I am trying to enable keychain on my iPhone 4s. It initially asked me for my 4 digit security code. I entered my iPhone passcode and got a message saying 'Enter the verification code sent to "<country code> followed by 5 asterisks space 4 asterisks ending in the last two digits of my iPhone number"

Nothing has appeared in my messages. There is an option to click on 'Don't have access to this phone?' but, as I'm using the iPhone, that doesn't seem relevant.

Further back there was an option to use keychain from another device but I don't know how to do that. I've tried going to keychain access in Utilities on my iMac but the Apple ID listed is out of date! The iPad uses my wife's Apple ID as it's officially hers!!
