Xunta de Galicia WiFi system problem

Camino(s) past & future
Via De La Plata
#1
Have an American phone, Google pixel. I cannot connect to the xunta wi-fi system in the albergues.
when I initiate the connection, I get a page that asks me to put in the phone number and a robot code. I do this successfully. I am supposed to get an SMS message with the code to access the Wi-Fi. But I never get the SMS message. I have tried the phone number with the plus sign, just the one, and with zero one. Never successful. Therefore I cannot use the Wi-Fi in the albergues. One person told me he has a Spanish SIM card and he was able to do it.

I believe that you need a Spanish phone number for that type of wifi system.

Try asking the person with the Spanish SIM card to ask for another SMS code, there is usually an option for " did not receive code" ,enter that SMS into your phone and it might work.

Enter phone number as 011+Area code+phone number, i.e. 0115551234.

I think this is how you would dial US from a European phone.

If 011 prefix doesn't work, try 001. It's been at least 10 years since I used a pay phone in Europe.

I found in early February that the code given worked for multiple devices. Likely against the rules. As there were only a handful of us and several folk were having issues it seemed to be the easiest solution. I was surprised to find that all the Xuntas seemed to be on the same network as I never needed another code in Galicia.

As mentioned by pjacobi it was some sequence involving country code and international dialing...good luck.

I don't know if applies in this case, but the usual convention on a mobile device is to omit the leading zeros and dial the "+" (plus sign) plus the actual digits of the country code; i.e. "+1" for the USA or "+34" for Spain, followed by the area/regional code then the individual phone number.

That's true.
Also if your mobile phone number when at home has "0" like over here 041-123-456 when in foreign country then you don't put that zero in. It should be (with Spanish country code) +34-41-123-456. maybe that's part of a problem with this Xunta wi-fi. I did connect to their wi-fi system in 2016 but it was with Spanish SIM and very easy procedure.

It worked for m in March this year on the Norte and I use a phone with a SIM card from Slovakia.
