SMS from a website or bank

NumberBarn’s numbers are classified as “wireline“. There is nothing NumberBarn can do to change this regulatory (FCC) classification.

Many businesses, financial institutions and social media platforms require verification of accounts through a users “wireless” number. They may not support sending notifications to a “wireline” number. You’ll want to check with that organization about their messaging to make sure that a number with NumberBarn can work for you.

We cannot guarantee that a text message authorization will arrive through your NumberBarn number. 

If you plan to set up your number with NumberBarn to use with a notification service, check with that company first to verify they can send to landline/wireline numbers.
