Hey, Everyone, I'm not new to IM (see my previous posts) but am relatively new to FB marketing. I've bought some ads in the past with minimal results and, of course, I have my own personal acct and a few fan pages. Other than that, I'm kinda in the dark. However, I'm now looking into creating an arsenal of FB accounts. I'd need about 400 or 500 of them. With the new FB phone verification process, though, I'm not entirely sure how to go about this. I am aware that I can purchase already active PVAs but that's not really what I'm looking for. I'd rather create the accounts myself and then have them verified as I go through (I have all of the needed tools to create the accounts, gather friends, outsource the busy work, etc. but am missing the SIM cards needed to verify). So, a few questions: 1) I can't seem to find anyone on BHW offering this service. Verification, I mean. I was directed in another forum to a Fivrr user offering the service but he's in India, I believe. Does this matter? Won't listing a an international number on an American account set off red flags for FB? Am I just missing the users on BHW that offer this? If you offer it - let me know and PM me your prices per account. That being said, if you've purchased this service before - what did you pay? How much is too much? For this many accounts, would it just be cheaper to buy a shitload of SIM cards? 2) Would it just be easier for me to buy existing PVAs and then edit them to suit my needs? Would be odd for an account to go through a sudden sex change operation, if need be, though. I wouldn't care about losing "friends" attached to said account but I wonder if I'd be flagged by FB for that. LOL. (I need primarily female accounts with specific interests for this venture; thus my desire to create them from scratch). 3) Finally, and after searching the forum I'm pretty sure that this is a dead end but I thought I might throw it out there just in case - has anyone come up with a way to bypass this new requirement? Are there sites that we can use for temp numbers, to receive texts, etc? And, no, Skype won't work. Google Voice won't either from what I understand. Again, I know that it's probably too early for anyone to have come up with this work around but...it's worth a shot in the dark. Thoughts, friends?
