Any 2FA SMS work now?

It seems some people have 2FA working.

 

I just tried google, twitter and amazon. None work on my side.

 

Amazon kinda works but it takes forever because the server waits a while before retrying with a long source number.

 

I wouldn't say this is working.

amazon does not use short code sms so it doesn't count.

I assume we would get an official announcement if/when this is finally resolved fully.

It does not work for Capital One

I still have not received any message from any short code, that includes the banks. I have seen people say that they had some success with TD, but I haven't.

TD bank has been working fine for a month or so now.

I've used 2FA with few companies lately (eg. GoDaddy, Hotmail, Ebay, gmail) they all worked fine, however text message with code was sent from a regular (long form) number. At the same time, I have alerts setup with my bank, which usually come from short numbers and they still don't work. I guess if 2FA uses long numbers they should work, but if short numbers then you run into a problem.
