Not receiving verification codes

Hi,

I'm a new Xfinity Mobile customer and since the move, I am no longer receiving many of my verification codes (text messages), even the verification code text messages from Xfinity.

XM may have to reprovision your line and this may require that they suspend then resume your line or something similar. This will most likely require level/tier 2 support.

Before calling the 888 number try a few things if you haven’t already done so:

1.) Power off phone, remove SIM, insert SIM, power on, reset network settings, reconnect to WiFi, power off and on, and then send yourself an SMS from your email by emailing [Edited: "Personal Information"], or have someone else send you an SMS to see if you can receive an SMS. Also send someone else an SMS to verify that sending works. 

2.) If not successful you will need to call the 888 number and explain to customer support that you are not receiving SMS and need to have level/tier 2 support suspend and resume your line, and don’t let them offer you a new SIM. Once they agree to connect you to level/tier 2 they will forward your call, and you might have to get into a call-back queue. 

I just did this last week and was successful after updating to a new iPhone and losing the ability to receive SMS, but it took a little time, and it would be useful to have another phone line available during this process. 

Good Luck!

Thank you for letting us know. I can understand the concerns when you have set up two-factor authentication, and not getting the alerts. I can help! We are limited on what we can do with Xfinity Mobile accounts, and devices over this platform, however I would make sure you have updated your contact info, on the places you are not receiving the alerts from, and maybe reentering your preferences on those sites. For specific Xfinity Mobile Support please call or text 1 (888) 936-4968, or reach out to our secure online chat. Thank you!

Thank you for commenting on the post. Just to make sure I am undersatnding, you are not able to receive a verification code to your phone number since changing to Xfinity Mobile? Did your phone number change?

I too am no longer receiving text verification messages since making the switch to Xfinity Mobile.  All other messages are fine.   Android + Google Messages user.  I'll call in tomorrow about it.  If anyone knows of any particular setting that may be enforcing this block,  it would be helpful.  I'll try giving the SIM card the ol' in n out, then defer to support to resolve.

I switched from Verizon to Xfinity Mobile and immediately lost all ability to receive one time codes, one day goes by, and I am able to receive most one time codes, but not all of them.

My bank actually instructed me to reach out to Xfinity Mobile about this issue. This would definitely be a deal breaker for me if this cant be fixed since its of key importance for accessing my personal / work accounts.

@user_b16a0d​ 

this is also happening to me and I’m locked out of work accounts which greatly impact my future ability to pay for any services. It’s ridiculous lol. I have been going in circles with phone and chat reps for days and nothing is resolved. This is a contract service so I’m so lost on what to do if they don’t fix it. I need to work to pay my phone bill
