Well, you are not the only one to face this issue. A lot of users have been complaining about the same issues with the Signal app on iOS and Android platforms.

Signal is a comparatively new platform, and before Musk asked the world to use it as an alternative, Signal platform had a lower number of users. And the platforms experienced a surge in registered users on Android and iOS platforms after Whatsapp changed its privacy policy to prepare users for the upcoming advertisements.

It looks, the creators of Signal were not prepared for that at all. Something like that happened with the Among Us too. A multiplayer game that got viral and had to put a lot of effort just to manage the number of online users.

This is the reason why a lot of users faced issues in receiving the verification code, as the servers of Signal weren’t supposed to manage a large number of users.
