How does phone verification work?

You will be prompted to enter your phone number. After entering it, you should receive an automated phone call or text message (SMS) containing a verification code. Enter this code on the next page of the process.

What if I type my phone number incorrectly?

Wait 5 minutes, then click "try again."  Please note:

Disallowed numbers for phone verification:

Error message says phone number is "already in use"?

The number you are trying to use for verification is already associated with another craigslist account. Account holders may unlink phone numbers from existing accounts in good standing 90 days after verification.
