  • after 2 minutes: a computer voice call

SMS not received? Check if the number is written in the international number format (+112312345) and check if maybe an App (or even the mobile network operator) is blocking SMS from foreign countries. Remember that Telegram does not support VoIP numbers nor new landline numbers, so a real mobile number is required.

Changing phone number

You can change your number in Telegram and keep everything, including all your contacts, messages and media from the Telegram cloud, as well as all your Secret Chats on all devices. Your mutual contacts (people in your contacts, who also have your number) will get your new number added to your contact in their address book unless you have blocked them in Telegram. This makes changing numbers even easier. To change your number, go to Settings, then tap on your phone number (just above the username), then Change Number'. If you already have a different Telegram account on the target number, you'll need to delete that account first.
