Let us start with buying a virtual number. It is very easy to get it; the whole process takes no more than 5 minutes. Let’s use the service sms-man.com. SMS confirmation there will cost only about 17 roubles. You can find detailed instructions in the section ‘How To‘. Besides, this source offers registration on Telegram, WhatsApp, Viber.
How to sign up Kakao without phone number (a step-by-step manual):
- After you get a virtual number at your disposal, download the messenger from AppStore or Google.
- Go to the app and click on the button “Sign up”.
- Accept all the conditions: to do this, put a checkmark everywhere and click “Agree and continue”.
- It’s time to enter your phone number. Use a virtual one instead of it. You can copy it from your personal profile at sms-man.com and paste it into the app. Click “OK”.
- Then, an SMS with an activation code will be sent to you. To see it, again, go back to your personal account at sms-man.com and click on the button “Receive SMS”.
- The activation code will appear in the column “SMS”. Copy it and paste into the app.
- Create a password and fill in your date of birth and gender (optionally).
- At this stage, there are certain minor differences between operating systems:
- If you have an iOS device, the app will immediately offer you to link your email. Enter it and click on the button “Send confirmation to email”. You’ll receive a letter with a code.
- If you sign up with the help of an Android gadget, the system will not offer you to link your email immediately. You will need to complete this procedure yourself. To do this, go to the settings (the icon with three dots) and select “Account” – “Create a new account”. Enter your email and confirm it with the code that will be sent to the mailbox indicated.
