It says i have to get a conformation code by text, but my parent's phones don't get text messages and they don't want me to have one for some reason.




edit: here are my procedures:

1. Go to minecraft.net
2. Click "buy now"
3. Pick american express(the card i am using)
4. Enter card info
5. The text message page comes up
note: Then I mention a group of people in my posts, i mean the majority of information i have seen from that group, and my statement may not be accurate for every individual in that group.

Why would you buy Minecraft with text messages (mobile phone charges)? This isn't Spiral Knights. It's just stupid.

Where did you try to buy it?
I'm leaving the forum, if anyone cared. You can find me on OC or FFR.

Err, you tried to pay via PayPal, right?

I mean seriously now. Verifying via SMS is awkward. I mean, PayPal verifies their account by sending an amount of money to make sure if it's real, with a code to verify it.

Credit Card, Did you not read my first post?     

Oh, you mean this one, which makes no such mention of where you went or how you tried to pay?

Wait, you intentionally removed pertinent information? For what purpose? Don't being sorry for trying to get help, people were trying to help you. Be sorry for being an ass about it.

So you may have a problem with your credit card.
I suggest you contact your card company or paypal. ;)

I thought I put in the original OP that i was using a credit card, then when I realized I was wrong, I took out that part. And learn grammar, troll.

Ok, I see now that you've ADDED in the OP clear information on what you did. Brings me back to you have a virus on your computer or as mbiraguy above states, it might be an issue with the card.

Good god you're acting like a brat. Your parents are right not to get you a phone. I just hope you don't abuse their credit card too.

You come in here, and call me an ass because of something I included in my post by accident, and removed when i realized it was wrong.


Yeah, I'm a brat.

What is this, Opposite Day? You had scant info in your OP. People tried to help based on that very little info. You chided them for helping and asked if they read your OP, the very same one that had scant info in it. You get called on it, you admit to having REMOVED info, and you continue to act like everyone else is wrong? I quoted you verbatim before your edits, don't act like I'm making it up as I go.

Please, everyone just chill.

Theres a vey low chance that its a virus, and even then its the last thing to consider.

You are also acting very rude and there are various mistakes in your logic. Your constant attempts to appear sophisticated are destroyed by your rude language, and high aggression to a small issue.

EDIT:
That being said, you have a point. OP rudely commented based on information added AFTER my post. This is the only mistake I noticed though, while you failed to clearly understand almost everything after that post.

I am of course referring to this post:

Just put "EDIT:" before edits, and then no misunderstandings will occur.
