Can no longer receive short codes after switching carriers

I Switched my carrier to Verizon and now I am no longer able to receive short codes for verification. Phone is unlocked, paid off and able to receive regular text messages. Any app that I used before switching no longer recieves the short code messages.

It is important that you are able to receive short codes, Abo91. Are you having trouble with a few specific numbers, or every short code? What messaging app do you normally use as a default?

Abo90, allow me to be the first to officially welcome you to the Verizon Wireless family. You mentioned that you have just made the switch, when did you move to Verizon? Are you able to send and receive other messages? Are you connected to Wi-Fi?  LorenB_VZW
