I can't add my mobile number, because the carrier isn't listed in the device list.

Do you mean getting the "Verified Account" badge on your profile? If you do then you can't - it is closed to the public



With regards to the mobile verification - if your carrier is not available then read this article http://support.twitter.com/articles/41611-which-mobile-carriers-does-twitter-support

It means that you will probably be able to send texts to Twitter but not receive any.

The title needs to say "How can I verify my mobile number" instead, but that doesn't mean the answer has to 100% miss the mark given the explanation in the question body itself. – VxJasonxV Oct 1 '10 at 17:22
