The issue in GetHuman-donaldsk's own words
I am trying to set up a brand new iPad. It wants to send me a verification code by text (I don’t have a smartphone), or by telephone (I live in employee housing where no phones can be installed), or by email (my computer at work is nowhere near our only WiFi source where I can only use my iPad). I live and work at a very remote resort located in the middle of the Mohave desert. So what can I do to download a browser now? If you send me an email I won’t get it until tomorrow, but that won’t help me right now.
GetHuman-donaldsk did not yet indicate what AppleCare should do to make this right.
