Ebay

I've not long moved and decided not to have a phone. I work of my mobile phone and broadband dongle. I've just tried to sell something on ebay and they wont let me set up a sellers account unless I have a landline. I wish I had set it up before I moved.
I used to sell on Fleabay but that account stayed with my wife. Now i'm stuck.
Now I need to find a way around this or I've got to get a landline just to set up Fleabay.
Any advice?

you not got another line you could use? What they do is ring the number and send a verification code to it that needs to activate your account so how about someone in your family?

download yourself the tesco internet phone software, they give you a virtual landline number for free. Use that. It works. Trust me :thumbsup:

lol you can either use skype ( think there is a charge per month) or use work number/friend/family

its just an automated service usually,

maybe even someone here although i cant condone it as the rules have been set to stop scammers

in a few countries they have a verify id tool but not here as yet

phone box lol

dont they send you it by post if you havent got a landline? thats what i had to do was about 2 years ago though so not sure if its still the same
