Not receiving text verifications/website verification codes?


Hi all,

Been having this problem for a while and I feel like I've tried everything on my end-- my phone just won't receive verification codes from a number of websites I have accounts with, and I've checked my content blocking settings (which are off) numerous times. Some texts are received, but many are not. What can I do to fix this? Is there a way I can whitelist certain websites to ensure I receive their communications?

Thanks!

Thanks for that info. Have you already checked our Manage privacy & notifications​ page to make sure these message aren't being blocked? If so, you'll want to Community-2153 and have our Care folks make sure your internal account isn't keeping these messages from coming through.

Ah shucks that's no good, but we wanna help. What kind of phone are you using? Are you traveling internationally, or on the T-Mobile network? Also, have you ever gotten these messages before, or has it never worked?

My family is having the same issue, I have checked my privacy settings and blocked setting and I have everything off and still not recieving messages.

Were they able to fix this issue?

I am having the same issue. I consistently never receive text messages from about half of the accounts I am sent verifications from. Others deliver fine. It’s really frustrating. What causes this?

When I click on that “Manage privacy and notifications” link that tmo_mike_c posted above it just sends me back to this page.

Same problem with almost any SMS verification almost 2 years

we open google voice account and we geting the sms verification to them

This can happen also if short codes are blocked on your account because the phone number the business is sending the verification code from is usually a short code (or shortened phone number). Contact Tmobile and make sure short codes are enabled on your account.

I also do not receive verification  code via sms from FedEx and so many other companies. I'm actually frustrated with this T-mobile number and considering switching to another network. I get scared each time I'm registering for a service and the only option is sms code. For email verification, my Yahoo mail works perfectly fine, never had a single issue with email verification. Why can't T-mobile improve their service. This is very repulsive and disgusting quite frankly.

I’m also having this issue. All of my settings are on unblocked, but I still cannot receive verification codes for most websites, which is very frustrating.

 

I’m using an iPhone 12 and I tried tapping the link provided, I’m sent back to this page.
