Hello nisafromedgware,

Congratulations on your new iPhone! It's my understanding that you're unable to verify your Apple ID because you don't have access to the trusted phone number. You've come to the right place! I'm happy to help.

Use the steps below to update your trusted number:

Keep your trusted phone numbers up to date

To use two-factor authentication, you need at least one trusted phone number on file where you can receive verification codes. You can update your trusted phone numbers when you follow these steps:

  1. Go to your Apple ID account page.
  2. Sign in with your Apple ID.
  3. Go to the Security section and click Edit.

If you want to add a phone number, click Add a Trusted Phone Number and enter the phone number. Choose to verify the number with a text message or automated phone call, and click Continue. To remove a trusted phone number, click User uploaded file next to the phone number you want to remove.
