Better to connect with Support than use methods which have already been flagged as being a work-around for people who say they are in places where they are not.
Thank you for reaching out to us, Nyla.
I've escalated your account information to our support team. One of our agents will reach out to you directly to assist you with your phone verification process.
It looks like you have an open ticket already (Ticket #26603675) and the team is yet to get back to you on the same ticket thread. I will go ahead and follow up with the team handling your issue so that they can assist you further.
As a gentle reminder, please refrain from opening new tickets of the same issue so that the team handling your case can assist you more efficiently.
I created an Upwork account, but when I got to phone number page and entered my phone number the message I keep getting is: "This number is being used by another account".
It's my phone number so how do I deal with that?
