Service access denied texting error

Hey everyone -

So Google is trying to verify my account, but when they send me a text, I see an auto response with "Service access denied". The text is from the number 244444. I don't have content blocking as far as I can tell.

Anyone know what might be causing this?

Thanks!

Josh

You could have a short code block on your voice line.  Sadly, this is not something that you can adjust yourself, you will have to reach out to care to have them check.  You will also want to check your device to make sure you have premium messaging enabled.  On my phone, it's under Settings>Apps and Notifications>Special Access>Premium SMS Access.  This will show a listing of apps that have requested Premium SMS Access- Tap on the app and choose Always Allow.

Hey @jgellock

Did you get a chance to speak with our over the phone folks about this potential block? Are you on a postpaid or prepaid account?

Hi, Chris!

I just got off the phone with them. Apparently, there was a block. It's been removed. Now I have to sit tight and wait for Google to retry.

Hey @curryclan 

Out of curiosity, what kind of plan are you on? Do you have a postpaid or prepaid account with us?

I believe I am having the same problem. I also believe the led to the deletion of my Instagram account as they were unable to verify my identity. I am currently on hold for some time now but about to give up for today...

the verification they send you is sent via short code correct? and you have short code enabled on your account?

It has never been an issue until recently. I know nothing about short code until funding this thread. I tried calling yesterday to correct. It's a bit disturbing losing all my content.
