Infinity Ward, a security net for Modern Warfare 2 cheaters, has asked every player to verify their identity by linking their phone number before they can play. This shouldn''t be too much of an issue for most players, although a percentage of users on Steam appear to be experiencing the same issue where they are required to verify their phone number despite previous attempts, and cannot proceed because Steam will not allow them to verify their phone numbers too often in a short time.
It''s a cruel issue for players who want to get stuck into the latest Call Of Duty action. Fortunately, there''s a fairly straightforward fix, which we''ll outline in this guide. Follow the steps below and you''ll be back to playing TDM and Prisoner Rescue in no time.
In Modern Warfare 2, how can we rectify the mobile phone verification problem?
After opening Modern Warfare 2, you''ll notice that if you''re one of the many Steam players who have been stuck on the "Mobile Phone Number Required" screen. Here''s how to get rid of the problem.
Then, simply click on the "Go To Steam Account" button and you''ll be prompted to enter a phone number (if your Steam account does not already have one) and then enter the required verification code. Steam will then enter the following information.
After that, close the Steam window and click on "I Already Added A Phone Number" to continue onto Modern Warfare 2.
Nevertheless, despite already doing so, you may be required to verify your number again, and Steam may not allow you to verify it, because you''ve already done so recently. If this is for you, here''s what you should do:
This isn''t the ideal scenario, but until this annoying issue for Steam users is resolved, this is the case. You may need to unlink your phone number from your Steam account several times during the Modern Warfare 2 beta, but it does not appear like the issue occurs every time you play the game.
