Installing a new rom and 2 google step verification

I have a newbie question. There has got to be a proper way of logging in to Google with new rom install after a factory reset with 2 step verification turned on. I type in my gmail  user name and password and it sends the 2 step verification code to the phone as a sms message but I don't see any way to exit the screen and view the code. I finally used some recovery codes I printed out a while back. After I get  past this point I can then go see the sms with the code I no longer need.  Is that the only way to handle this snafu?

I have my Google Voice number set up as an alternate number. When I don't get the code via SMS, I tell it I'm having problems receiving the code and it lets me select my alternate number. Then I go to my computer and use my GV chrome extension to get the code. Usually I'm at or near my computer when I'm flashing a ROM anyway, so it works well for me.

Next time I get a new phone I will have to have a app password set up if I am to let the dealer set it up. I won't have a PC handy to get er done as Larry the cable guy says.

I don't ever let them setup my phone. Activate it and I am good.

I usually wait and log in to google after I have gone through the initial setup.

 

This avoids the whole 2 step verification, and prevents all my previous apps from auto-downloading.

 

in other words, when it first asks you to log in to google, hit skip.

    • I was thinking that Dish could be in a pickle with limited low-band.  But forgot they will have n26. Dish needs to also push carriers to support that band as well. I know that is like 14x14.  With 5G, is that something that Dish will be fully able to utilize?
    • Update: Throughout my time in Ireland, I've been on 4G (LTE) via Global Roaming with no issues. Nothing from Sprint/TMo re upgrading service. Hopefully, no bad surprises on my next bill . . .   Installed new TMo SIM in my daughter's phone while here, and she's had no data whatsoever. I had received mixed responses from TMo folks prior to the trip as to whether that was possible.
    • Went up to Woodbury again and it looks like the Archdiocese and NW Spectrum LLC are hampering T-Mobile's ability to expand beyond 40MHz still. Unlike in NYC, Band 41 is still alive and well on Sprint in Orange County. I was seeing 20MHz of Band 41 on both Sprint and T-Mobile. n41 is still at 40MHz unfortunately with no sign of a second n41 carrier anywhere. 
    • Author kinda doesn't know what they're talking about, as they assumed their speeds were n71-only (it's like they half-read the PCMag article they cite). The speeds they're mentioning are 100% from n71 + n66 SDL, which also explains speeds dropping off a cliff when they walk indoors. In fact, Dish has some paired AWS-3 in Spokane, albeit just 5x5, so I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't bothered deploying that and are just doing 71 + n66 SDL (the former at 5x5). May head down to San Marcos and New Braunfels tonight to do some testing. I expect either n71-only or n71 + SDL, not sure which. n71 is 5x5 here as Dish has leased half of their 10x10 to T-Mobile. When that lease expires they'll be at 10x10, and they could get another 10 MHz FD (albeit not contiguous) from speculators if T-Mobile didn't outbid them. Will be interesting to see who buys what when.
