Edited by Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to add a phone number to a Facebook account on a Microsoft Lumia 535.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on the right-hand side of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen upwards.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen.
Now, we need to find the Facebook tile. It has a blue background, and in the bottom right-hand corner of the tile, there is the Facebook icon, which is a white square with a blue "f" on inside.
Press down on that tile, and it will allow us to enter the application.
We now need to use the icon at the far right side of the screen and in the white bar at the top. There are three gray horizontal lines.
Press down on those lines to open up the "More" menu.
Next, we need the "Settings" option, so press down on that word.
On the "Settings" menu, we want the first option at the top that says, "Privacy settings".
On the next menu, we want the first option that says "General", so press down on that section.
Once that menu loads, we want the option that says, "Phone".
Next, we want the option at the top of the screen that says, "Set Up Facebook Texts". Press down on that bar.
What we want to do on the next screen is enter our "Phone Number". It says, "What's Your Phone Number? Only you will see this on your profile."
Press down on the text box to bring up the keyboard. Then enter a phone number.
Once we've entered our phone number, we can press down on the green box that says "Continue".
Now, at the top of the screen, it shows that we've received a confirmation code.
Therefore, we need to swipe down the Notification panel from the top of the screen.
On the Notification panel, we'll see a message with a code. It will be different than the one in this example, so be sure to write it down.
Now, we'll swipe the Notification panel back up to go back to where we were before.
Now, press down on the text box to bring up the keyboard.
Enter the confirmation code we've just received from Facebook.
Then press down on the blue bar where it says "Confirm".
When it is finished confirming the information, at the top of the screen will show a message from Facebook stating that the number has been added to our account.
The screen now says, "Text Messaging On. Your phone number has been added to your account. Now, Facebook will text your notifications to you. To change this or update your phone number, visit settings." If we want to make any changes or turn off this option, we can go to the settings to do that.
This concludes our tutorial on how to add a phone number to a Facebook account on a Microsoft Lumia 535.
