The only problem with the authenticators, is when they stop working. Mine worked fine one evening, the next day it was completely dead. Almost exactly a year old so battery was not an issue (and there was no indication with fading numbers or anything to indicate it might be getting low).After sending a letter signed by the King, as well as multiple blood samples, to Blizzard, they conceded I was the owner of the account and removed the authenticator (slight exaggeration, but much more thorough verification and that really would have been the case).I'm now running without authenticator. Buying a new one would cost me three times the authenticator price in shipping. While still not a whole lot of money, it just doesn't feel right.Oh, yes, golden rule if your authenticator breaks: CALL THEM. You really don't want to wait for email response. I sent an email first, then found some forum posts saying it took ages, and called. After 15 minutes wait and another 10 or so minutes on the phone, I was good to go. Another week and a half later, I got a response to the email.
