Google verification problems

Not sure where else i could post this so figured i would give it a try on here. I upgraded chrome on my desktop last night and it needed to verify my account by sending me a pin number through text message.  No big deal, right?  Well i have my Sprint number ported to Google Voice account so the pin number i need to log in to google goes to GV and i can't receive it because i can't log in...  I sent in for help and they say it will be 3-5 days before they can verify it's me.  Does anyone have any ideas for how i can see this pin? Disable my port doesn't seem to be an option.  It doesn't give me any other options besides texting so right now im without gmail, texts, snapchat, google music, etc.  Screwed this one up big time.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Google verification can be tough to make changes too. Best to disable it then re-enable it. My father in law recently got locked out of his Galaxy S5 and Google took 6 days to reset it and help him...all because he enabled two factor authentication.

I think it's too late because I already have it enabled. I created a new Google account so I have Snapchat back but no texts, gmail, or music still. Hopefully Google will come through and I can add my tablet number for verification so this doesn't happen again. They asked when my google account was created and a bunch of other questions I don't really know the exact answer to.

I went to sprint to see if they could help me undo my GV port or have any ideas and they had no idea what I was talking about. Typical.

 

I would lose all my photos, 7.99 all access rate, youtube videos, emails. That would suck!

Call into customer service. The should be able to give you the code/or a way around it if you can provide enough information to verify your account.

Yeah, call Google. They WILL help...it just takes a couple days.

    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term.
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
    • Verizon site at Woodbury Commons finally got C-band. I'm seeing upwards of 600Mbps there, a massive improvement over the <1Mbps I used to see. LTE is now at 10-20Mbps which is significantly better than before where speed tests would often fail. My only complaint is that C-band is super inconsistent. Not sure if it's a software issue but sometimes I'm connected to it and get the 600Mbps speeds previously mentioned and other times I connect and only see 15Mbps. Seems like whatever load balancing the network is trying to do is still shoving a ton of people to LTE, even in conditions where I have a strong C-band signal.  — — — — — You're absolutely right. The site on top of Bais Sarah Hall at 6101 16th Ave got decommissioned. Sad that they haven't installed a new site to fill in that coverage gap.  — — — — — In other news a carrier reached out to the board of my grandmother's building in Brooklyn about installing antennas on top of it so she called me today because she knows I map cell towers and she said a lot of people in her building, especially the folks on the upper floors, are worried about the health effects lol. I asked her if she knew what carrier it would be but she said she doesn't know. A quick glance at Cellmapper tells me it's either Dish or AT&T since Verizon and T-Mobile both have sites within a two block radius of her building but AT&T barely builds new sites so I'm leaning Dish. They're asking for a 25-year lease with an option to renegotiate the lease after 10-years. The board of her co-op said that if they do it, maintenance fees will go down since they'll be offset by the rent that the carrier would be paying them. She said she already voted in favor of it but she thinks that a lot of the older people in her building are against it.
    • Galaxy S7 FE most certainly doesn't have the same level of NR CA (if at all), it also looks like it doesn't have SA NR, so it's is inherently going to be much slower since most of the spectrum is now focused on NR rather than LTE. It's likely the same generation radio as the S21 (or maybe S20). Having trouble finding which it would be.
    • T-Mobile seems to be paying close attention to how much of B2 they refarm for NR, as on this trip down to South Padre Island I saw both 20x20 n25 and 20x20 B2 (but not both simultaneously) at various points on the trip. At South Padre itself, seems like someone else has 2.5 GHz licensed so the n41 setup here is 20+80 MHz. Speeds are still decent, but VZW has 100+60 MHz n77 live (and AT&T has some 80+40).
