Unable to bypass 2 step verification

  1. This question pertains to our blog at not this account, I had to create a new account so I could post this.

    On April 23 I enabled 2 step verification on our blog but accidentally deleted the Authenticator app from my iPad which has prevented me from accessing our WordPress account since.

    I realised what I had done straight away and submitted the 'Account Recovery Form' on the same day (April 23) with full details, including a Transaction ID. I requested for the 2 step verification to be lifted so I could gain access to the account again.

    Can anyone confirm what the normal time-scale for requests of this nature to be completed are, and even if it's possible for 2 step verification to be deactivated in this way ,or is the account lost?

    Many thanks

    In the meantime I've had a reply back from a 'WordPress Happiness Engineer' stating that I can reset the password, but I already have a working password it's the 2nd step of the verification process that I can't get past.

    Really hoping a Mod or staff member can take a second to have a look at this problem, even if it means the account isn't recoverable then I can at least start to develop an alternative blog instead.
