when Im signing up to different WEB services they will often send me some kinda 'access code' to my mobile and ask me to enter the code in the website I guess as a security measure. well the problem is the last few times ive tried (everything from amazon to the HMRC) I never receive the code on my virginmobile nokia phone. Ive tried turning off parental controls and premium call barring but nothing seems to work??
Re: receiving access codes from companies on the web
Out of curiosity, have you tried sending the access codes to another number, maybe one that is on another network that belongs to someone else, just as a test to see if it comes through?
Other than that though, I'll have to leave it to the Forum Team to discuss further with you, they will have a much better idea of who to point you to in terms of getting this resolved, although it's most likely going to take a phone call.
The only thing I can think of is, VM may be blocking the SMS as they're company numbers in an attempt to stop spam!
I'll always try my best to help, although my advice may not always lead to a solution. Take it as you wish, I just like to help
