Any specific way to set up/ keep a wallet on my daily with out google or my phone flagging me as a crypto holder? Or am I being paranoid over all of the anti-kyc rhetoric lol.
Little of both. It's up to you how much you want to minimize your digital footprint vs. make the transaction easy.

Also, we don't use textspeak on the forum.

Remember that if your Graphene phone has Samourai on it, you don't want that phone leaving the house. Too much risk. Instead, take a picture of the destination address using your daily driver and let that get scanned at the ATM.
I tried this today, and it did not work. The ATM would not scan the photograph of the Samourai-generated QR code on my outside-the-house device. I stood there in my mask and shades and cap trying to get it to scan for several minutes and started to get self-conscious, haha. Eventually I just gave up and went with the alternative option offered on the ATM screen -- create a paper wallet.

I then brought that home and transferred ("sweep") the BTC from the paper wallet to the Samourai wallet in my DeGoogled/GrapheneOS device. I figured this would not compromise my anonymity so felt ok going forward.

I checked 4 ATMs in my area (southeastern USA) and they all required authentication by sending a verification code to a mobile device via SMS, so I had to get a Tracfone burner at CVS.

Finally got some BTC -- feels good man!

Dang, sorry to hear that happened. Yes, if the ATM can print a paper wallet, and you're OK protecting that wallet for <1 day, and you know how to sweep, it's not that big of a deal.

Great job, especially getting the burner phone. Remember that you can top up your minutes using BTC at bitrefill.com.

I've found Coinflip ATM has one of the lowest fees - 6.99%.

Went to one today and bought some crypto using textverified (instead of using my phone number). Also no KYC if under $900.

Guide I used for textverified is below. The only difference from the guide was the ATM didn't ask for my email address to send the receipt.
