GetHuman-ywtfwtfy's next move: try the Google help center again.
Google doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-ywtfwtfy will want to follow the link below to head to their help center. We will check on GetHuman-ywtfwtfy later to make sure it's all set or try to help escalate.
Before contacting them, items GetHuman-ywtfwtfy may need:
Phone Number on Account, Account Number, Name of Account Holder, Date of Birth, and Email on Account
The issue in GetHuman-ywtfwtfy's own words
I know my credentials, but Google insists on verifying the account using a phone number, and I don't have a phone. I tried the button for try something else and it asked for BOTH the month AND day that I opened the account, which was quite some time ago and I haven't the slightest clue. I've had over a dozen email accounts and can't tell you even the year I signed up for ANY of them, let alone the month and day. And that's it for choices. I normally use Mail.app so I don't sign in to google directly very often, and now it looks like I never will. I can't provide you with an email contact, obviously, unless I simply open another account, which is completely contrary to the point. But I see I cant send this w*o an address so I guess this was all useless as I will never receive your reply. Thanks for absolutely ZERO support.
