Getting really irritated trying to get a PSN ID

#1AlbinosquidPosted 12/15/2013 1:46:04 PM
After finally getting through the process of getting my actual account, which took for freaking ever because it refused to take my Canadian email address for some stupid reason and had to use my American school email instead (grrr), I'm trying to put funds on my card with my Visa.

But every time I put in the information, it tells me that its not Valid. Freaking bull. I used this card all the time on the 3DS eshop. I'm trying to get a hold of Sony to get help/vent at them but every time I try to call 800-345-SONY I get some dating hotline. Whhhhat?


Has anyone else had these problems before?

I've never had any issues with that. Are you sure you're typing all the information in correctly? I've mistyped my debit card number many times online.

I'm positive I typed in everything correctly. I did it over 3 times just to make sure.

Use Paypal instead, if you must. Sony has stupid invisible rules regarding CC.

I got someone on the help line and he just told me to go to the Sony entertainment network site and enter my CC info there.

Here goes nothing.

Use a Gmail account when making a PSN ID, you can use it for any region PSN.

Do other email services limit the region possibilities for an account?

What are you trying to set it up on? The Vita? Try setting it up on another device, like a PS3 or a PC and see if it accepts it there.

I tried on the Vita and PC, no dice on either one. If I have to type this string of numbers one more time i'm going to kill something!
