I am currently trying to set up the mobile security key feature for Paypal but am not receiving anything from paypal in the form of a security key, or any response from their help text number. I contacted paypal about this and they said they key is being successfully sent out, but I am not receiving it. Does verizon not support Paypal's security text system? I am able to receive security texts/login codes through bank of america, google, and other services just fine.
Thanks for any help.
Hi xchaosx674! Glad to see another Paypal user! I've looked into this, but haven't found any evidence that Verizon would in anyway prevent you from getting messages from tha source. When you contacted with Paypal about this, were they able to send you a test message? If not, I would recommend this to see if this is a specific Paypal to your number issue.

Sorry, I forgot to check back here. I contacted PayPal and they were able to determine that the text message was being successfully sent out, I just never receive it. It gets lost out there somewhere. I tried requesting another code today and I still am not receiving anything.
I'm not sure, how would I go about checking this? I have unlimited texting and data on my plan but I haven't heard of premium texting before; also I've never had problems receiving security texts and other key codes sent to my phone from other services.
According to PayPals page "There is no fee to use your mobile phone as your PayPal Security Key. Standard text messaging rates apply when you receive a security code by SMS", makes no mention of premium, but it might be the issue.
