    I was locked out due to unusual activity and I no longer have access to the phone number used so couldn't get the reset text

    The solution? Add another phone number and delete the first one. Straight in, no confirmation text needed.

    Security? We've heard of it.

    If you were locked out, how did you add the new number?

    From memory, it was a long time ago, I had the option to add a new number under the old one, on a page for confirming if the original telephone number was correct.

    'Enter username' page

    Then

    'We need to send you a text, please confirm this is the correct number' page, This is the page that allowed me to add a new number. I added a new one in as I figured I had nothing to lose, I was mildly surprised when it worked.
