Re: PayPal Account


You don't need a smart phone.  There are many accessible phones that are called feature phones that you can use to text.  I have one.

Although I like the IPhone app for PayPal, I agree that using this method to
verify your identity is unfair to those who do not want to use a smart
phone. And I am finding more and more sites that use this same method.

Certainly do appreciate your thoughts, but:

I've had a paypal account for almost 20 years and always accessed it
just fine using a windows computer and various screen readers. There is
nothing wrong with the access, even now; however, as part of the logon
procedure, they arre forcing me to put in my cell number as a security
measure.  And then theyy (say) they will text me a code that I will need
to access my account.

I will NOT N O T !! put in my cell number!  I DO NOT D O  N O T !!
accept text messages!

There must be a way to dismiss that screen and go on to my account.  The
screen has no skip or cancel choices.  I tried all 0s, and a made-up
number.  The 0s were not accepted and they did try to text my security
code to the made-up number.  I marginally abused they're customer
representative on the phone.  All she offered was to close the account.

PayPal has been good and convenient over the years.  It's a service I
don't want to loose.  I just thought maybe someone else here might have
had the same experience and would have suggestions?

Thank you.
