Default Change phone number in Paypal

I was trying to add a Bank account onto Paypal(verified, years old account) for withdrawal and PP was asking for text message verification. I do not have access to that number anymore.

What should I do now? If i try adding this bank account for a few more times, would i be able to luckily add it without text verification eventually?

Or do I have to change to a new phone?

You can add a phone number by logging into PayPal.

Sometimes they'll still insist on sending text to original number, but worth trying to remove old number and trying.

I read in other post here that if you change to a new phone number, it takes several months before you can use it for text verification purpose, is that still true?

When I did it on my account (US) it took just short of a month on a 3 month old account.

Well that sucks. Dealing with something similar where they won't send the text to my phone and won't let me change it... Oh well, at least now I know I can fix it in a month. Did you call in or anything?
