Forgot to top up my Revolut, so when Netflix tried to take money it failed. My Netflix was locked out, and adding my Revolut card number back in, or trying to add Irish card back in didn't work. I managed to fix by following these steps:
  1. Cancel account. Because it was locked due to a failed payment, this was immediate.
  2. Connect to netflix using a VPN/etc to be through Turkey
  3. Sign in
  4. Netflix will ask you to confirm account type, pick the one you want
  5. It will ask you to confirm the card details you want to use, but won't ask you to re-enter details.

So this will work if you forget to top up revolut. As far as I can tell this will not work if you need to change the card number/details (e.g. if your card expires).

alternately if you do forget to top up revolut and the payment fails, Netflix tries again a day or two later so you can just top up and wait for the payment to be taken again.

How does everyone get around the part where they want to text you? Can only enter a phone number from the country

Sign up for account in Ireland, add all payment details/etc and use it for first month. Cancel it immediately, then when the month is over sign up to Turkish Netflix.

Tip: search/read this thread. This has been stated multiple times...

Couldn't sign up through Turkey no matter what VPN I tried so got it via Brazilian VPN. For anyone interested and doesn't want the read back for a few hours..

VPN Brazil

Sign up and enter bank details for Revolut card etc..

They'll ask for a phone number, go to smspva.com and get a virtual Brazilian phone number it costs .50c.

Netflix text the code to that number, input the code when asked.

Done.

You can now use your Irish number as recovery phone number.

€8.15 for Brazilian Netflix.

Or read the last 2/3 pages where this is raised again and again? Or use that handy search option up the top?

Open to correction but I believe to avoid the new verification methods:

1) Sign up to a Netflix Ireland account, verify using your Irish details and ideally Revolut or a card that you won't change later on.
2) Cancel your subscription and let the account lapse
3) Activate a VPN connection to the country you want to sign up with (eg Turkey)
4) Re-start your subscription by purchasing a plan, it should appear as local currency and not Euro.

You can try to sign up for a brand new account via a VPN to Netflix Turkey, but I believe they will now ask for a local number or bank account to verify you are from Turkey, hence the trick to create an Irish account first.
I signed up at the end of last month with payment made with my AIB debit card. Didn't know about this at the time. I do have Revolut but would there be any problem using my AIB debit card going forward?

There’s no issue using an AIB card, you just get it slightly cheaper on Revolut
