Adding a foreign mobile numer

My banks and cards are American, but I'm currently in Southeast Asia. Every time I log in I have to verify my account and come up with a NEW password (I'm running out of passwords I'll remember) I figured I'd update my mobile number, but it won't let me change the country code. Most websites acknowledge that people around the world are using their services. Can I use a foreign mobile? should I just switch to Transferwise?

Paypal is country specific so if you move countries you have to open another paypal account in the country you reside in and add an address / phone number / and bank accounts from within that country.

You are supposed to withdraw any funds / resolve issues / remove cards and bank accounts before you leave your old country. If you don't then you may have problems doing so once you have moved.

The only exception is U.S expats can add their bank accounts to other countries paypal accounts (paypal is a U.S company so they allow their citizens to do this).

Kudos / Solution appreciated.
I do not work for Paypal.
