Does anyone have a Lyft app on their phone and able to get an account?

Post by Clueless on Fri Sep 01, 2017 8:55 am

Id/l the Lyft app.

I was told to input a phone # to get the code to set up the account.

It won't take a US VOIP number (Skype) so I put in my Mx. cell #. But no code received.

Yes, I confirmed the Mx.cell # is working, but no code comes in.

Lyft has no live customer service and everything on their pages just takes me back to the same story.

And I did uninstall and reinstall the app.

Any help here?

Lyft only operates in the USA so it highly unlikely they would register a foreign client. You should probably wait "til you are in the USA and register then. Of course, did you provide the Mexico calling codes in front of your phone number?

That's probably it.

Thanks.

My husband tried to set up a Lyft account in preparation for an upcoming trip to Seattle. He entered his Telcel Mexican number properly (i.e., +52 1...) and never got a code. We're sticking with Uber.

I met a really nice couple visiting from Hawaii in front of SL last evening who were trying to get UBER for a ride back to their place in Ajijic. They were accustomed to using it on Maui and they raved about it. They checked the app and at 6 pm there were 7 UBER cars available with a 10 min ETA so they ordered a car. Got the driver's name, car description, photos, and ETA for him to get to SL. They just kept saying UBER rocks and how they loved being able to use it here too. Pretty cool. . .

I ended up using a phone number of a friend in California and she got the Lyft code and gave it to me. Set it up using Paypal to my CC and it's fine.

Since there is no Lyft Lakeside, I didn't put in my Mx. debit card info.

On my Uber account, I have both my NOB payment info and my Mx. so I don't get a FT fee.

I am going to try Uber for a trip to the Juan de Dios (or some such name) in Guadlajara one time just as a long-distance test.

My only concern with using someone else's NOB phone number is that Lyft will not have your cell number to contact you with information. Or maybe somehow they contact you using the app? Please do let us all know how you fare when you use Lyft.
