You can verify your phone number using voice verification instead of text SMS verification to avoid all of the text SMS verification steps.
After entering your phone number you can choose"VOICE VERIFICATION" to verify your phone number
Open WhatsApp, it'll ask you to type in your phone number. It'll send you a text SMS to verify that is really your number. You have to type your real phone number here.
Wait for a while for the SMS message arrives to your own phone. The message will look like this.
From: 99999 Message: WhatsApp code 984
Now it is a tricky part to put this message into Android Virtual Device to verify your phone number. we need to open a session with the android console on port 5554:
to do so go to:
Start > cmd > right click and open as administrator
And type in console:
telnet localhost 5554
You should receive a message like:
Android console: type ‘help’ for a list of commands
Fake an SMS message into android virtual device by typing this
sms send the number from where you received the sms WhatsApp code the code you received
for the example above
sms send 99999 WhatsApp code 984
and press enter, you should receive a message Ok.
Go to your Android phone, you should receive a message from the mobile number you entered and in it WhatsApp code xxxxx
you’ll receive a WELCOME message on WhatsApp
REMEMBER that you should add your contacts in your virtual mobile
Two problems my arise :
"failed to create directory" while try to install android platform
To solve such problem, you must make sure you have writing permissions for that folder. Try starting the SDK Manager as Administrator.right click > run as administrator
"telnet is not recognized as an internal or external command operable program or batch file" when writing telnet localhost 5554 in cmd
To solve such problem, go to Control panel > Uninstall a program > Turn Windows Features on or off > check telnet client & telnet server.
