apple watch upgrade text message code


Trying to upgrade from watch 3 to 5. The watch is linked to my iphone & therefore uses  the same number as the iphone. The phone number for the watch account is different & when completing the upgrade process says it needs to send a text to that number for security reasons. Fair enough. Problem is that number is not a ‘real’ number i.e. you can’t call it etc. Does anyone know how to get through the upgrade process with this issue?
