    hi.
    I have a skype phone number and for the longest time I wanted to use my skype # to verify my egay seller account .... the problem i had was that my skype program doesn't produce dial tones...which makes getting a confirmation number hard since the recording asks you to press a number before giving you the confirmation number.

    So, I was able to fake the dial tone!

    I just grabbed my regular cell phone and put it on speaker phone. When the egay recording tells me to press '9', i just hold my phone up to my microphone and press 9. Egay verification system thinks it's the real thing, i get the confirmation code and wallla... egay account verified and ready for action!

    Hopes this helps somebody

    Full marks for thinking outside the box tonlilaz, you can't have too many ebay accounts, is the skype number reusable for this trick?
