Naturally it will depend.  at the moment paypal is having trouble with lots 
of browsers, not that this should matter.
I have seen other varification methods, question for example, math problems. 
The  cell phone is a risk, many people may not have one, or you run into 
access where text messages are concerned.
The question will be what paypal is willing to do towards a solution.

I recall reading both of these, but never had the need to use them or investigate in more depth. So someone more knowledgeable then I might be able to comment.
