As this is a Security Feature you may find these links helpful.

 

That or try a Samsung Experience Store  / Samsung Service Centre.

Thanks , But It ask me to login to disable it , and I do have the password so when I login it ask me for 2 step verification but I don't have access to the number as I told in my post earlier. So I'm stuck at that same screen to enter the verification code I would have received on my old number.

@iamdakool: I recommend getting in touch with the Samsung Accounts Team to see if they're able to change the active number on your account. You can reach them on 0800 995 1079. Let me know how you get on.

Thanks for the suggestion. I could certainly call them for assistance, what country code I should use as I'm based in United Arab Emirates and that number doesn't seem to work here.

@iamdakool: If you're based outside the EU then please contact Samsung Support in your region via the link below, where an advisor will be able to point you in the right direction.

Try logging into your account from your laptop or computer and setting it up from there. I did this and it was only then that they finally sent me a code.

Both my Google and my Samsung already had two step verification turned off when I switched phones today, still can't access this magical Cloud place that supposedly has all my data stored somewhere. Calles support, sat on hold for an hour with no indication as to the length of the que, gave up after an hour. Texted support. She said to call support. Overall, not helpful.

To anyone still having an access to their old phone number (SIM) but SMS verification code isn't coming, the following will fix the issue:

- To enable 2-step SMS verification with Samsung account, go to "Settings" -> "Lock Settings" -> deselect "Lock network and security".
