Ok

 

 

 

There is something called Discord that is a sort of chat thing?, anyway i have signed up for it, verified my email, but when i try to login it wants me to verify my mobile number, no matter what I do, I cannot get the verification text to come to me, so i can get no further.

 

What i have done so far is 

 

 make sure NZ is selected for the country code

 

Put in my mobile number without the leading nought

 

Then the "enter the code you have received" box pops up

 

No txt came through

 

waited an hour or so

 

tried again with leaving the leading nought on

 

Then the "enter the code you have received" box pops up

 

No txt came through

 

When i read their FAQs it mentions it doesn't accept burner/prepaid numbers, which mine is (Vodafone prepay), but that seems odd as pretty much every other website has worked fine a far as i can remember.

 

And both my wife and son use Discord and they are on prepay

 

 

 

before i email their support is there something patently obvious that i am missing

 

 

 

Thanks

i gave up on Discord for exactly this reason , everytime i logged on it asked for verification by mobile which i could never do. I couldnt figure it out either





Common sense is not as common as you think.

Verify to login is a pain, you can try to wait on support to get back to you for logging in

Verify to be able to use a server can depend on the server’s verification level, it’s a setting the owner/admin will have set and a workaround is to have a role in the server assigned to yourself.

Well just got an update from Discord, and apparently the txts are being sent, just not receiving my end

 

 

 

Have any Vodafone users had this issue, also when inputting your number do you put the zero in or not (as in 021 or 21) I have tried both ways obviously

there's actually a drop down selector box with the country codes in it next to the ph number bit so its not needed, but I may try it

so have you logged a call with Vodafone to ask why you not getting the text? that would be my next step

Ok, just gave it a last go today, and the txt came through within seconds, I don't know why it didn't work in the past.

 

All i did today was select the country code and enter mobile number with the leading zero on it, (which i had tried in the past), must have been gremlins in the system

It's an issue I have found with some mobile providers in NZ, just be cautious as it can happen again.

So I haven’t given Discord my number, but have found that 2factor on authy seems to work for validation and I can now chat in a bunch of channels which we previously locked.

Might be better for those who’d rather not hand out they phone number.
