I enter my phone number for the iPad i was given all other details entered but when i click it says sending me a code but its to a phone so i dont get a code help


If this is for retrieving a forgotten password or name, then you need to have saved your mobile phone number into the account when setting up and the code will be texted to that phone number for you to verify your account before you can reset password or name.

What is confirmation code


After you log in, you can verify your account by adding a mobile number to it. Enter your mobile number, starting with the country code (ex: 1 for US numbers). We'll send you a confirmation code as a text message. Enter this code into the space provided to verify your account.
You can also do this from your mobile settings.
Keep in mind that you can only use your mobile phone to verify one account. In addition, if you signed up with your phone number, your account is already verified.
If you just signed up and need to confirm your account, learn how to confirm your email address or phone number. If you're looking for info about authentic profiles and Pages, check out verified profiles and Pages.

How to open my cellphone in faebook


What you need to do is contact your local service provider (e.g mine was Mobilicity) and then tell them that you're having trouble receiving a confirmation code from Facebook. They should be able to fix the problem, because I received my confirmation code right after.

(By the way, you can only use your cell phone number once, because you're only supposed to have one account, according to Facebook)

You could also use the calling option, and have Facebook call you to send you the verification code.

DON'T use your home phone number for these options, because if you need to verify your account again, they will automatically text you with the number you gave them and tell you to type in the confirmation code
Step 1Go online to Facebook's Mobile page.
Step 2Type your email address and Facebook password into the corresponding text-fields and click "Login" to sign-in to your Facebook account.
Step 3Scroll down and click "Text a link to my phone." It may take up to five minutes to receive the text message from Facebook.
Step 4Type your Boost Mobile phone number into the text-field and click "Text link to my phone."
Step 5Open the SMS application on your Boost Mobile phone and open the text message sent to you by Facebook. Click the link provided in the text message. This link automatically directs your phone to download the Facebook application. Access the new application by going to your main apps menu and selecting the Facebook icon.
Get Facebook Mobile on Boost Standard Cellular Handset Step 1Go online to Facebook's Mobile download page.
Step 2Type your email address and password into the corresponding text-fields and click "Login" to sign-in to your Facebook account.
Step 3Scroll down and click "Sign Up for Facebook Text Messages."
Step 4Select "Boost Mobile" from the drop-down menu and click "Next."
Step 5Activate your Boost cellular handset, open your SMS application and select the option to create a new SMS.
Step 6Address the SMS to "32665" and type "F" in the message field. Click "Send." Wait a couple of minutes for a reply. The reply contains a confirmation code.
Step 7Type the confirmation code into text-field and click "Confirm."
Step 8Configure your Facebook Mobile settings according to your preferences. For instance, if you want to update your Facebook status with text messages, click the "ON" button bellow "Texts are." If you want to receive text messages of certain friends' status updates, type their name in the text-field beside "Whose status updates should go to my phone." Once you are finished, click "Save Preferences."
Step 9Update your status by typing it into a new text-message and addressing it to "32665."

Locked out of Facebook done it all and still THEY WONT LET ME IN


It's easy to get hacked on Facebook and lose access to your account. And getting it back can be a help-desk headache for some users.
All too often, users click links indiscriminately. They add friends they don't really know. They sign up for applications without knowing what they do. And most people use the same password for every website -- a dream come true for malicious users looking to steal your information.
To protect us, the mechanical bouncers in Facebook's system scan the site for unusual activity, and will suspend your account if they think your profile was breached by a malicious user. But the process to get it working again doesn't always go smoothly.

To protect us, the mechanical bouncers in Facebook's system scan the site for unusual activity, and will suspend your account if they think your profile was breached by a malicious user. But the process to get it working again doesn't always go smoothly.
For example, the system can suspend the account if it sees you're logging in from another country or from a device you don't typically use. As a security precaution, a user then has to verify their identity.
In most cases, it's an easy fix. Just type in a code that is texted to your phone or verify your birthday, and then change the password. But if there's a technical glitch within Facebook, some users can be blocked for months without being able to find help in fixing the problem. To make matters more frustrating, there's no way to reach a human by phone on Facebook.
Don Silver hasn't had access to his Facebook page for more than a month. He has two options to reactivate his account: get a special code texted to the phone number he registered with Facebook, or recognize five randomly chosen pictures from his Facebook friends.
The phone route didn't work. He hasn't received a text message code after repeated tries. And as the chief operating officer of public relations firm Boardroom Communications, he has Facebook friends he's met only once -- making it difficult to recognize some people.
``I have no idea who the guy is,'' Silver said as he looked at the first photo in Facebook's test. ``He's hugging a beautiful girl, but she's covering half his face.''
He sent repeated messages to Facebook's help team, but was told each time that they don't see a problem with his account.
And there's Marjorie Swensson of Kendall, who also hasn't been able to access Facebook in more than a month. She said the security verification asked for her birth date. Problem is, the Facebook website says her birth date is wrong. She's sent numerous messages to Facebook's help account, but has yet to get a response.
When told of Silver and Swensson's problems, Facebook responded with a general statement, saying it is ``constantly working to improve these systems to make the experience of confirming an identity and regaining access to an account as painless as possible.''
If you find yourself locked out of Facebook because of a technical glitch, enter a detailed message of the problem at facebook.com/help/?page=1024 and follow the appropriate link.
If you don't hear back, keep trying. I've seen numerous reports online of people getting their problem fixed after several months -- but they never got a notification message.
Facebook clearly has a serious customer-service issue. Having users go weeks without answers is unacceptable.
Let this be a reminder that although we depend heavily on Facebook for communication, it can be gone in a flash, like all other things in our digital lives.
But to avoid getting caught in a similar mess, practice safe surfing to avoid accidentally compromising your account. Use a different password for all sites, don't click on unknown applications, and don't click on links from odd-sounding messages.

Facebook has several features in place to limit the potential for spam and abuse on the site. Verifying your Facebook account helps you retain control of your account and applications on Facebook. There are two ways to verify your account. First, you can verify your cell phone, which allows us to verify that a real person is in control of the account. This process is explained here.

The second way to verify your account is to add a credit card to your account. You may do so here.

Unfortunately, if you cannot verify with a cell phone or add a credit card, you may be unable to verify your account. All developers must be verified before they can create a new application.
