Do I need a cell phone to use the RMAH with the option of PayPal? I currently dont own a cell phone that allows SMS messaging. Before I order a Key Chain Authenticator I want to make sure I am not wasting my money on one, as I do not want Battle.net balance...
Yes, you do need a registered cell phone tied to a regular cell phone texting plan in order to use SMS protect. And yes, SMS protect is required for PayPal. Cheap burner phones from Walmart won't work nor will VOIP services like Google Voice.
The FAQ here covers it https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/battlenet-sms-protect
Any standard cell phone in a supported country with a data plan may be used as a Battle.net SMS Protect device.
Now, that said, the Keychain is only $6.50 with free shipping and is great way to keep your account secure. It also reduces some of those security lockouts that you get when switching PCs or changing IPs. I would consider it for my account even if I was not planning on using the RMAH.
