    I'm about to use a PVA sms service but would it even work the second time around?

    If you don't have access to the phone number, the account stays locked. I guess you can try contacting the support saying, you don't have access to the phone number on file, as long as it is just one or two accounts, in mass it won't work for obvious reasons.

    You either need physical sim cards or an online service with re-verification feature.

    I had exactly the same issue and just changed the number. Quite weird that you can do that so easily btw, but I guess if you have 2FA on, it doesn't work.

    How can you change the number if you're locked out of your account though?

    Unfortunately, you can't
