I recently had an experience at Costco while making a large dollar purchase. I was using my Visa debit card and was told by the cashier I needed to call the card issuer. I called the bank and was told I had exceeded the dollar limit. The bank approved the amount needed but I needed to reply to the text the bank was sending me. Proof of ID. I never received the text. They sent it twice more. never received the text. The bank told me to text them at 93557 I did. they did not receive the text. I paid by other means and left.
I do not believe I was on WiFi in Costco. I had never set up the phone for Costco. I was probably on cell.
When I got home I called the bank and went over the problem again with them . They said they would try to text me again and the text would be coming from 93577. The text never arrived.
Does republic not permit text from 5 digit numbers?
Are text from bank and other business that are using normal 10 digit phone number being blocked by the spam blockers in republic?
Are texts from normal numbers 10 digits being blocked if the sender has there number unavailable?
