I'm sorry for the trouble that you're having while adding your phone number. Could you please try adding the phone number in this format "(country code) phone number" without the plus (+) sign for the country code, make sure to wrap the country code in brackets and add a space between the country code and the phone number. Thank you!
This is my account (https://www.upwork.com/o/profiles/users/~014b77311a1bce10c2/) but I can't access it because I'm still creating it but I get to a point where I'm asked "
Next, you'll be asked to verify your phone number for added security" and "For added security, enter your phone number and we’ll text you a security code to verify it’s you. Messaging rates may apply."
However, when I enter it and select 'verify', I don't receive any text at all, so I'm stuck.
I can't access that account or do anything else on that page.
What shall I do?

I currently live abroad and do not have a US phone number anymore. How do you suggest going through the verification process when signing up as a freelancer?
You have to use the country you reside in, so you don't need an US phone number, but a local one anyway.
