How to create a Telegram account

  • By Admin

Telegram is a cross-platform IM service that works on mobile devices and desktops. It is currently a free app, but in the future, Telegram plans to add premium subscriptions that give access to certain features, such as extra stickers. Telegram is especially known for handling privacy and providing e2ee encryption (when you use their secret chats) to its users. As you might have noticed, you can only sign up using your mobile phone number, which is odd, especially for a service generalized around privacy and security. So, how can I create a Telegram account without a phone number? There's an easy answer to that; SMSPool allows you to verify Telegram accounts with their Telegram SMS verifications priced at 0.20 dollar; find out how to register a Telegram account in less than 5 minutes!

Why am I not getting a Telegram SMS verification?

  • If you attempt to register a Telegram account on a desktop, try it on mobile.
  • If your device/IP is flagged for creating too many accounts, try another device or IP.
  • You have been ghost-banned for spam, or the IP is banned for spam.
  • The phone number does not correlate with your country; for example, a Russian phone number is less likely to work if you live in the US than a US phone number.
  • You downloaded Telegram from unofficial sources, make sure to download directly from Google Play or the App Store
  • You are using a rooted device, or something such as GrapheneOS which Telegram could block from registering accounts

Common issues for Telegram

  1. The code has been sent to another device 

    This usually means that you have been fingerprinted, meaning your device or IP is flagged. We suggest changing your device and IP and trying again with a different phone number.
