Fix Google 2-Step verification issue on Ting mobile (Sorry, we can’t fulfill this request at this time)
Fix 1: Wait for 7 Days
This one is for the new Ting mobile users. If you have recently shifted to a new Ting mobile phone number and have tried unsuccessfully changing the number in your google account, it is advised to wait for 7 days before you try using the new number. There are also chances that Google might be using the old phone number that has recently been changed by you.
This trick or workaround has been reported working for a ton of users who are getting the Sorry, we can’t fulfill this request at this time. Please try again later or use a different phone number. error on the screen while using the Ting mobile phone number in 2-step verification.
You just have to keep smashing the blue-coloured SEND button in the bottom right corner after entering the mobile number. As per the users, this is the most effective way to get your Ting mobile phone number added in the 2-step verification. For some users tapping the SEND button 10 to 20 times, made them successfully receive the code to add that number in the 2-step verification.
Fix 3: Enter phone number without country code
A couple of users confirmed that their web browser saved their phone number to autofill in the phone number area. And in that saved mobile number the country code was pre-applied. And when they erased the auto-filled number and enter the number manually without any country code e.g. +1 is used for the US phone number.
If you are also relying on the autofill of your browser to under the mobile number, try entering the number manually and click on SEND. There are possibilities that you’ll be prompted to the next step along with a successful full code message or call on your entered number for the code. Also, while entering the number manually, make sure to select the country from the drop-down list located to the left of the phone number area.
There is no official confirmation or fix from the side of Google or Ting Mobile about this issue. Looking at the ways users used to get their Ting Mobile phone number working in the Google account’s 2-step verification process, the issue is most likely with Google and not with Ting Mobile. This can be strongly assumed on the basis that most of the users when spammed the SEND button 20 to 30 times, they were able to successfully use the same number in the 2-step verification. This might probably be due to the high load on its server as there are millions of people who have got the email from Google about the 2-step verification will automatically be turned on by the company on the 9th of November.
