Is there a way around Facebook’s “unique phone number” verification

Got this email from someone on our team:

Ok.. So even though we have the fan base now, I still need a stinkin phone number so Facebook can verify I am a human and then I can set the various url’s for both the account and the page.

Any clever ideas of who has an unused number? I already used everyone including _____’s… so.. yeah.. I’m at a loss here.. any suggestions?

Facebook seems to insist on having a unique phone number attached to every page. Or at least it seems that way.

Problem is, we’ve used all the phone numbers we have!

Does anyone know a way around this?

  1. why not get a Google voice number, which you can forward to your phone. Then, once verified, you can un-forward if you don’t want to be bothered..

    You may need to do this with a US #, I’m not sure…

  2. I hadn’t thought of that, but great idea, thanks!
