Frequently asked questions.
You are probably using some custom ICQ client. Before using the number with custom client try to login first into ICQ site, change profiles, attach email, etc.
You are probably using Firefox or Internet Explorer. Try to use Google Chrome instead.
You will be able use your number ONLY after completing following steps:
One phone number should
be veryfied only with one ICQ number.
If you verify phone number
with second ICQ number,
then first ICQ number gets blocked
and all its contacts are moved
to second ICQ number!
Invisible number is number that you can not find in ICQ search. It exists in the system, and you will be able to login once you get password, but you will not be able to use the number without activating it by verifying your cell phone number.
Invisible numbers became invisible because lack of use. For example, when person, who registered it, made only 1-2 logings and then left the number forever.
Almost all numbers from my collection are invisible numbers. So, they have no previous owners. All of them were registered some day (1998-2000) and forgotten.
Any number that is not invisible (can be found in ICQ search) had previous owner(s).
Be aware of that.
