Due to the general shittiness of MtGox I would like to try other exchanges.  BitStamp looks nice, but I won't use a service I can't have 2-factor authentication on.  Right now, setting it up doesn't seem to be working.

I've installed Google Authenitcator and scanned the code from BitStamp's site.   I see an authentication number for <myaccountnumber>@Bitstamp in Authenitcator.  I try to use this as the "verification code" under Account > Settings > Two-Factor Authentication on BitStamp, but it doesn't work.

I've emailed them about this and they haven't responded.

At last I found the error: WE were the DAU:

Smartphone needs to have a CORRECT clock! That means you have to enable "Time Sychronization" in Android! And it works Smiley

Quick note: In addition the right clock you also need the right timezone - careful when travelling.

I broke my phone recently and lost access to Google Auth. I had my auth key setup but how can I setup a new Google Auth without a phone?
