While I wait patiently for my D7 visa to be approved I’m hoping for some recommendations to what seems to be an issue for those who remain abroad longer than 6 months when it comes to maintaining your US mobile nbr for two-factor authentications, which is needed to verify identity accessing financial services in America.
It feels as if I’ve scoured the depths of the internet (ever go down that rabbit hole?!) but nothing clear cut. I’ve read many go with Google Voice, other suggestions were iPlum, OpenPhone, Number Barn. The problem is majority are VoIP services, not many financial services will send the verification text to the voice over IP network. Such tricky business. Anyway, I think my brain is overloaded with content on this topic, reaching out to the lovely expat community here for any tips.
