I would like to use Google AppEngine, but it appears to require a cellphone to receive SMS for verification.
Is there any way around this, or any other option I can take?
Can I create an App Engine application without an SMS verification code? Or without a mobile phone?
For now, you'll need a special code to create your first Google App Engine application. Currently, we're only sending these codes via SMS messages to mobile phones, so you'll need a mobile phone with SMS (or "Text Messages") capabilities (most phones have this) to create an application. You can verify your account by signing into the Administration Console.
