    I used to be able to for years to register a gmail/youtube account without having to do phone verification. I noticed yesterday and today this no longer works in my area here in the US. I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed this change?

    While we are at it if you know of any services like K7 which actually work please let me know. My methods these days does not yield more than a few bucks per account so buying PVA is pretty much out of the question with these methods.

    If your IP is dynamic, simply reset your router. If not, you can use proxy/socks. That's all.

    Hello, thanks for your reply. No, that is what I have been doing since late 2013. I've been resetting the router, the MAC, clearing cookies and all browser settings including LSOs (flash cookies). It was working fine up until about 3 or 4 days ago. Now after trying about 7 different IPs they all require phone verification. It's not just a case of running out of IPs either as there are thousands and thousands in this IP pool. It seems they changed something.

    I have like 500 aged accounts though (probably ~200 are still good) so I guess I can always carefully add additional videos over those as the videos are 90% whitehat but it still sucks. I was wondering if others in the US saw a recent change or if it is maybe just in my area. I wish there were another ISP who provides resettable dynamic IP addresses but unfortunately I am stuck. :(

    BTW I will paypal at least (maybe more like $50 if I really like it) $20 USD to anyone who can PM a method to get verify my US accounts which satisfies the following:

    - Does not cost me anything additional (such as extra SIMs or paying a provider)
    - Can phone verify a gmail/youtube account in less than 30 minutes or so (ie. doesn't take a day to do + a lot of hassle)
    - Works at least 75% of the time.

    For example something like a K7 service which actually works. I'll keep it a secret and I won't kill your method as on average I make about one or two accounts per day and I am not doing blackhat videos which scam anyone. I have literally 10,000+ IP addresses to use to use so getting around IP restrictions or having to register emails is no problem. Feel free to post it here too and I will pay (for the first one which works) as long as it works....it's just that if you do that it might not last as long. :)

    you should google how to get an online phone number man, there are many services that provide phone number for free, you can receive call or sms verification and most services are free on trial period so that costs $0. Just take time to do some search man because people won't share their secret. They are making accounts and sell them so nobody will sell it to you to get $20. Lolz. Sad but true that you have to figure it out yourself. And it's not hard I think, I spend only 15 minutes to search, get the list of services, and 30 minutes to try them. Don't be lazy!

    Thanks then. I guess I will look harder. I just figured most of them would be blocked or premium so I didn't bother to search much.
