trying to reset password on facebook.   tried forgot password and was told that a text would be sent from facebook with an activation code to reset facebook password.  Although my android phone can receive texts from any other source, for some unknown reason, when facebook announces that it is sending an activation code to my phone # , it is never received.  Is there any other way to solve this problem so I can reset my password in facebook even though it is on a new phone that was just purchased because the original phone was lost.  The Login phone number is still the same?
