Like the title says, I am not receiving short code sms texts such as verification numbers from apps like Uber or Lyft. I have had Verizon for less than a month and I tranferred my number from my old plan.
Zoinks, not receiving short code SMS is concerning, benjaminmanderson94,
and you’ve given us a few leads to work with. Thank you for those, and thank
you for becoming a Verizon Wireless customer. Let’s dive deeper. If it hasn’t
been looked at, then check to see of there are carrier updates: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201270
Is the device you’re using now a new one, or is it a carryover from your prior

Same problem. New device, ported my number over from another provider. Not receiving short-code SMS messages. After hours on the phone with text support, nothing.
Disregard. After hours on the phone with tech support, I seem to have resolved it by changing my "Region". Not sure how it's possible that I found the solution after all that, but it's done. Can you helpe me in closing a work order Number?
I'm happy to hear that it is working for you now, kentarganbright. Where did you change your region? Can you clarify what you mean by closing a work order number? Did you have a ticket made for this issue? EricaG_VZW
We want to make sure you are able to receive short code SMS messages. To clarify, what is the make and model of your new device? Did you switch from an Android to Apple or vice versa by chance?
