Customer Question

Hello I have had 2 g-mail accounts that I recently used the two step verification process fr additional security of my e-mails. I changed my phone number on my existing I-phone and I did not remember to make a change of this new phone number in my e-mail contact settings.
The two step process is working and it is being sent to my old Verizon phone number which is off. What can you do to hep me get this fixed on my new phone? I can verify any other security issues or??

The verification 6 digit number is ***** to my old phone number-not my new one.

Once I get a six digit number on my new phone I can fix this.

I am not sure you understand that without the six figure verification code that is being sent to an old non working phone number on my I phone 6.
I can access both e mails from my I phone, not my insecure computers.
