    as above.

    I know my number works as I've tried calling myself using someone else's phone. but the sites mentioned above, it won't accept it. both sites says something that goes like "invalid number".

    Any ideas? Thanks

    When I first started using a mobile I discovered that I needed to enter the full number including country code and a + sign before the number to get text messages to work. If entering the full number doesn't work then maybe your number is blacklisted with eBay and PayPal. I haven't tried registering it with PayPal but the number allocated by Telstra to me when I recently bought a Telstra Easy Call 5 phone previously belonged to someone else who could have done the wrong thing with respect to eBay & PayPal.
