Can't continue with game development. SMS Authentication is still broken

stackarn
Level 4

I'm really sad because I need to update my software and after recent updates I'm no longer developer and I can't even run my builds on my Quest2 and Meta Quest Pro devices.

I've managed to get into developer mode by enable 2FA in the past but now I'm not sure if that's enough?

I can't get any SMS-authentication codes because it seems to be broken.

Everywhere in this forum I can see there are more problems related to this but unfortunately no answers.

Should I just give up?

I'm really happy to get all the forum-badges! (https://youtu.be/uEvWg_Yikxs) I got 5 today! πŸ˜‚

Hi I know this is not really the right way but I used this website to finally get an sms and got mine to work.

HI everyone,

I only want to share how it worked for me:
I deleted the 2FA and Telefonnumber on the meta account page and under facebook and I try it again. This worked for me.
Still frustrating to try it 100 ways until something worked...

I am trying to verify my developer account with 2FA, but I'm also not receiving an SMS.

Tried several times over a timespan of a few hours, but I'm just not receiving a code.

Did you also get the sms-confirmation replies? As it works with the receive-sms-service linked above, I think their own sms-service is quite limited.

Oh, I also got some new achievements, lol!

Yes I got the sms-confirmation. Everything worked smoothly without a workaround.

Hi, I'm also having a problem with this. I tried setting up an organization to use developer mode and sideload, but trying to get 2FA working is getting me nowhere. I set up with an authenticator app but my account still isn't verified, so I can't set up an organization in order to put my device in developer mode. Very frustrating, last time I developed on the Quest 1 I didn't have these issues.
