I have run into a strange issue and a search of these forums hasn't helped. Rolled back from iOS 11 beta to 10.3.3 on both my iPhone 7 and iPad Pro (10.5). Now, I cannot get the code to have all messages forwarded and appear on my iPad. I have tried every combination I could find on the net to resolve this but nothing works. I simply cann't get a code on my iPad to put into my phone. Could this have something to do with two factor authentication?

I consider myself pretty tech savvy but I am at a total loss.

Anyone run into this issue and able to resolve it? I know it's kinda a first world issue, but I have actually come to rely on it to not have to have my phone on me all the time.

Any help welcome and would be eternally grateful.

Any luck with this? I downgraded back to 10.3.2 and I still can't get the code to pop up.

No issues with my iPhone and iPad on 10.3.3 and my Macs on 10.12.5. I have not gotten the code in months now when enabling SMS forwarding on a new device. Same with enabling WiFi calling. Whenever I flip the toggle, it just works.

Do you have two factor authentication turned on?

I stopped getting the code long after I had 2FA enabled. Codes stopped around February or March, but 2FA was enabled before I got my 7Plus.
Apple needs to figure this out man. I dont get the code on my work and personal mac's. They are on diff WIFI networks and my phone is back on 10.3.2, one mac is on beta 10.12.6 while the other one is on 10.12.5. I cant figure it out. I've tried everything from logging out to changing the icloud password to rebooting to resetting settings on my iphone

But do you need the code? Are you saying that without the code, you are not getting SMS messages to forward?

That didn't really answer my question. Have you verified SMS forwarding is not working, just by toggling it on and not doing anything about a code.
when I toggle it on a box appears on my iphone requesting the code, I either enter it in or hit cancel

Have you tried enabling 2FA, activating SMS forwarding, then disabling 2FA? I'm fairly certain 2FA is going to be required with iOS 11/macOS 10.13, based on how so many features require it.

Oh okay. You said same to OP so I figured your situation was the same. Maybe 10.3.3 has underlying code that requires 2FA and because it has to been publicly released yet, it hasn't been announced.
Yeah im thinking the same thing, nothing else would explain what is happening man

Have you called them or chatted with them? Typically you can get to the engineers faster than just a report.
Yes I called them and we troubleshooted a bunch of generic crap and then they told me to try setting it up on another WIFI network and thats when I just gave up, im sick of the grandma answers that they give you to do. I am a network admin there is nothing wrong with my home network

They did and I was going back n forth with a guy who was in contact with the engineers and when they told me to try another network i just gave up. It's BS, I dont even think they know whats going on.
