Can I get an SMS code forwarded from my U.S. number to my Mexico number?


Recommended Posts

I have BOA and they wont accept a Mexican Cell phone number beginning with a +52.  I use Textnow.com with a virtual number in the Seattle area (425 area code) and then you enter that 425 number in your BOA profile. Just did a transfer this morning from BOA to BBVA and got my "code" within 10 seconds of the request.

We aren't using a cellphone number.  We use our landline number.  This is with Chase.

do you mean Chase will call your Mexican landline with the 2-factor code? I don't see how a text can be received on a landline.

Yes, they call 376xxxxxxx .  It is an automated voice message which includes the numbers for the code.  Chase would not accept a cellphone number.

iPhone does it. In SETTINGS look under MESSAGES then configure under TEXT MESSAGE FORWARDING. Any device configured right gets the text messages. 

There is also some place a setting for identities to receive messages for like email's and phone numbers that I've run into configuring. Input the emails and phone numbers and as long as they aren't taken by another apple account it should work.

Wouldn’t you have to leave the iPhone in the US?…

I don't think so. The notifications are via the Apple devices listed contacts like numbers and email addresses. It an internet account when it apple messages. Not a strickly phone. Figures as long as you Apple account has WiFi access or cell data it should work.

The OP needs text from his US bank for two factor security… Your saying a IPhone with a US cell number only needs an internet connection outside of the US to get texts by changing the setting you recommend?…

It's not changing any settings. It's using the standard available setting you can make. Look on an Apple iOS devices settings for MESSAGES under the Send & Receive. Phone numbers and emails can be used. There is always testing it if you have an Apple device. Send a text. If you don't have a US number use a Google supplied number.

Good luck

I have a VPN so that might work.

 

 

I think the bank sends to the number weeding out the out of country numbers. The VPN concerns only the out and in to your device not how data is handled to become available to your device. That's where it figures if you have contact info on your device with a USA number supplied by google or some other and your email and Mexico number all in your send and receive setting of the iOS Messages setting along with mirror on all device then you should get the texts popping up on the Mexico device. It's no hard task to test unless menus and setting are hard. If you don't have an Apple device I have no idea. I ditch the google and android hack my information and spam advertising games a long time ago.
