Activation Text Not Arriving - Android


I’m trying to activate Monzo through the android app, however, when I enter my mobile phone, no verification text is sent… tried this a few times, using country code as well.

Hi @telson - feel free to send me a private message and I’ll look into it for you :slight_smile:


How do you send a PM? :smile:

press on simonb name in his message then press message then send once you’ve written it

I’m afraid you can’t yet :speak_no_evil:

you’ll need to become a ‘basic’ user first & these are the criteria -

(entering = opening, not creating)

in the meantime, I’m sure that if @simonb messages you, you’ll be able to reply.

Once you’re a level 1 user, the steps that Ian’s described will be available.

Hi @simonb, I’m having the same problem. Could you please advice on how can I activate my account?


I’ve got the same problem too…

Thanks for the heads-up on how to achieve Trust level 1 @alexs. I’ll do some browsing and PM Simonb in a bit…

I’ve reached out to everyone who posted on this thread and I believe it’s all been resolved.

might be easier to email with your problem to be sorted out

Hi Issy, did you get this resolved? I’m afraid I wasn’t working when you posted your initial message, so apologies for the delay!

(Issy Wright) #15

yeah it’s all good now

Hi guys, I’m also having the same issue and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

Since the average response time is under 5 minutes at the moment, the quickest way to get have the support team look into this is probably to message them via the in-app chat tool.

If by “in-app” you mean the mobile app - unfortunately I don’t have access to any features until I’ve activated my number.

(Alex Sherwood) #19

My bad, in that case you can email

Cool, I’ll give that a go - thanks
