I have an account ,at XFinity. Just received an email stating that they an text message and could not reach me. My phone number is a canadian phone number, and the web site of Infinity does not want to take it. I even when to an XFinity store and they told nothong can be done !!!

Now, what do I do to have my phone number accepted ?

To answer your questions:
Yes, the format of a Canadian phone number is exactly the same, as for North America. Format: 10 numbers = (000) 000-0000.
I don't have, and never had a previous account with XFinity or Comcast.
The email said:

Hello, @user_rmjj5e! Thank you for creating a post regarding your online account concerns. I'm sorry to hear of the trouble you've had, and I would love to see what we can do to help! I believe the Canadian phone number format is the same as the American one (10 digits in total), right? Are you receiving an error when attempting to register your mobile number after already being logged in, or only the email saying texts can't reach you? May I have you provide further details around the wording in the email, please? And just to cross something else off our list, have you ever had an account with us previously that this number was tied to? I really appreciate you taking the time to answer these quick questions. It'll hopefully help us narrow down a resolution for you!

@XfinitySara​ Did you read carefully my last email ? All the questions you are asking again have been answered in the previous email. PLEASE this time read carfully as I will repeat them !

1.- Yes the Canadian phone number as been the same format as the USA phone number format since the phone was invented. (000)000-0000)

2.- I never had a previous account with Comcast, XFinity, or any other company related to you that could me link.

3.- When I am log in on my account on your website, it is impossible to put my phone number in, it this refused: invalid or something like that.

4.- No I did not received a text message I did received an email. IF I HAD RECEIVED A TEXT MESSAGE WOULD MEAN THAT MY PHONE NUMBER IS OK AND WORKING FOR YOUR COMPANY. BUT IT IS NOT THE CASE I AM RECEIVING EMAILS  STATING TO UPDATE MY PHONE NUMBER !
