Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this on 2degrees or if it's an Amazon problem.
Not receiving the 2FA SMS to my 2degrees number. Native 022 number, not ported.

Looks like the last one I successfully received was from 2829 shortcode on 10th October.
Been trying the last few days but haven't got one to come through to my phone yet.

I recommend moving away from SMS based 2FA if possible. It's unreliable internationally and secondly and more importantly, with a big increase in the number of sims being cloned overseas, it's just a matter of time till it gets here, and this would pretty much make using SMS a less secure option.


It's probably not as big of a deal for something like Amazon, depending if you have your Credit card details saved, but still better to get away from SMS.

Tried restarting your phone? My SMS's got blocked up a while ago and reboot fixed it.
