Hi there! I’m trying to create a profile as a freelancer, and the text isn’t being sent to verify my phone number. I’ve triple checked and I’ve put the correct number in. How can I get my phone number verified?

Hello, I am creating an account as a freelancer and I'm on the final step. It tells me my phone number is in use, but that shouldn't be the case. Now I am stuck and cannot seem to continue.

Hi. My name is Dilshod. I'm a freelancer.  I'm want to verify the telephone number. 

Hi Dilshod,

 

Phone verification isn't an option available for all users on Upwork. If you are required, you will receive a notification requesting you to do so. Thank you.

I signed up for the wrong account, I signed up for a client account instead of a freelancer account. I closed the client account and opened a freelancer account but now it says that my phone number is being used by another account. 

 

How can I fix this?

I want to add for account verification my phone (one linked to PE) but I can't add it due to invalid country code.

Thank you, Bojan but I don't have changes after I clear cache - to be specific - I want to edit a "span.country-code"  element but it is locked and I can't edit it.

I created my account yesterday and it says my phone number is being used by another account--I used to have a different Upwork account that I went in and deleted yesterday, but it still won't let me put my phone number in my new (this) account.

That's because you are not allowed to have another account. You need to delete your new account and have our original account opened again. That (the original account) is the only account you are ever allowed to have.

Hi Sydney,

 

Please be reminded that Upwork does not allow users to have multiple freelancer accounts. Please click on my name and send me a PM with more information about the account you closed. I'll check that for you and assist you accordingly.

 

Thank you.

Hi there, 

 

I have a problem with my phone number. I have added a new phone number in profile but it still showing an old number while login from a new device. I don't have that number now. So, each time I have to go to Gmail to get the code. 

 

Please send me the solution.

Thanks

I am trying to set up my profile but cannot verify my phone as I am not recieving the text message with the PIN. The phone number entered is correct. I have re-entered the same number several times. I no longer have the option to resend the text. I'm not sure how to proceed.

Hello,
Apologies if this is the wrong subforum for this question.


I am trying to confirm my account and the last step is verifying my phone number. Back when I tried to make the account I didn't have my phone on me and now I'm permanently locked from verifying one. Every time I type in an alternate phone number, the verification says I failed to verify. I've tried so many different phone numbers and it just clears them and then puts in the old one. Any way I can reset this so I can put my original number in?

I must've created an old Upwork profile in the past.

 

I am trying to create a profile now, and it says my phone number is currently in use under another profile. I have no idea what that old profile could be or what email address I used, but I am unable to move forward as I am not able to enter my phone number.

 

Any advice?
