You Can't Use Prepaid Phones for Craigslist Accounts!?

by 28 comments
I've read somewhere that CL doesn't allow the prepaid phones as a source of verification. Can anyone vouch for this? I know you can't use alternatives like voip but I was thinking of buying a few prepaid phones just to use with CL.

    I don't know but it wouldn't surprise me. You used to be able to verify with skype numbers. Let me know if you figure something out! :]

    I don't see why not. I can understand with skype and all that, but with a pre-paid phone? That doesn't seem right. A lot of people actually use pre-paid phones as their main phones from time to time. But CL wouldn't surprise me either if they did this.

    VOIP's do NOT work. Prepaid phones DO work but it depends on the service provider. For example, even sprint family plan phones do not work. While, on the other hand, pay phones work that accept calls!

    I find no reason for not allowing prepaid phones. They are most used ones I guess

    Why not forward voip to your cell?

    True. I might just use Twillio, too. I don't know why I didn't think about that lol.

    I used to use prepaid phones from AT&T and they worked fine. I'm not sure if that is the case any more.

    Find a pay phone nearby that allows incoming calls... verify that way LOL. Wait.... do pay phones still exist?

    Hopefully this info is still valid. I was setting an account up on New Years Day with my skype phone # and got blocked...didn't get back to it and here we are at the weekend again.

    I have a pre-paid phone and had no problem verifying my account.
    I had a contract and was paying $200/month for my wife and I.
    Now I have StraighTalk from WalMart. It was the only prepaid service that had the best coverage at the time I was looking for the best price.
    Now I pay $90/month for unlimited everything.

    I've always used prepaid phones and never had a problem.

    I used Skype Online Number to verify the craigslist account but craigslist is not verifying that number and asking for another number. Any other way to verify the Craigslist account?

    I just used a pre-paid today to verify a CL account. They still work... probably not all of them. It is something CL says just to scare the noobs and to be able to hold people accountable in regards to their TOS.

    Are there any online options to verifying phone with craigslist?

    I wonder if Google Voice would work.

    I use a pre-paid cell phone with service provided by Cricket and it works fine for me to verify and place ads on Craigslist.

    All the best,
