    I randomly got a request to verify my Instagram account through SMS.

    No matter whether I use my real number or online SMS sites, nothing gets accepted.

    Is this a bug or is it their way of locking my account?

    Haha.. I didn't see this..

    Okay fine mate. Instagram send verification code after 12 hour sometime. But in latest feature instagram call you within 3 minutes. If you didn't get any call or message then try after 2 days they will send you. I had the same prob before. But I tried after 2 days they sent message and account got verified.

    I think they have some bugs.

    It's been two weeks and I'm still unable to verify the account with any number...It's starting to look like it's locked down or something.

    It's a bug, report it to Facebook. They have a bounty program, you will earn yourself $1337 for reporting the bug.

    On a serious note, if you haven't received the code for a few days on that number, don't expect to receive it. Try another number, or you'll never get past the verification. Based on my experience :)
