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 **** 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.
