Why can your phone number only be used for one account at a time?

    Allowing a phone number to be used on multiple accounts defeats the whole purpose of "phone verification" - which is there to prevent spam accounts, as phone numbers are unique and can't be obtained easily for mass spam operations where lots of Discord accounts are involved.

    If you really need to, just use a friend's phone number to verify - or a work one at wherever you work as a "community manager".


    you do make a valid point, but as you stated, in some countries it is difficult to get a new number, which makes a good reason to have the same number for verifying a second account. But having the same number on say 5 accounts is stretching it. Anything more, and it should not be possible to do that, as it would be an obvious bot network then
