kentarganbright, I know how important it is to be able to receive short code messages. Let's see what's going on. Are your premium SMS services enabled? When did this first start?  EricaG_VZW

Having issues receiving these verification messages. Using iPhone 6s Plus. Recently ported number over from AT&T. Beyond unlimited customer. Tried troubleshooting steps under "Can't send or receive text messages" but to no avail. Bank of America is sending verification messages and can't get in. Please help!

Being able to receive verification messages is important, and we are here to assist you. Are every other messages functioning correctly? (SMS, and MMS) AlbertP_VZW

My husband and I just ported our phone numbers from AT&T to Verizon and are on a new IphoneXr.  We are getting texts UNLESS they are to verify our identify.  Ie, our bank, my work e-mail, etc will send a text with a number we have to type in in order to gain access to our accounts on the new phone but we never get the text.  It seems like this has happened to a lot of people.  What is the solution?  We need access to our accounts and e-mail.  We have the unlimited plan (not pre-paid) and again, regular texts to/from people are working.  Need a solution ASAP.

Issues with messages are never fun. What messaging app (default, etc.) are you using? Were you able to receive these kind of texts before?

I have been noticing this lately too- never used to happen.  My wife just texted me and that went through, while I'm waiting like 8 minutes and still not getting the SMS 2FA message from the website I am trying to log into.  I am on prepaid, if it matters.
