Hello There
I hope you are saved and well.

I have traveled from Saudi Arabia to Egypt and I want to change my phone number. text message verification has been sent to the Saudi number phone. I tried to change the number, but it also sends activation to the Saudi number and I am currently in Egypt.

Can you help me to change my phone number?

 

Thank you.

Hello, I am having difficulty completing my account profile. On step 10, it asks for my phone number, and I get an error message saying that my phone number is in use. However I received a verification number via text from Upwork that was needed to verify my phone number. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Hi, 

When I am entering my phone number "for verification purposes" it says that this number is being used by another account. This is the only number that I have and I would like some help, please. 

Much appreciated!

The inputed phone number on my upwork is not working anymore and I plan on changing my current number on upwork but I can't verify my account when getting on the verify page as it sends a code on the number that's not working anymore. Is there any other way to verify my account? E-mail address perhaps?

Hi friends! 

 

I'd appreciate your advice assistance. I tried to withdraw my available funds just today and I am asked for a code from my old mobile phone (which I lost). I tried updating my settings but the moment I clicked on settings, I am still asked for a code sent to the same old number. 

 

Thank you.

 

Sincerely,

Kristine

Please, I need assistance with a way to verify my phone number here. Thanks. 

Hi Belynda,

 

I checked and it doesn't look like you are required to complete the phone verification process at the moment. The team will let you know if there is a need for any verification process in the future.

I am making a new account, and as far as I know I have closed all of the other ones I can think of. However when verifying my new account it says that my phone number is still being used, so I need to get this resolved. Thanks for your time.
