Question Not receiving text messages from web sites

Please Login to Remove!

A number of business web sites want some sort of confirmation by sending a text message to your cellphone. I give my cellphone number to such websites and then click their button to send a text message to my cellphone. Yet I never get such messages. The latest was my PayPal account, where it wanted to confirm my cellphone number by sending me a confirmation code in a text message to my cellphone. I went through the routine to get the confirmation code as a text message, and yet I never received the text message. However I have received text messages from other people who have my cellphone number, and have replied back by texting. But for some reason, so-called text messages sent by websites to my registered cellphone number I never receive.

Is there some difference between text messages sent from websites and text messages from ordinary users ? Is there some setting on my Torch 9810 that I must set in order to receive text messages sent from websites ?
