How can we improve the Outlook.com mobile webpage beta?

Email verification process doesn't work. Won't send verification code to number provided.

I want to verify my account but I am not receiving the verification code. Have tried every possible combination of the pre fix for the number to be sent to. Why can't I verify through another email account like previously allowed?

    I keep getting emails to verify my account but when I log in there’s not a way for me to verify my account. I can’t send or receive email and this is an issue

    The security obstacles make using outlook or hotmail accounts an absolute NIGHTMARE. I DO NOT RECOMMEND for business or pleasure. Waaaaaay too many code verifications. I just did 4, FOUR to login. Utter Ridiculous

    I'm having a problem verifying my device as I have no SIM / mobile number, using WIFI only. When trying to access emails via browser I'm unable to proceed beyond the verify page without a mobile number which I don't have. Would it be possible to have the choice to verify by email PIN, which was available for my Microsoft account after setting up an emergency email account ?

    My account is bound to a new phone number.
    After a one-month limit,
    New phone number verification is still required How to modify the login method into a mailbox login

    I constantly get Email verification notices. I get no code for use, why do I receive these notices on a daily basis. Please inform, thanks.

    Why must I validate with a phone number? Are you discriminating someone cant afford a phone?

    You keep harassing us while in the middle of sending an email to get our phone numbers every now and then. You have no respect for our time and privacy. We lost files because you did not send them or saved them in our drafts instead you harassed us asking for our phone number only after sending few emails.

    Llevó dos semanas esperando el código de verificación para recuperar una de mí cuenta de hotmail. Deberían de mejorar el servicio. Gracias

    I set up an account for my Son however it doesn't seem to send any message for verification purposes. Quite frustrating.
