for individual accounts, it's important that groups of them do not give off that signature.
