Phone number linked to another account?

Postby JuviaRain » Thu Jan 28, 2016 11:10 am

Trying to update my phone number, but I get the error message, "This phone number is linked to another LDS account and cannot be used." I don't know who used this phone number last, and I think it may still be linked to the previous owner (whoever that is). Any ideas on how I can get this solved? And no, I don't have another number I can use for this. Thanks for any input!
