if you go to trademe and click on register you have to type in your home phone number. it is compulsary. if you don't have a home phone you can't signup to trademe. have a look yourself.

how are new people who may get naked dsl over the next few months ment to signup because naked dsl means no home phone line. trademe needs to make a home phone number non compulsary.

u can't make something up because i think trademe calls to verify the number. and you can't use a mobile number. it has area codes like 09 etc that you must choose so you can't use 021 etc.

Whatever the case, Trade me are a business that provides a service to people depending on you meeting certain criteria.  If you don't meet them (say you don't have a landline number) then they're perfectly within their rights to deny you an account.  Get a landline if you want to use Trade me, or get over it.
