Hello! I am trying to finish my account set up with UpWork and need to verify my phone number. However, when I send the verification code, I receive an error saying that my phone number has already been used on a different account. Can you please advise?
In creating my profile, it says my phone number is tied to another account. I'm not sure what account that would be. I need the number for my personal account here to finish my profile.
I have no phone at all and therefore cannot get past the phone code part of the profile setup. I usually call people using skype and therefore do not need a phone. How can I setup my profile?

Will upwork pay for my phone contract?
No of course not. But you need one to work on this platform. It's not just for the initial registration, it's also for 2 factor authentification down the line.
Also, you don't need a contract, just get a cheap one and a Pay As you go SIM card.
Chances are, a lack of a phone isn't the issue here, the wrong prefix is.
