I have been loged out of my facebook for a while. It all started when I imported some contacts from my old Yahoo mail.

They locked my account and I now have to verify it, I tried this they send me a SMS (sometimes), but when I enter it nothing happens, if I try again I get a error.

This is the message I see:

For security reasons your account is temporarily locked If this account reflects your real name and personal information, please help us verify it.

And when I press next

Enter confirmation code A code was sent to your following number: REMOVED

Once you've received your confirmation code, please enter it below. This will help confirm your account ownership.

Resend code

What do I, do? I have tried Google but I found nothing that helps, I can resend the code and I tried that but it does not work.

The error I get on second try is:

The security code you entered is incorrect or expired. Please try having the code sent to you again.

If you need more information, let me know.

You will have to contact Facebook with this problem. Try this form to report an issue with SMS verification.

  • Thanks, I did it and got this message "Thanks for contacting Facebook. You should receive an email response shortly." I'll report back if this fixes my problem. Apr 16, 2012 at 4:41
