SMS Verification Down?
I have not use SS for a while, but last week I tried to turn it up in a renovation that I am working on. I tried to set up SMS alerts on my Verizon phone, but never received a verification text. I hit re-send several times, and got nothing. Thinking that perhaps it was a carrier issue, I then tried to send alerts to my AT&T phone. Same thing. Now the little red "verify" flags are next to both numbers. I called the HD, and after waiting an hour was told that their whole texting system was down, and I should "try it next week." Also, I was told that even if the number was verified manually, then I still would not get the actual alerts. The more I have thought about this, the more skeptical that I have become. If the whole thing is down, wouldn't there be more postings here on the issue? Has anyone else heard of this?
