  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.



  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.



Nationwide 65 Plus Plans (no longer available for new activations)

    Visit our Nationwide 65 Plus Plans information page for details on pricing, messaging packages, data options and overage charges.



  3. Am I required to sign a long-term contract to subscribe to the Nationwide 65 Plus Plan?

    No, you're not required to sign a long-term contract for this plan if you activate a phone you already have that's compatible with our network or you buy a phone from us at its retail cost. However, if you purchase a phone at a discount from us, you'll be required to sign a 2-year contract.



  4. Are there any special age restrictions to the Nationwide 65 Plus Plan?

    Yes, the Account Owner must be 65 or older to qualify for this plan.



  5. Why is there an age restriction for the Nationwide 65 Plus Plan?

We reduced the anytime and weekend minutes based on customers 65 and over requests for a lower priced plan while still maintaining unlimited Mobile to Mobile calling.

    If you're not on a Nationwide plan, you can switch to The Verizon Plan, which offers unlimited calling, messaging and shared data.



  5. How do I add numbers to my Friends & Family list?

    To add numbers to your Friends & Family list:

    1. Go to the Friends & Family page in My Verizon.

      Note: Account Members may view the list, but they may not edit the list.

Customers on Nationwide Family SharePlans with 1400 Anytime minutes or more can choose up to 10 Friends & Family numbers for the entire account. Each line doesn't get its own separate list of Friends & Family numbers.



  7. Can I add numbers that aren't Verizon Wireless numbers to my Friends & Family list?

    Yes, with Friends & Family you can choose anyone, on any network in the US, to call without ever using your plan minutes. You can also change who is on your Friends & Family list at anytime by going to the Manage My Friends & Family page in My Verizon.



  8. When do changes to Friends & Family become effective?
