Verification SMS

I'm trying to login to paypal (I tried on my phone and on desktop). My mobile verification code has never worked (literally for years) even though I've had the same number for 20 years, but in the past I've been able to skip it and access my account. As of today, there's no option to skip the verification sms code and therefore I can't login to my account!

Re: Verification SMS

Additional question, it is no other way possible than to reach out to phone support? Because PayPals Swedish customer service has closed their phone line and I see many people who happen to have the issue of verify their phone due old number or similar, doesn't seem to get contact with PayPal. It is simply just to wait until their phone opens, which no idea how long that would be about? It's weird there's no other solution meanwhile.
