I have four devices (one iMac running OS X, 10.9.1, two iPads and one iPhone).  The iPhone is no longer operative as a cell phone.  I had the service switched to a land line, which does not have texting capability.  I have previously set up my iCloud account.  Whenever I open either iPad, I get a message that my iPhone is still pending approval on iCloud and after entering my four digest security code, I get a message to input the Verification Code which has been sent to what was previously my cell number and is now my land line.  Obviously, I will never receive the text message containing the Verification Code.  Is there a work around for this situation?

I suppose you could try using it without sms verification as explained at the bottom of this article: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT6020.  You may have to turn it off on all your devices and start over to do this.  Don't really know as I don't use it myself.

You're welcome.  I find iCloud syncing works well with all my devices, but avoid using iCloud keychain.  If you want to secure passwords, I think the 1Password app is a better solution.
