I can't verify my phone number

We may occasionally ask you to verify your account with a phone number. This is done to curtail spam and to ensure spammers and violators can't create multiple accounts and abuse the system.

We only allow real cellular number and landlines to be used for phone verifications. This is because other types of numbers such as VOIPs (virtual numbers) and pre-paid numbers are very easy to create and fabricate. This feature keeps scammers out while letting only real users in.

- Please allow up to 5 minutes for the code to arrive.
- If the code still doesn't arrive, please re-enter your number and try again.
- You will only be allowed so many attempts before the system locks you out.

If you have a real cellular number but are still getting an error message when trying to verify, you can contact us.
