Do you have a mobile (not landline) phone issued in your country and registered in just your name verified on your Paypal account?

Have you confirmed it?

I use prepaid accounts that last 6 months. So I have a new phone number. And after wasting so much more of my life again trying to 'contact' someone I got a page that claimed it would send a code to an email address. I resent it over and over and never got a code. Sure, they'd love people to waste their time and money calling them. But this is supposed to be an internet service. Not telephone banking. so WTF is going on. And how do I find a way to log in, and change my phone number. Of course THAT is all about TRACKING and they SELL that information on. That is bad enough. But there is no way to USE paypal, to get into my account, because I don't use the same phone number any more. ABSURD lack of anticipation of this problem. As if designed to FORCE you to be TRACKED using a permanent phone number. Any suggestions?

ABSOLUTELY OF ZERO HELP... AS I SAID ... PAYPAL IS AN INTERNET SERVICE, NOT A TELEPHONE BANKING SERVICE...AND THE ONLY REASON THEY CARE ABOUT MY PHONE NUMBER IS FOR PURPOSES OF SELLING DATA ON TO THIRD PARTIES, INCLUDING OCCUPATION GOVERNMENT SPY AND CO2VID CULT TALIBAN ENFORCERS ... I LIVE IN ESTONIA, AND THERE IS NO WAY I WOULD WASTE A TON OF CASH ON CALLING THE U.S, AND PROBABLY BEING PUT ON HOLD FOREVER...PAYPAL ARE AN INTERNET SERVICE...SO IT IS ABSOLUTELY ABSURD THEY HAVE NO REAL EMAIL CONTACT FOR USERS...IT IS AN APPALLING SITUATION AND I WILL STOP USING PAYPAL THE MOMENT I FIND AN ALTERNATIVE...AND REMIND YOU ALL THAT YOUR PHONE NUMBER IS USED TO TRACK YOU...IT HAS ZERO BENEFIT FOR YOUR ACCOUNT SECURITY....

Well others have sorted their phone issue easily enough using the contact information above.

However if you can't or won't use then that is your issue isn't it.

I can only give you the options available, not the sense on how or if to use them.

You do not phone a U.S number when you use the phone number for Paypal posted on your countries site.

 

Seems you have a problem with communication in general doesn't it. Is that why you choose to post in capital letters??

If you want the link to close your account then feel free to ask for it and I will post it for you.

Meanwhile if anyone wants to track where I go and where I shop with my mobile phone they are quite welcome to do so, it won't be that interesting though.   😊
