"Let's verify it's you..." issues when setting up account on new device
I've had an sbcglobal.net account for nearly 25 years. A while back I tried to set up my sbcglobal email on a new device (I had to transfer my number away from AT&T for work requirements). After entering my username and password I get a screen asking me to select an AT&T phone number to send a verification text to. The numbers of other devices in my household are still there (since those phones are still on AT&T), but I can't keep asking those people to give me the verification number. Is there any way at all that this "feature" can be removed or altered so it sends the verification number to my original (now non-AT&T) phone number? Yahoo mail accounts are free, so I don't understand why I need to have an AT&T phone number to use one.
