Well, there are numerous assumptions concerning the matter. The most possible assumption is that an account might have already been added to another account, or the number is not valid or meets the requirements. And the other assumption behind this, as understood by numerous players is, if anyone uses a pre-paid or VOIP SIM card for their mobile phones, Blizzard Entertainment’s new SMS Protect service is unable to detect those numbers, as a result players are facing this error.
There have been various methods to solve the issue. The techniques or methods have been discussed further:
- An individual needs to open the Battle.Net launcher or the site from your web browser and make sure that a mobile number is already added.
- If a mobile number is added to it, starting from October 7, one will have nothing to worry about. Since Blizzard is updating their SMS Protect system, only new players will be required to add their phone numbers to their Blizzard accounts. If the person is an existing player, he/she should not be dealing with this error from October 7 onwards.
- If an individual is still facing the same issue, he/she can try changing their mobile recharge plan to post-paid from pre-paid, and they might not be receiving the error anymore.
- However, if none of the above methods fixes the issue, then it’s advisory to contact Blizzard’s customer service to check why Blizzard is not receiving the phone number.
