Should be a text message but it'll be to the registered phone number. Did you get a new number with the new phone? Can you pop the old SIM in a spare phone?

same sim same number, looks like someone (possibly me) inadvertantly switched on this ' 2 step verification'. weirdly though I did have the sim in a very old phone while awaiting delivery and Whatsapp worked for a while.. Confused no way around thie according to onlime help..
hey ho!

eBay does a similar thing, but sometimes they want to verify you're a human by clicking on pictures of boats or buses etc., except the 'verification' never f'ing works.

After a few days they let you sign in again but it's bizarre, locking people out of your site just because (I assume it's happening to others).

I went to buy something last night (new bed sheets as it happens) from somewhere I've bought things before.

Tried to log into the account with my usual don't give a fuck password because if someone wants to hack it and send more new bed sheets to my work address, I don't care.

It insisted on a password change from a link sent to my email before it would process the checkout. Then it insisted I make up a new password which conforms to their new (unspecified) password rules.

At this point I decided I couldn't be arsed making up another new password so I tried using their guest checkout. That wouldn't let me buy the stuff either because my email has already been registered to an account.

So I gave up and bought them off ebay instead.

I wonder how much business companies lose by making it unecessarily difficult to buy stuff off them?

The trains. This isn't strike related either; trying to book a train to get down to the marathon in the smoke in October, but no trains available anywhere - they're all "unavailable" as "there might be engineering works". FFS how is anyone supposed to be able to plan anything? Surely planned engineering works should be, err well, planned?! Reactive to emergency works I get, can't do anything about that, but planned works that affect so many people should be carefully orchestrated. Thank f*ck we don't have to spend much for the privilege of train travel . . . oh, wait. Rolling Eyes

That's what we get from nationalised services but for some silly reason some people think that nationalised rail services would be a good idea.

I'm glad that you think the sooner we get rid of all remanants of our once glorious empire the better.

If it was called the British Empire Games I would be all for it because then the BBC wouldn't have it on. Thumbs Up

But that would include getting rid of you Nobby Wink

And if we got rid of all traces of the empire, that would mean much less diversity among the people of this country. You really ought to think things through before you adopt these silly ideologies Nobby.
