    A friend of mine was over in the Netherlands last week. She didn't have internet at the place she was staying so I lent her my iPhone to tether to her laptop. When I got home and wanted to play WoW I realised.... my authenticator is on that iPhone.....
    Took me 2 hours to get the authenticator removed from the account. Sent Blizz an EMail, got a response to attach a copy of photoID (and the usual secret question and bio info crap) and within 2 hours I was back playing WoW.

    Beats the crap out of waiting for 2 weeks for Blizz to restore your items and then going back to grinding because Blizzard won't restore your gold........

    Also, that is considering you only use the free phone authenticator. If you're not cheap, you simple get the authenticator and the phone one as backup, or other way around. Makes that argument even more invalid.

    No, you can only bind one at a time.

    The best AV software is available for free to everyone! It's called "a brain" ;)
    (although I use Panda Cloud, it's free as well and a lot easier to find)

    why didn't you just call her, and whilst on the phone to her, log in to battle net and get her to give your auth code over the phone, and then remove authenticator temporarily >_>

    Or does that sound too easy?

    Use Avast myself, not had a virus since I've owned a computer (Advanced System Care is also nice though not an anti-virus)

    He'd have to tell her he plays WoW then!

    AVG, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, Spybot - Search and Destroy (I guess they're not all classified as AVs but hey....)

    Using Avast as well and as for firewalls I always keep the Windows Firewall enabled and have the firewall on my router to block everything except whatever port I decide to open.

    Seeing I just got a new BlackBerry Curve 9300 I went to check out the mobile authenticator but I can't see it in the list. Anyone know if this might work if I select another type of BB?
