Re: Issues receiving OTP text messages: Santander

Hi All,

I had this issue for many months with OTP & Notification/ verification codes & know how absolutely frustrating it is.

I spoke with several people at VM with no joy & then, completely unexpected,  i spoke to a lady in Customer service & boom, all my problems were solved !!

The issue was resolved by first checking the settings in Messages.

So, open your Message icon > next click on 3 dots top right > click Settings > click More Settings > click Text Messages . Message Centre number should read +447458399008.

Next, open Settings icon on your phone > next Mobile Networks > check that VoLTE calls to Sim 2 is not on. 

After checking these settings, restart your mobile phone. This worked for me guys after many frustrating months.

Good luck 👍

Re: Issues receiving OTP text messages: Santander

Thanks for coming back to us @Irenec and I'm sorry that you're having ongoing issues with OTP messages on your handset. 

 

What have the team advised so far and have you been sent out a new sim card to try to help resolve the issues?

 

Would you be happy for me to look into this further for you? We may need to send over a private message to confirm some account details.

 

Regards,

Steven_L

Re: Issues receiving OTP text messages: Santander

Irenec,

you would be better off just moving to another provider, rather than messing about with VM.  A new sim 'might' work, but probably only for a while, then the same problem appears (several posters have had this problem) Been there, done that, without success, sadly.

This thread has been running just 2 weeks short of a YEAR, and to date, VM are NO NEARER solving the problem, despite telling us every so often 'that they are working hard to find a solution'  yet all that happens, is, they ask for information, (which it appears they do nothing with) 

I have had to get another cheap PAYG sim, and carry 2 phones, because I cannot get 2FA or OTP messages from bank, building society, credit card firm, etc... (strange how other networks don't suffer this problem, just VM) because I need these messages, and VM are not interested in actually DOING anything to provide them...

Quickest solution, with less hassle and hair tearing is go elsewhere....Simples!!

Re: Issues receiving OTP text messages: Santander

Hi

Try contacting the Executive Team @ VM.

Number is 0800 052 0264.

They escalate your problem & sort it one way or another.

It worked for me after many months of issues. I tried a new sim & a factory reset on my VM phone all to no avail.

In the end it was down to the settings on my phone. Check the Message Centre phone number in Messages settings. Also, on the main phone settings, check Connections > Mobile Networks > VoLTE calls to SIM 2 is off.

Good luck 👍

Is this problem associated with the use of WiFi Calling?

Re: Issues receiving OTP text messages: Santander

I have wifi calling "off"

In Messages > Message Centre No.[REMOVED].

In Settings > Connections > Mobile Networks > VoLTE calls to SIM 2 off.
