Common Problems

  • I don't have a phone, how can I play for free?
  • I cannot play the game for free, it asks me to add a phone number
  • I cannot add my phone number to this account, I already added it to another account

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, Overwatch 2, newly created Call of Duty: Modern Warfare accounts, require that you add a phone number to your account.

In addition to the games mentioned above, some games require a phone number in order to use the in-game features like World of Warcraft Group Finder or unlocking the World of Warcraft 4 extra bag slots (requires both a phone number and Authenticator).

Limiting the number of free accounts that a single person can create helps keep players accountable for their actions and, in turn, reduces toxicity and cheating and ensures a positive community experience for all players.

If you already registered your phone number to play for free —or you own a paid copy of the game— this error means that you are logging in with the wrong email. Log out, make sure you enter the correct email, and log in again.
