PINs can take up to five minutes to arrive. If you’ve waited for a while and still haven’t received your PIN, it may be because GroupMe can’t send PINs to your cell phone carrier or internet phone service (like Google Voice). The good news is that GroupMe will work on these services once your phone number is verified.
To verify your number if you didn't receive a PIN:
- Keep the GroupMe app on the PIN screen. If you go through the registration process again, it will generate a new PIN, which could make things confusing.
- Shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know you’re having trouble receiving your PIN. Make sure to include your phone number!
- Once our team has helped you get your PIN, enter it in the app to verify your number.
That’s it! You can start your first GroupMe group today.
