Activating Messages+ On Device Without Camera

How can I activate Messages+ on an iPhone 7 where the camera is disabled due to working in a secure (security) environment?  In other words, is there an alternative to scanning a QR code to activate Messages+?

We understand the importance of security for your job and not wanting to have access to your camera. With regard to the QR code you would have to scan this in order to complete the setup process. Alternatively you will be sent a text with the QR code that can be sent over to the application. If you select no access to camera and go to your text messages you will see the QR code and instructions on how to use it in the application. Please go through the prompts and complete the set up in the way that works best for your job security. You can still set it up without access to your camera. I hope this helps.

Can you please provide more details on how to do this.  I forwarded the link on got on my primary phone to my work phone, and cliked the link to activate on this phone.  It opens the app and asks for my cell number and I get stuck in a loop.

We certainly want you being able to use the Verizon Message Plus without any issues. Do you have an active account with Verizon Wireless? The reason why I ask is that you can use and sync the Verizon Message Plus app as long as you register your 10 digit mobile number that is associated with your phone. If the service on your work phone is not Verizon Wireless, then you would not be able to activate Verizon Message Plus. If you have Verizon Wireless for the phone you are trying to activate Verizon Message Plus on, please follow the link for the steps needed https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/how-to-use-verizon-messages-apple/

Once you download the app, enter your 10 digit Verizon Wireless number. A text message with a QR code will be sent. Click on the QR code that was sent via text, it will take you directly to the app to finish the activation process. Please let me know how that works.
