As the title explains clearly, I bought a server in Netherlands. This is because it's much faster internet speed, unlimited traffic, etc.

Anyhow, they require that I put in my mobile phone number, 06 / **** ****
After the 06, it's 8 digits.

WELL, I don't have a New Zealand / Netherlands mobile phone, so it's difficult for me to actually verify this..

So, is their a service that I can purchase, I get my own virtual phone number, area code 06, then 8 digits after, and they use that, and I will receive the code?

Help me out!

I'll even pay someone on PayPal if they have a mobile phone number, area code 06, and they can give me the code!

The company sends you a code.. You give it to me, I give it to them, and then everyone is happy.

It's so they know I'm not a computer or a bot, and I'm a real human being.

Let me know on what I should do!

Sorry can you please explain how Vodafone NZ can help??

This does not look related or have I read it incorrect?

06 is a landline area code in NZ (Hawkes Bay/Taranaki/Manawatu/Wairarapa), followed by *seven* digits. Cellphones in NZ don't use this number range.

Yeah, sorry about that..

Someone else posted in here about a virtual phone number for SMS - so I thought it was related.

I have no idea what it is.

The site, says Mobile Phone - 06 / 8 digits after.

You clearly need a Dutch cellphone number, not sure why you think you would need a NZ one? They use 06 + (8 digits) as their mobile number range.

Okay, so a dutch cell phone probably has 7, as NZ has 8 digits..

Is their a service, to buy a virtual 'dutch' cell phone number, that will allow SMS?
