in recent days i have noticed google's phone verification service for adding double security to one's gmail account no longer has the "call my phone" as an option, this is a really useful option because often in circumstances where texts are not arriving the phone call still will. i say this as a uk user with a uk mobile phone and gmail setup to require the verification code on each and every time in log in, even on the same device. gmail's help sites don't seem to say anything and a quick web search for the last week, month or 24 hours shows nothing but one other person with a similar question on yahoo who hasn't got an answer.

texts over here sometimes work instantly but other times they don't get through at all. the voice call service was available as well as text in the uk atleast within the last month, i only use voice call when the text takes fails to arrive after a minute. last night i found myself trying to access one of my accounts and the text didn't arrive, i went to the option of "send voice message" and it was no longer there. eventually got in ten minutes later when i closed the browser, reopened and tried to log in again, the text arriving this second time. i'm just wondering what has happened to the voice option, does it still exist for you in whichever country you are in?
