Thanks ediflyer and Petr
Have spoken with Curve (on the first day) who advised I do all the usual things (remove app, reinstall fresh app, reboot iPhone) and try again!
Same result every time. Log in successfully and then asked for mobile number for verification text. Despite several attempts no verification text sent/received.
Tried again a number of times yesterday. same (non) result😱
Call into Curve to activate Curve for Apple Pay but went to voice mail. Message left for call back - nothing heard!
Tried again this morning, logged in via Magic Link, all OK until having entered mobile number for verification code.- no code received! Even tried resend but same result!
This is now getting very frustrating…
