Mobile phone number deactivated for Facebook text messages

Got this email when I tried to authenticate to FB with a text to my phone:

the mobile service provider this number was registered with no long recognizes this number as valid.

Facebook does not recognize republic (Bandwidth) numbers {which are VOIP and seen as Wire/land lines} [I know they where working on this but have not see any progress in some time]

This is a recent development. It has been working for over a year.
