Use different texting number for 2FA with hotspot account?

Hello, I only have a hotspot on my account, the Inseego M2100, no other line on the account. My cell phone is on a different Verizon account.

I want to enable two factor authentication, but the settings page only offers to send the auth code to the hotspot's phone number. Not a good option because it requires that my hotspot is on and connected when I want to login to my account.

Can I use my cell phone number for 2FA instead? It is listed as the primary number for account contact. Thank you
