Not receiving text message from important sender (bank-sec code). From a short # (ex: 66213). Help!
1
I contacted the bank directly and they confirmed that the message is properly sending on their end. I am just not receiving it. All other incoming text messages work fine, and I have in the past (about 6 months ago) been able to receive text messages from the same exact number my bank is sending me now.

So ridiculous.  I had the same problem where a bank was trying to send me a verification code via Text, and the message simply would not come to me.  This happens frequently when a company is trying to send me a verification code - and it simply will not come to me!  Why in the heck should I PAY FOR A CELL PHONE if I have Google Voice???  So EFFING STUPID.  (I can receive any other text from regular people via SMS)   This is simply a GOOGLE VOICE ISSUE!  Make your crap compatible!!!

I'm 100% with you. It is very VERY inconvenient that I cannot receive these 6 digits texts. So many services nowadays require to do 2 steps verification via text and it's simply annoying that I can't receive these. I wish I knew this issue in advance, I have had not done this...

I can't make this any clearer:  your financial institution sets this policy, not Google Voice.  There is nothing at all that Google can do about it.
