    How to verify account


    When you change your account credentials for your MS account, specifically changing the email address.....why is there a 30 day wait period if you only have an email account to use to verify. If you have a mobile phone, you're instantly given a text with the code. Some of us don't have a mobile phone. I under stand the need of a waiting period by why so long.....a week should be sufficient.

    :)
