As the post says, I need help!  Been trying like crazy to buy some lately but always run into snags--try almost ten hours researching various ways.  Signed up for most major btc exchanges and there's one things (verify ID) or another that makes it difficult to purchase any only to watch the price rise like crazy.  Also, I initially got into BTC so I can give a FAT F U to our slave controllers and free the people of usury interest.  How can people here try to sell you btc charging interest above 5% of mtgox website? Why does one have to ask, why cant they just say 6.5% or higher!  Kind of misleading if you ask me a newbie. If the community makes it harder to purchase btc; it will not catch on and your btc can and will become worthless. There are many sitting in the sidelines now.  This really put a bad taste in my mouth.  Am i being unreasonable?

Try coinbase and/or instawallet. bitinstant

Coinbase (tried over 20X's spread over 8 days) reached its max limit and bitinstant is not clearing funds.  There's a OP started on this.  Also instawallet got hacked?  so did mtgox.

Well - coinbase is your best bet. Be patient, and try during odd hours - I have been able to get some with patience. Otherwise, head over to currency exchange and hook up with reputable members like BCB. You will need to send him money through chase quickpay or something alike first, before he sends you btc, and expect to pay a premium.

You may also try EpIsKing through bank deposit.

There are many ways - you will need to do two things:
1. Look around
2. Build trust and not get scammed - use your judgement

Remember - everyone was a newbie one day. I am also a newcomer in compared to many people. Again, look around, you will find ways to purchase. However, based on my experience, let me reiterate: coinbase is your most fair and best bet.

It was a well reasoned question.

Seeing how you are unable to get registered and approved MtGox (which is like, super easy) I figured something else could be wrong.

I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings.

... but it is not so straightforward to put money in mt.gox - it is very natural to feel the way OP is feeling, and it indeed is hard to purchase your first btc - there is no denying that.

YES, It IS really frustrating!

Today is makes ONE week trying to get bitcoins...

1) My balances now are just from free web faucets. They took several days to arrive to my wallet (so much for the "instant" payments!) and so small that the fees to move them are bigger, (at least when they are recent, I read somewhere).

2) I also posted an advertisement on localbitcoins without luck so far.

3) Right now there are more than 8000 "identities" before mine to be reviewed on mtgox, so I can't use that either yet. This seems that is going to take a month or more, slower than opening up a new company or business in Spain, and THAT is saying something!

4) Yesterday I was about to buy though bitcoin SMS, but when I saw the calculations; ONLY half or less of the fiat money goes to buy BTCs and the rest is keep by someone else... I refused to get ripped off.

If I am also "retarded" may be someone (anyone) "wiser" could enlighten me and tell me what I am doing wrong...

Don't get upset. Try to ignore people who comes into your way and post meaningless statements - it is part of the game. Get over it. Read my post above. I have been in your shoes as well. First thing you would want to do is go register at coinbase, and be patient. Continue your search for btc, but keep on trying at coinbase.

Good luck.

cryptocurrent.com

Email: info at cryptocurrent dot com

It's a shame their site is down at a time like this.

They are legitimate, very safe, but you pay for the added anonymity (5% fee).
That is my preferred choice of purchasing coins, I do it in bulk there ($2000+ transactions).
Go to bank of america, give them cash with crypto's account, e-mail crypto to confirm, boom. Within minutes, BTCBTCBTC .

Another options is bitinstant, but it's kind of lame because you have to go through a 3rd party, and it gets messy with a paper trail. The fee is less, however.
Last time I used bitinstant I had to break up $1500 into three payments of $500, then give my full name and address and explain to the clerk at the money order service what it was for.
Bitinstant took a very short time to transfer as well. Both services are great, but I'm a customer for life with crypto. GREAT service! Bitinstant is slightly more obscure, in my opinion.

*is not a cryptocurrent spokesperson*

Best of luck!

Where are you located, geographically speaking?  I think your only hope is a local face-to-face transaction.

Beware the weak hands!
