I have a TMobile Home Internet account, but am not a T-Mobile customer.  T-Mobile has assigned a “phone number” to my account, but it’s not tied to a phone.  T-Mobile considers me a customer, and I am eligible to take advantage of offers like those on the “T-Mobile Tuesdays” app.  BUT…. to activate the offers you have to enter your phone number AND then receive a text with a security PIN.  Since I don’t have a device, I can’t get the text with the PIN, so I can never activate the offers.  My router does not get the PIN either.  Any one have any suggestions?  I have explored if I can receive the texts online, but without a phone I cannot.  Suggestions welcome!

If you have the 5G gateway, it is capable of displaying text messages by swiping the top LCD display.  No phone needed.

This used to work for me until T-mobile pushed a new firmware. Now I am pissed its no longer receiving SMS.
