Try:
1. Downloading the app to see if it will let you in to change / update it in the settings.
2. Log on via developer.paypal.com, go to paypal.com and change it in settings.
3. Use the forgotten password option several times.
4. Trying another browser that may let you in without phone verification (then change it when you have logged in).
5. Trying again another day when sometimes you can get in without doing the verification and then change the number.
6. Changing the password a few times sometimes works as it can bypass the phone verification.
7. Try clicking on P top of the forum page and see if you can log in via the forum.

If that does not work then you would need to contact customer services so that they can i.d. you another way and then add your new phone number to your account.

Contact options for Paypal are accessed by clicking help/contact bottom left of Paypal pages...

1. Paypal phones are slowly re-opening and increasing in numbers (you can use the guest option if you can't log in).
2. Live chat is also randomly available.
3. You can send them a message, during business hours you may also be able to message whilst logged out.
Or
4. Have you considered contacting Customer Service via Facebook or Twitter?
You can send them a personal message from their Facebook or Twitter pages.

I need to update my phone number as the old one does not exist anymore.  Now, anytime I want to enter into the Phone Update Section I hit the same obstacle.  It says: QUOTE "Have us a call you. We will show you a code on the next screen... unquote.  And here IT SHOWS my OLD Non-existing phone number.   In order to enter the place where I would be able to change the phone number it is offering me to send me a Code on my OLD phone number.

Please advise a working solution.

Paypal is country specific so if you move countries you have to open another paypal account in the country you reside in and add an address / phone number / bank accounts / cards from within that country.

You should really withdraw any funds / resolve issues / remove cards and bank accounts / cancel any subscriptions and close the old Paypal account before you move countries. If you don't then you may have problems doing so once you have moved and may need to contact customer services for help to resolve things.

Cannot access my account. I did reset my password and still got a message that paypal cannot verify who I am and I need to call them.

I cannot get through to anyone. I tried different phone numbers and all due to corona have no representatives. Any ideas how to proceed?
