    So use your mobile phone. That's what I do. "Home" phone basically just means your primary number you can be reached at.

    Zhuzhuchina... no way. That place is ridiculous, their prices are still pretty high, although they lowered somewhat.

    i had the same problem, i use my paypal about 1 time a month, but this is the first time this crap happened, i don't have a land line so i had them mail it, but i don't think i've gotten anything back. hope it was not a scam.

    Well they sent me a letter with a code on it but it says it can take upto 2 weeks for it to arrive...i hope not.

    But what will happen about my acekard paypal payment now?it says it's on hold,after i validated my address will i have to order from the site again and get a refund?

    Just try and keep up hope that the letter from paypal arrives sooner than later. And if it doesn't arrive in two weeks just make sure you stay on them and email them again explaining your situation.

    i will not be ordering from shoptemp [​IMG] i like the site, but it seems like someone or something tried to access paypal and that is why it was limited.

    i like the prices but not enough to risk getting screwed over if i order something, and obviously something happened...it wasn't just me, probably many other people as well.
