How Can You Change Your Verizon Wireless Phone Number?

One method for changing your Verizon Wireless mobile phone number is through the Change Mobile Number page of your My Verizon account, which allows you to select a number according to your area code. It is also possible to change your number by calling the customer service department, though this carries a $15 charge.

To change your number online, you must be the account owner or an account manager to log into the My Verizon account. Once on the site, choose the Change Mobile Number link from the list of account actions. If there are multiple numbers on the account, choose the line that you want to change, otherwise click Get A New Number. On this page, you must enter the ZIP code in which you live or choose a city and state from the drop-down menu, then select the relevant area code. You must also select an exchange number from the drop-down list, which is the first three numbers following the area code.

Verizon automatically assigns the final four digits of the number according to availability, then displays the final number for you to review. If the number suits your preferences, choose a date for the change to take effect and click the Submit button. The first online number change is free of charge, with additional changes or phone support changes incurring a fee.
