Help with my Capital One issue
The issue in GetHuman3370380's own words
Trying to update my telephone number for my account. ... I attempted to update an inaccurate telephone number on my Capital One credit card. I tried a skype number, a google voice number, and finally, a Ting number which I just purchased specifically to use with capital one as they would not accept my first two numbers. I pay for my skype number, I pay for my Ting number but google voice is free. Now I am searching for a lowcost phone service that Capital one will accept. Are there any prepaid phone services that are accepted or any non-contract phone services that are accepted or does it have to be a contract phone? I cannot find this information anywhere online. Thank you!! To make it right I would like to update my telephone number on my account.
To save money I use google voice for many of my calls and also pay for a skype number for calls. I also ordered a sim card and phone from Ting (Tmobile branch I believe) in order to update my telephone number with capital one. I do not want to pay $**.** a month with At& T or $**.** with Verizion, T-Mobile does have some other prepaid phones with out contracts but I want to know if those are accepted before I purchase another phone service.
They could let me know which telephone numbers from which providers are acceptable and I will choose one of them if mine are not acceptable.
I have good credit, enjoy making purchases and always pay my bills at the end of the month.
As mentioned above I purchased a sim card and phone from Ting and thought this would solve the problem. Now I just need to see if they will accept prepaid phone service from t-mobile or If I need to go through the additional expense of obtaining a contract with AT&T, Sprint or Verzion.
How GetHuman3370380 fixed the problem
I spoke with Jen a Capital one Representative (***-***-****), and she provided a solution today. I was able to use my low-cost phone service from Ting to add to my account. The Ting bill is less than $**.** a month. I was informed that Skype numbers and Google Voice numbers would not be approved due to security concerns. I was not required to purchase an expensive contract phone plan from AT&T, Verison, Sprint or a prepaid plan from T-Mobile. The Capital One representative Jen, was very helpful and corrected my telephone number problem very quickly with a call verification. She stated they would add this information to their web site for future customers. Thank you Get Human !!!
