    I am currently using smspva and dealing with a barrage of pva's within the last few days or so.
    Not sure if this is in part to instagram kinda freaking out recently or if its a proxy problem or something on my end.
    Either way I was hoping to get a few opinions in from people who are on both sides of this as pva service is starting to really add up for me as I scale up accounts.

    I am wondering if it would be better to get sim cards due to the volume of pva I am receiving recently as with those I would not have to pay per text.
    I guess anyone else who is running 100+ child accounts would be the best to hear from as things are getting pricey even though the results have been excellent thus far!

    I have always used real sim cards and get minimal bans / pvas compared to most people i speak to

    That may also be due to my proxy and warm up settings though who knows

    IMO Sim cards are a way better option, you're in control of your own PVs, you don't have to pay each time, high quality unused and non-recycled numbers etc etc

    Guess i'm biased because I provide sim cards for users but really it seems like the smarter option..

    Right now I'm spending around 10 dollars a day on pva with 160 accounts. 15 cents per verification.
    Getting out of hand.

    I'm using pva with real sim cards . The best way to not get banned and on a long term is a better option to save money.

    If you can get simcards without ID verification, always get them. If you have to verify your identity to get sims, I would suggest you to go with online services. It's not worth it to get in a cyber crime watchlist for purchasing multiple sims on same ID. In India, you'll get arrested for sure. Can't speak for other countries but there's a pretty good chance of getting busted.

    I have seen the sim cards for £45
    How much does it cost per verification on pay as you go with EE?

    Did you find accounts getting less pva by having a legit number and using the same one multiple times maybe gives the account more security?

    You need to get to the root of your problem, which is why you're recieving all those verifications as opposed to finding a solution to paying for them. Anyone who tells you that its mandatory that you get phone verifications daily on your accounts is misleading you and just hasn't learned how to run their accounts properly. I'm running upward of 600+ accs, 400 or so of them being spam accounts, and the rest niche accounts and client accounts and I don't get phone verifications daily. The only time i really receive them is when adding an account to a new proxy, and occasionally I'll recieve one in the beginning when I'm warming up the account. But once they've been running for 2 or 3 days, I don't get verifications on them period. Use high quality accounts, along with high quality proxies and take the time to set your settings properly. I took plenty of time doing testing, and its paid off. So my advice would be to work on preventing the verifications in the first place as opposed to giving in and just accepting them. You recieve verifications if you're doing something they seem suspicious. So set things up accordingly.

    Btw, I did the whole real sim cards thing for a period time. Now I just use online verification services, and notice no difference in the two as far as it causing more verifications.

    SIM card is definitely better.

    On PVA sites, those SIMs have been used over and over again thus make it risky for your account if you used it.

    Thanks Klique!
    I am always heeding your advice even when you are helping others!
    I will see what I can do with adjusting.
    The big problem for me has been proxies but it can't hurt to adjust settings as well to see if it can help.

    Never the less I think getting sim cards might be a better route going forward.

    Yes. Indian Anti Terrorism Squad is working constantly to monitor any red flags and buying multiple sims is a red flag for them. Because, why would an average person buy multiple sim cards?
