I have Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) and so cannot afford a cell phone. I keep up my home-line payments in case 911 emergencies. (The laptop is a gift my son.) When I try to create a new Gmail account, verification codes are sent to my non-existent cell number. Is there some way to verify via my home line? O/S is Windows 10. Laptop is Lenovo Flex 14. Intel Core i5-8250U CPU @ 1.6 GHz 1.8 GHz

  • It is not necessary to use a cell phone number. You need to set up an account without 3 step verification which includes a cell phone number – papakias Feb 11 at 14:12

There is a field labelled "not now" on the page where Google says they will call you. Click on it. When I did, Google let me create an account.

There is google voice. Create an account and google will send you a message when you get a call.
