    Hey guys!

    I am still pretty new to this, and I have a question on phone verification and proxy (not sure if silly or not) for Instagram...
    Say if I am to create 5 instagram accounts, planning to use a bot with them and getting 5 proxies (one proxy for each account - EACH DIFFERENT CITY in AMERICA)
    I am currently in Australia - so when the time for phone verification come, do I have to use an American number? or can I just get prepaid numbers in Australia.
    And do I need 5 different numbers (seeing Instagram sees the 5 accounts as being in 5 different cities) or can I just verify all 5 accounts using 1 number?

    And also one quick question on proxies;
    If 1 account on 1 proxy is banned, does that proxy becomes useless?

    Thanks a lot for your time reading this, really appreciate it!

    No they ban proxys if many attempts come from the same IP. If only one acc, they will ban only your insta acc.

    The phone verification issue is a problem for me as well. Were to get phone numbers for diiff acounts. I purchased phone verified accounts but they, eventually, get to the point where they have to be verified again. Cna't use the account until verfied again.

    Tried various free apps to rec texts to a phone number but Instagram recognizes they are not real cell numbers so that doesn't work.


    I too wonder how many accounts can go on one phone number. Do temp sim cards work? Anyone know?
