Instagram doesn't send SMS (PV issues)

Hello, guys!

Today I got a few accounts on PV (as usual) and couldn’t pass through that.
I tried all PV-services that I used before without any issues, but any of them did not work.
After that I decided to try to verify the same accounts with real SIM cards that I have for such situations and it neither worked.

I’ve got such situations a few times in May, 2019 but there was some kind of problem on Instagram’s side and everything worked in a few hours. So the solution was just to wait.
At this time it is much longer, but I still believe that I need to wait.

I asked a few guys who do Instagram Marketing and they confirmed that they have the same issue today.

So my questions are:

  1. Do you guys have such issues last 10-12 hours?
  2. What do you think about this in general? Is that a problem on Instagram’s side, either they test some kind of new protection?

I’ve only ever had 1 PV in over a year and that was because I created the account in one country, then set up automation to repost from another country on a proxy AND THEN i flew to another country on top of that and used the account there too whilst automating from country #2

To answer your question, I would suggest waiting 48 hours - I am sure this will solve the issue. It does when I have an EV loop with clients.

Actually, I think so too. Just decided to hear thoughts of the community members regarding this.
Thank you so much for the feedback!

Will update once the issue solved.

No problem at all :wink:

sounds stupid but is did you check first to see if the account isnt disabled first?

I heard switching sims does the trick.

Yes, sure. I’m talking about valid accounts.

Sorry, but what do you mean?

UPDATE: Actually, I’ve had three friends of my having same issues today during a few hours, but at the same time we’ve started recieving SMS’s from IG.
So atm everything is fine (if we can say so, fighting with IG) :slight_smile:

Question is still open: What do you think, guys? What’s that - a glitch either they test something new against these PVs we do?

I had that issue for one account. I had too many accounts attached to my number so I removed my number from a few accounts and then waited about a day and finally the code was sent for that first account.

How many accounts do you usually attach to 1 number, stable working?

Try to swap the number - It always works for me.

Some numbers never work, don’t know why. Even if i try to send the code “5” times. Then I switch to an other number --> Instant SMS.
