87732 Telegram Code: How to Fix It?

Are you trying to verify your Telegram account but not getting the verification code from 87732 on your mobile device?

In this detailed guide, we’ll explain the reasons to you for getting this code and what to do if you fail to receive it.

Why did I get the 87732 Telegram code text?

87732 is the Telegram SMS number through which you get a five-digit verification code for authentication of your account. You’ll receive the code through this number when you are:

  • Signing up for a new Telegram account.
  • Logging in to your account from another device.
  • Changing the phone number in your Telegram account.
  • Ending the last session and singing in again.

Keep in mind that you will receive a different code each time, and it is only valid for one-time use only. 

WARNING: If you are getting the code even when you haven’t tried to log in to Telegram, someone else might be attempting to access your account. So, never share the code with anyone.

Why am I not getting the 87732 Telegram verification code?

  • Poor cellular signal strength. 
  • Corrupt Telegram data or installation files.
  • Invalid phone number.
  • Incorrect SMS settings.
  • Outdated Telegram app. 
  • Telegram server outages. 

How do I get the 87732 Telegram code?

Check the Signal Strength

You may not be in the coverage area of your cellular network, leading to poor signal reception.

Therefore, ensure that you have a strong and stable signal for your cellular network. For this, move to a location with better network reception, preferably in an open area, and verify the fix. 

Double-check the Phone Number

Telegram uses your phone number as a unique identifier for your account. However, if you’ve mistyped your contact number while signing in or registering your account, the platform will send the verification code to the wrong contact or won’t send it at all. 

To prevent this, make sure to carefully check the phone number you’ve entered during the authentication or verification process. If you find any errors, correct them and see if this fixes the issue.

Check the SMS Settings

It is possible that the SMS settings (message center number) on your mobile device are incorrect.

The best solution here is to re-configure the SMS settings on your mobile device this way to get the code from 87732:


  • Open “Messages.”
  • Tap the three dots or lines.
  • Tap “Settings.”
  • Select “More Settings.”
  • Select “Text Messages.”
  • Tap “Message Center.”
  • Enter the message center of your cellular network provider.
  • Tap “Done.”


  • Open “Phone.”
  • Type “**# 5005*7672*+85510200200#.”
  • Tap the “Call” icon.
  • Type in your cellular network message center and save it.

Afterward, request a new verification code from Telegram and check if you have received it now.

Update the Telegram App

An outdated Telegram app on your mobile device can be the reason you are not receiving this code on your phone.

Therefore, try updating the Telegram app on your mobile device with the steps given below and see if this helps:

  • Open “Play Store” or “App Store.”
  • Find “Telegram.”
  • Select  “Update.”

NOTE: An outdated app might also prevent Telegram from sending your messages. 

Clear Telegram Cache

If the Telegram cache data on your mobile device is corrupt, it may not process the verification or authentication correctly.

To prevent this, clear the Telegram cache data on your mobile device by following these steps:


  • Open “Settings.”
  • Tap “Apps.”
  • Select “All Apps.”
  • Select “Telegram.”
  • Tap “Storage.”
  • Select “Clear Cache.”
  • Tap “Clear Data.”
  • Select “OK.”


  • Open “Settings.”
  • Tap “General.”
  • Tap “iPhone Storage.”
  • Choose “Telegram.”
  • Choose “Offload App.”
  • Tap “Offload App” again.

Once you clear the Telegram cache through device settings, try logging in again and see if you receive the code now. 

Check Telegram Server

Sometimes, the internal server error due to overloaded Telegram service also prevents it from sending the verification code to your device or causes it to get stuck on “Connecting.”

Therefore, check the Telegram server status through a third-party server checking site. If other users have reported similar issues within the past 24 hours, Telegram might be facing downtime. 

Wait for the Telegram tech team to resolve the problem at their end and request the code later. 

Reinstall Telegram App

Still not receiving the code? Try reinstalling the app on your mobile device; doing so will remove any corrupt installation files that are preventing the app from sending you the verification code. Here’s how:


  • Tap and hold “Telegram” on your device’s Home screen or App Library.
  • Tap “Uninstall.”
  • Select “OK.”
  • Open “Play Store.”
  • Search for “Telegram.”
  • Tap “Install.”


  • Touch and hold “Telegram” on the Home screen.
  • Tap “Remove App.”
  • Tap “Delete App.”
  • Select “Delete App” or “Delete” to confirm.
  • Open “App Store.”
  • Locate “Telegram.”
  • Tap “GET.”

After reinstalling Telegram, open the app on your mobile device and check if you receive the verification code now while signing in or up to the platform.

Get the Code Via Call

If you still haven’t received the verification code from 87732, the platform will give you the option to get it via call.

To do this, simply tap “Call me to dictate the code” after the given time limit to receive a call from the app and get the code.

NOTE: If you’ve linked Telegram to the desktop app, the app will send the code to it. So, check the desktop app or tap “Send Code via SMS.”


In this guide, we’ve explored why you are not getting the 87732 Telegram code and how you can resolve this glitch ASAP.

If the problem persists, go to the “Telegram Support” page using a browser, fill out the online form, and click/tap “Submit.” Make sure to provide a complete description of your issue so the team can contact you back with a conclusive fix.
