Questions and Answers

Invalid phone number when setting up Telegram?

Invalid phone number when setting up Telegram. I have tried: When I'm entering my phone number it says: Invalid phone number

Any virtual or VoIP numbers are not supported in Telegram (for example, Republic or Google Voice numbers should not be used during registration). Use the number on your SIM card. Just in case, make sure that your phone number is correct when entering it (a plus sign with a country code that you select by tapping on the country drop-down menu and no extra preceding zeroes or eights).
