I would like to know if someone knows of and if there is a way to bypass the phone verification? I want to add phones that are not withing my reach and I can not add them because they have to be verified.
Any feedback is appreciated!
Thank you

No way to avoid phone verification at present.

Google wants to make certain you DO have control of the device you're forwarding to.

I too would like to be able to bypass the phone verification piece.  We are using Google Docs in our school district and this is NOT a feature that will work with our students. There are several problems with this: (1) Many of our schools do not allow cell phones in the classroom, (2) not all students even have a cell phone, (3) even if they do have a cell phone, not all parents enable texting or they have to pay per text message.

I am also having the same issues at my school. Gdocs is a fantastic tool that I use extensively with my middle school students. But I am not about to ask them to enter their cell numbers. A work around is definitely needed.
