Verification For First Publish - Not Received.

    Hello All,

    I'm new to HubPages and have just finished writing my first hub. This, I understand, requires phone verification. I provided my Indian mobile number but did not receive the Text message or the call. I guess I tried too many times and I'm now getting a message telling me to try again after 24 hours. Perhaps, I'm entering the wrong code or something. Does anyone know what area code I should enter for an Indian mobile number?

      DuaneJ, I'm from the US so I did not have to phone verify, but did you try the number with your country code as well? Not sure if that'll fix your problem, but maybe worth a try.  Google says your country code is 91 so try 91 then area code then number.

        Thanks for the reply Jay. The country code is automatically prefixed by the system. I tried entering the area code but that too did not work. I'm not sure if the mobile area codes are different from the landline area codes. I'm confused!

          Check out this thread: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/113897 .  I guess the verification number could be blocked on your phone carrier and you should try to verify with a voice instead.

    Try +91 or 0091

    You can also try having them call you to verify. I had some problems when I started with verifying through SMS. And that's what I did and it worked out try it and see if that works for you

    DuaneJ,

    Add 91 to your mobile phone number.

    Thanks everyone...but now when I hit 'Publish' I'm getting a pop-up to enter the confirmation number that was sent to my phone. But I haven't received one to begin with.

    I don't know if this will help - but when we do it from the UK we have to drop the 0 from the start of the mobile number.

    Thanks pkmcruk but I'm not adding any zeroes. I wonder if I should post this in the technical help section so that a manual verification can be completed by one of the site Admin, if required. Is there a way to transfer this thread there or do I need to write a new post?

    Duane J I got the same thing when I try to publish my first hub. So try logging out completely from hubpages and delete the cookies too and that should help with conformation message and allow you to start over with the verification process. And if I may ask are you doing this process from your phone or laptop?

      Thanks for the suggestion. I'm using a laptop.

          Matter resolved. I went through voice call call verification and it worked. Thanks all!
