Hi.
I'm trying to set up my sisters cellphone with her twitter account but I can't get it to work.
I entered the Country code as: +64 and the Mobile number as: 21#######
And it reloads the page showing "There was an error in validating 21#######. Please try again in a few minutes"
Now I've tried to get it set up for the last few weeks. Am I doing this wrong? Because I remember when I did set my phone up a few months ago, it was only 1 box so I put +6421###### and it worked.

Grr. I tried what you said but it still says the same thing.
But the weird thing is it works when I put "+64" in the first box and 8 digits (X XXX XXXX) in the second box it works.

To be fair I used a contract number i.e 021 xxx xxx rather than a longer prepay number... maybe it doesnt like VFNZ prepay numbers?
