Sorry I can't help you with this particular problem, but for future reference if you setup an account with Lycos, Yahoo or one of the other sites offering web email accounts you won't have this problem in the future if you change ISP's because it won't matter you can keep the same email address.

Good luck, I hope you get it sorted.

Since your Ebay account has been suspended ,You would have to contact ebay to resolve the issue,It is my understanding that if your account is suspended then ebay rules say that you are not permitted to open another account , I think that is correct and it is very hard sometimes to resolve the issue it took me nearly 6 months to resolve my account suspension and was never told why it was suspended, even after I sent copies of ID to prove I was whom I claim to be, .I would imagine they ask for a credit card details to verify other information you would enter eg. check correct address and such in order to try and prevent dodgy people from setting up accounts.It is very hard to find a contact number .I will post the number but at the moment having major problems with internet connection

Yes you do have to enter your Debit/Credit card details to register with Ebay.

But they will never make any charges against it.
It is for Identification only.

I can't see any reason why you should not be able to register again. Try contacting Customer Support at: click here

I don`t want to put my credit card details on file it says If you don't want to place your card on file, you can enter a different email instead (only certain types of emails can be used, such as those issued by companies, schools, and paid Internet Service providers).

I have many alternitive email addresses al lagit but it will not eccept any even my isp tiscali

You must have entered a credit card before in order to register before so I don't really understand what the problem is. Ebay need it so that they can get paid for any listings you may make when you sell something. The only thing I would say is if you ever get an email asking you to reenter your credit card details do not do it as its someone trying to get your card details. Once registered Ebay never ask you to disclose your card details again.
