Re: Second Sign in Verification SMS not working (2 step authentication)
- I'm pretty sure Yahoo doesn't support sending SMS texts to Google Voice. It's not on the list.
That said, I have AT&T and Yahoo doesn't send me SMS texts for two step authentication either. Yahoo says to check with AT&T and make sure they aren't blocking texts, but Yahoo is the only company that can't (or won't) send me text messages. Ironically Yahoo has no problems sending me SMS messages via the Yahoo Mail messenger interface. It only fails through the mobile phone verification page.

When you sign on using an unrecognized device you'll be given the option of having the verification code sent to one of your alternate email addresses.
