About the Call Me Instead option toggle
Call Me Instead gives you another way to verify your phone number. Please use this option if you aren't able to receive the phone number verification code via text message.

When you tap Call Me Instead, you will receive an automated phone call that gives you a six-digit verification code. You can finish the verification process by entering that code into the LINE app.

Phone numbers that cannot be verified toggle
You need a device that can receive text messages or phone calls to verify your phone number.
Note: Even if your device meets these requirements, LINE accounts cannot be created or transferred with a virtual phone number.

If you cannot create or transfer an account with your preferred phone number, please use a Facebook account or a different phone number provided by a mobile service provider.
Note: If you register the same phone number to a different device, your previous LINE account will be deleted.
