My cell phone is an old school flip phone. And I prefer to keep it.

Some of my accounts (Robin Hood being one) require that I'm able to receive an SMS message from them before they let me log into my account on my computer. My flip phone is not capable of receiving such message. I'm able to work around this issue, but its a bit of a pain.

There are some online sites that will sell me a phone number, which I can see on my computer, that is capable of receiving SMS message. None of these sites are from familiar names like ATT or Verizon. They are places like,, like that?

I know I might be the last person on the planet using a flip phone...but has anyone here ever bought one of these numbers and had luck with it?
