Hello i'm having trouble to login via new PSD2 Strong Customer Authentication  system, the issue is that the paypal for some reason has used my very very old phone number( long time ago before i even open ebay shop and linked to paypal) to send sms/code to.

Since then neither my paypal or phone has been that one, and i have as recently as few weeks recieved code on new phone number that was in the profile, for some reason paypal has defaulted to the old number and i can't no longer log in.

I can change password via email, enter my ebay linked shop , use my ebay linked phone etc, and people can send me money and what not but i can't log in on paypal my self, is there anyway to fix this or i have to wait for support to be on and call them?

tldr (old phone number when i created my acc many years ago has been switch to default number/send login sms verification), till recently i was using other number new one and have no idea how this happened and since i do not have old number/phone i can't log in ).

Thank you in advance.

I have never used my very old PayPal account but would like to now. However my account has a very old phone number and address but I can’t login to change it without a valid phone number. 
ive downloaded the app thinking that would be easier but it says tap the settings cog in the top right hand corner of the app to access. There us no settings cog! 
I then tried calling customer services and their phone is switched off! 
Help please
