  5. I'm an Account Owner on a Family SharePlan and need to assign this role to a different wireless number on my account. How do I do this?

    You won't be able to change the Account Owner through My Verizon. To do this, you'll need to call Customer Service at (800) 922-0204.

    Alternatively, you can assign an Account Manager through My Verizon, which can do almost everything the Account Owner can. To learn more about this, visit our Assign Account Manager FAQs.



  6. Can I switch devices with a different wireless number on my Family SharePlan account but keep the same number?

    Yes, you can. To do this online, refer to our instructions on the Activate / Switch Device FAQs. You can also contact Customer Service at (800) 922-0204 to have this done.



  7. If I'm on a Family SharePlan will I be penalized for going back to a single-line plan?

    No, you won't be penalized for going back to a single-line plan. However, please note the following:

    • If there are other lines on your account, you must also assign them to a single-line plan.
    • If any lines on your account are under contract and you cancel them, an early termination fee will apply.


  8. Can I upgrade my plan temporarily and then switch back to my current Family SharePlan?

    Yes, you can change the minutes, messaging and data allowances for your current Family SharePlan. However you won't be able to switch to an entirely different plan (e.g., The Verizon Plan) and then switch back to any Nationwide plan (e.g., Family SharePlan) because Nationwide plans have been discontinued. You can change your minutes, messaging and data allowances a maximum of 2 times per month.



  9. How do I cancel one of the lines on my Family SharePlan?

    To cancel a line, you'll need to contact Customer Service at (800) 922-0204.

    Note: When canceling a line that's still under contract, an early termination fee will apply.
