I have just tried to publish a new hub, and have been told that HubPages needs my telephone number before I can publish it. I have never encountered this before and think there is something strange. Is this something new for HubPages, or am I right to suspect something strange?
It happened to me too. Beofre I published my first hub, I was asked to verify my phone number, which I did. I was then sent a verification code through my phone, which I had to enter into HP to verify my identity....Gmail asks you to verify your phone number too. Since I used my gmail to register at HP, I didn't find it too hard inputting my phone number. Besides, I was just too full of excitement publishing my first hub that I didn't mind hastily typing in my phone number....I only use my laptop to publish.
I'm not exactly sure, but I thought that entering the phone number was because people were publishing from a phone, iphone or something like that?
As far as I know, HP asking for a phone is legitimate, but since I don't have a cell phone or use HP via one causes my uncertainty.

Oops, I just found out that Holmes already left. That phone number verification thing probably scared him off *shrugs*

I've tried countless times with two phone numbers to verify my phone, but it keeps saying, "We can not call the phone number you provided at this time, please use SMS or try again later."Any ideas?

I could not receive the SMS verification so I tried the call verification method instead. I received a call from Hubpages with the message "... If you are expecting this call, please press 1....". I pressed 1 but there is no response from the automated caller. Tried the same verification...
