Unable to Receive SMS or short codes

I am receiving any confirmation codes or sms text messages from any sources. I have SMS messages turned on in my iphone settings. But every time I request a verification text from Microsoft, Instagram, etc. I don’t  receive a text. What do I have to do to fix this?
