Did anyone managed to create 2 step verification on gmail using XT?
was trying to help my friend create it last night but end up we can't get any sms txt message (code) when we test the phone number. so unable to verify the number.

we had Select country New Zealand n type the number with 027 xxx xxxx / 027-xxx xxxx/ 27-xxx xxxx/ 27xxxxxxx. everything just not works.

I've checked my account that already created the 2 step verification, it was using 021 xxx xxxx. it works n i got my verification code everyday when i log in.

I did it, a few months ago. I just tried logging in with a clean browser and received the SMS for login almost instantly.

we did try all other browser (chrome, ie, firefox). but received nothing.
got the green tick for the number when we type in and then click send code
but didn't received any code after hours so can't verify the phone number.

I just set this up for a test account I have without an issue.. Just put in my phone number 0274... without any spaces or anything and got a SMS from +41798073040 in about 5 seconds.

I've removed my number and e-mail from the image, but it worked fine for me.

Actually the code arrived, two or three hours later, in the middle of the night, when obviously it was of no use anymore.

Can anyone try to fix this again?

It's hasn't been working since 1st August... tried call & email Telecom told them about can't receive the verification code, all I got a reply said might be my email not working, told me to ask google.

since then been using the voice call to get the code to login my email, the number showned as Blocked when I answer the phone. Really hope someone can fix this soon.

I managed to get the verification code from facebook but not gmail, so something is not right...

This is not a Telecom issue, Telecom only deliver the SMS once it's passed to their network via 3rd party SMS hub

Does that mean the SMS stuck somewhere in the 3rd party SMS hub unable to reach to Telecom?

Anyone with XT able to receive the code when login gmail?
