Hi I have a U.K. PayPal account which was set up over 10 years ago. It has a phone number attached to it I no longer use. I know my email is tied to the account as I use that to login. However when I try to recover my password it forces me to a text option. No option for the email. Can anyone help.

Seems ludicrous this should be the case. I am wondering whether I should tweet them on twitter to highlight this flaw

You are posting with a U.S paypal account so which country are you in as you can't have or use a UK paypal account in the U.S or vice versa.

Hi, thanks for the reply, I’m not sure where you see I have a US account unless that’s my community account, either way It’s a UK account. Is your question relevant to my phone problem?
