Hello @JenikkaDianne 

Due to the fact that you do not have access to your old phone number, you will need to contact our phone support team. 

Please go to the PayPal home page and
1. Go to the Contact Us page: https://www.paypal.com - contact-us
2. Select Password and account access
3. Select Login problems

However, as a friendly reminder, if your phone number changes in the future, please update it in your account as soon as possible so that you do not have any problems logging in.

Thanks,
Kanth4

I have a new cell phone number since PayPal account was created.

Now after two factor authentication has been activated PayPal is trying to send me messages to the old number

which I do not use anymore and I can't login.

I tried calling PayPall help / support and gave up on talking to the machine.

If you go to the 'Help & Contact' icon on the PayPal website. Then if you click the 'Contact Us' link at the bottom of the page. From here, if you click the 'Password and Account Access' option, then 'Login Problems'. On the next page, you will see a 'Call Us' option. You do not need to be logged in to use this feature.

Hi @Briones06 

 

Thank you for the post. Welcome to this community.

 

I'd recommend reaching out to our Customer Support teams by clicking "Contact" at the bottom of any PayPal page for further assistance. You can contact them by visiting Contact Us > Password and Account Access > Login Issues.

I hope above information is helpful.

 

Renuka.

Hi! I can not log in to my account due to an outdated phone number. Since I live in Hungary, I don’t really want to call the US number just because it costs a lot per min. Is there any other way, or at least an email address? Thank you in advance, Krisztián
