GetHuman-goldnbla's next move: find and follow the right step-by-step guide.
Facebook doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-goldnbla will need to dig through the advice provided by Facebook, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman-goldnbla can let us know if they help or not.
If you don't see a guide here that matches the problem you are having, please see if Facebook has better answers for you: Facebook Help Center
If time is of the essence or you are lost, we partner with a BBB-accredited US-based company that has live experts you can chat with about issues like this for roughly $20-45. Chat now with an expert.

The issue in GetHuman-goldnbla's own words
Help! Locked out of account and unable to reset it, because I no longer have access to text*sms messages (no longer have phone). Alternate email address entered in* doesn't fix problem.**Details:*I'm unable to log into my Facebook account, because I no longer have access to the phone**ability to receive text messages with which I registered, earlier. I still have the phone number with which I registered's sim card, and the phone account is still active, but I don't presently have a mobile phone to go with it, and it'll be a while before I'll get one. Therefore, I can receive voicemail using the Internet to indirectly access my phone * account's password-protected voicemail, but it is ***% impossible for me to get a text message at this time, until my budget allows, which could be a matter of a month or two, in a worse case scenario. Yet you guys won't let me log into Facebook until I enter in an sms text message code, no matter what I do (I have NOT set up two-stage-verification--rather, this SMS thing is something you guys have suddenly insisted upon, out of the blue). I've tried every help option for changing the password, entering in my alternate email address and everything the help page listed, but all to no avail--I keep getting stuck on the "enter sms text code" screen, no matter what I do. Please fix this! It may be strange*unusual to go for a couple of months without an expensive smartphone replacement, but I shouldn't be locked out of facebook over it. Thanks! I should be able to provide whatever verification info you need* just let me know. Please respond ASAP. Thanks again. -Jason Kozuback
