tinder verification


While using Tinder, it requires you to verify your account via your mobile number.
However the text verification code WILL NOT send to my Koodo phone (Not prepaid)

I have spoken with a rep at Tinder and they assured me the text was sent out, just not received. How can I solve this problem?

Are you getting able to receive all your other texts?
Yeah, everything else comes in just fine.

Well now I need to set up a tinder account for "testing purposes" 😉

Weird.  I signed up, all set up and started swiping.  No requirement for a phone number

Hi Stephen, can you tell me when (date/time) you tried the last time, so I can try to see if the message is being blocked?

Certainly, I just tried at around 3:50pm (-4:00 Atlantic)

Looking at your logs, I don't see the SMS confirmation from Tinder at all. Tinder is either not sending the verification, or sending it to another number. I had similar problems with Whatsapp in the past, and ended up using a different way to verify my number. Does Tinder offer other alternatives?

Sadly no, I've tried other numbers as well.

Looking on reddit, and seems like a bunch of other people are having the same issue :| Some people are saying that creating a new Facebook account with a new email address was successful. You can always try that. Unfortunately, there's nothing much more we can do, as the SMS isn't reaching our network at all.
