        You hold down the screen and at the bottom you’ll see like a loading thing. When it gets to the end it blocks the chat so no one can join. Click it to unblock

    I’m trying to verify my phone number on the app but it is saying that my number is not valid ( which I know it is valid). How can I fix this? I can’t add people without my contacts from my phone.
