I have a question:

How do Telegram accounts work?
Do they work like whatsapp? Or you don't need a phone number to register in Telegram?

You do need a phone number. Though it would seem that unless you have that persons number somehow already in your contact list (and vice versa) you can't see their number (and they can't see yours).

No one else can see your phone number unless they're in your phone's contacts.

It's like using your email to sign up for Skype.

I meant to reply, too. It asks if I want to open Telegram, then takes me straight to the group.

Just to verify you're not creating a spam account, it's not shown unless the other person has your phone number on his

Huh? What's the problem? You might need to select your international prefix or write the whole number (+00 01 666666666), (+01 666666666), US (666666666) or something like that, I don't know how it works for Canada.

Yes! I had to add +54 to my phone number.

You must use international phone number.

I've done some research, try 00 1 902 ??? ???? if your number starts with 902 or whatever (I'm assuming you're in Nova Scotia)

Your international prefix should be 1, then 902 for nova scotia and then your number, the 00 is to dial an international number.

It should look something like this Image I think

Did that, too! Same thing. They just don't recognize the number for some reason =\

EDIT: Found out the reason why, but this is very strange ~ the system doesn't understand our house number. I'll have to fix this some other time.

Wait what do you mean your house number? You have to use a mobile phone number...

I don't have one. :|

And if that's the case, they don't exactly specify that you require one, either. they say it works with computers, phones and other devices.

Yes, not everyone needs (or wants) a smartphone. Age isn't any sort of indicator of one's needs or desires and to suggest something is wrong when an adult has made a conscious decision on their technology (or to outright put them down for it) seems neither respectful nor civil.

I'm not saying it's wrong or am putting him down for it, it's just not common and surprised me a bit.

GC, if you've solved the whole Argentinian number thingy do you see a screen like this?

Maybe they'll call that number.

Yes, you'd need to answer and they'd give you a code.
Can you not reach your own home phone? If not, you could try using a work phone or a friend's phone to register...

The best i can do in this scenario is use someone else's mobile number to confirm the code. As long as the only reason they are using it is for verification purposes. People are jumpy when it comes to giving out phone numbers online around here.

I'm probably going to go ahead and just ask for someone's number this Thursday to see what happens.

It's mostly a cybersecurity thing around here because the family is a bunch of 80's folks who don't trust computers. =P

But i'm going to see if i can find a way for this to work.

FINALLY

I'm in @_@

GameCobra tis my name :3

EDIT: Unfortunately i have to stop using Telegram. it keeps notifying the owner of the number i borrowed for my logins to Telegram, and even with the settings off, it keeps doing it. I also can't change the phone number for some reason on my desktop app, but it looks like it can be changed on the phone itself, which i can't do since he's at work. Trying to find a way around this, but I can't let the owner keep getting notifications from me at this point. i'll try to get this working some other way in the future.

Hey GameCobra, I'm not sure if this would work, but you can try using TextFree to get a free phone number that you could attach the Telegram account too. You just have to make sure you use the TextFree account like once every 30 days or something to keep it active. (Just like, have a small text conversation with one of your friends about the weather or something silly like that to keep the account active.)

I used TextFree back in like 2011 when I had friends in other countries that I wanted to text (you know, back before the widespread usage of smartphones and cheap data plans). I liked it a lot and it made for a good throwaway number when I needed one for things like this.

The site is here: https://textfree.us/

Let me know how it works out for you!

Got a number, but it doesn't seem to know what country it's from. Tried it as both USA and Canada.

In the US, our telephone area codes are typically tied into our zip codes.

That feature is really so you can select a number that sounds like it would be from your area, so your friends don't look at something like a (212) area code and think, "Who is texting me from New York?!"

Hmm, have you tried to include the country code? The US phone number would be formatted like:
+1 (XXX) XXX-XXXX

~

So how active is the Telegram group? Is Telegram similar to IRC or a Skype group message?
