Solutions To Paytm Verification Failed Something went wrong
Actually while verifying There Was An Error in Sending SMS in the Paytm App which cause this issue most of the time and sometimes the Paytm app has 2-3 issues which we have discussed below. Make sure you follow solutions one by one to get your issue solved.
1. Correct the Number & Linking
Make sure you have typed the correct number and it should be linked to the same bank. If you have recently linked it then it may take time to refresh your online status. You can visit your bank branch or contact them online to check if your number is linked to your bank account or not.
2. Date and time
This error is most common due to incorrect date and time so you only need to set the correct date and time. If you already have the correct date and time then skip this solution.
Open phone Settings ‘⚙’.
Search for Date and Time & Open it.
Turn on ‘Use network-provided time’ & ‘Use network-provided time zone’
3. Top-up Recharge:
Most of the time the problem is related to top-up. A low balance on your sim number can cause this problem. Thus to solve this issue firstly dial your balance check the USSD code and check your talk time balance or check your Plan validity. If it is low or your plan has expired then recharge with at least 10 Rs. In my case, it worked only once.
So my suggestion is that you should call your sim card customer care service which will definitely guide the minimum recharge plan that can activate your sim card validity and indirectly the SMS service of your sim. So I recharged with that and my SMS sending issue was solved.
So try recharging your sim card which can activate your SMS sending. After recharging check again if the messages are sending or not, if not then try the next solution.
4. Allow permission
