EA are idiots making it so that you can only change your security question by answering your security question. It is a completly idiotic system and I hope they change it. EA also makes us sit for hours on hours on hours waiting for customer service to change a security question. I know they are scared of people that will get thier account hacked while one underpayed EA employee gets yelled at for it. But still its just a security question. I dont know about anyone else but when I fill out a security question I expect to hardly ever use it.
