My sister accidentally ran over her old iPhone a while back and while she just went out and bought a new, I'm a cheap bastard, so I phoned Apple and all kinds of stuff to get the smashed iPhone replaced. It came today, so after transferring all my stuff to it (from an older iPhone), I wanted to remove the security key (authenticator) from my account so I could enable it on my new phone. Except... I couldn't.
Well, that's not entirely true. I can, of course, remove the security key, but it requires a phone call to BioWare, which means they might as well have told me that it can't be removed. I'm on a cell phone where international calls aren't allowed (they close my account if I make any) and the nearest free landline is at my parents' place, which I just came back from and won't be visiting for another month or so. Basically, I'm sh*t out of luck. Can't call them, but I have to call them.
That has got to be the most downright retarded thing in the history of security measures. Why on earth can't I just use a security key code to remove my security key? Blizzard managed to do this. Trion managed to do this. BioWare, for some godforsaken reason, went full retard on this one.
Makes me want to punch some developers in the face. Less money spent on cel-shading, more money spent on making sh*t not retarded, kthx.
