I ported my phone back to Vodafone yesterday, and can no longer receive Google Verification messages. I can still receive ones from my bank. Is this something that will just start working again over time (SMS equivalent of Domain TTL?), or do I need to get someone like JohnR to hit it with a big spanner.

PS: Also holy jeebus I cannot believe that mobile and landline billing services are totally separate in this day and age .. One of the things I was looking forward to was having everything on one account, instead had to dance through a full application, credit checks, and a separate bill.. /facepalm

I have the same problem. I just use the Google Authenticator app.

Thanks John, They actually started coming through a few hours after I posted this, roughly ~22 hours after the port was done, which beats the pants off a week :-)

How would voda know the landline and mobile are owned by the same person who likes one large bill? Maybe?
