    Instagram is starting to make me mad. This is the second time that I am unable to verify a phone number on an account.

    Both accounts have been good ideas and IG wont allow me to verify. I type in the number (Ive tried 3 different phone numbers) and never end up getting the verification text.

    Anyone had a similar issue or could offer any assistance? I am extremely anxious to get this accounts running.

    Have not experience that kind of problem. Just try to wait around 5-15mins when you are waiting for the verification number.

    Problem solved. I used a different phone with a different service and it worked. I guess my other phone service was banned.

    It seems they don't send the text to numbers sometimes.

    I've had the same issue and like you, using a different number worked. I guess they have an odd number/ service provider banning script.
