2 step authentication

When I login to Pay Pal I am offered 2 stage verification by sending me a text or having Pay Pal call to give me a code.  I have tried using the text option but this does not work.  Receiving a call works but I would prefer the text option.  Looking at the solution in the help section I get the following instruction.

  1. Go to the Your Profile page.
  2. In the "2-step verification" section, click Update.
  3. Choose how you want to receive the code, then click Set It Up.

I do NOT have a 2 step verification section in my profile.

Any ideas how I can overcome this annoying situation.
