When I try to enter my recovery phone number it says to enter a valid mobile number. I am entering a valid phone number.

There needs to be an E-Mail support address, there's just a knowledge base which does not cover all issues. Please add E-Mail support, this is 2014, we're not living in caves anymore.

        So am I supposed to go get a mobile phone just to get rid of the annoying window asking for my mobile phone number? Why can't land-line phone numbers be used? Not that I would give it to them anyways.

        I have the same problem. When I enter my Austrian phone. no. , I get the message "please enter a valid phone no" . It is valid and it works for other services.
