Caller ID and Caller ID Blocking

Caller ID allows you to see the caller's phone number before you take the call, and calls can usually be returned by pressing one button. Caller ID Blocking allows you to block your number from being displayed through Caller ID, and can either be done permanently or temporarily.

Share Name ID FAQs

[FAQs]

General Information
  1. What is Share Name ID?

    Share Name ID is a free service which allows you to customize the name that others will see on their screen when you call them.



  2. What's the difference between Share Name ID and Caller Name ID?

    If you have a compatible phone, Caller Name ID shows who's calling you by displaying the name, phone number, city and state assigned to the caller's phone number. If the caller assigned a picture, you'll also see the picture.

    Share Name ID allows you to customize the name that others will see on their screen when you call them.
     

    We don t pre-screen any caller s name for this service. To use these services, you must represent and warrant to us that the information you provide is accurate, not intended to offend, impersonate, misinform or mislead others, and doesn t infringe or violate someone else s rights or the law, rules or regulations with regard to privacy, intellectual property or otherwise.



  3. How much does Share Name ID cost?
    Share Name ID is a free service.


  4. How do I sign up for Share Name ID?

    You can add Share Name ID if you're the Account Owner or Account Manager. Learn more about account access roles.

    To add Share Name ID:

    1. Go to the Change Features page in My Verizon.
    2. Scroll down to locate Share Name ID.
    3. Click Add next to Share Name ID.
    4. Click Next at the bottom of the page.
    5. Select a day for the feature to take effect.
    6. Click Next.
    7. Review the changes and click Submit.

      Note: If you've had Caller ID Blocking on your account, it will be removed when you add Share Name ID.

    8. A Confirmation pop-up will display. Click Close when finished.


    You've successfully added Share Name ID.



  5. How do I change my Share Name ID?

    The Account Owner or an Account Manager can manage Share Name ID. Learn more about account access roles.

    To edit your Share Name ID in My Verizon:

    1. Go to the Share Name ID page in My Verizon.
    2. Select one of the options listed.

      Note: If you want to create a custom name, select the option with the Enter Name field and enter the name you wish to display on outgoing calls.

    3. Click Submit.
    4. Click OK in the pop-up window.


    You've successfully updated Share Name ID in My Verizon.

    To edit your Share Name ID in My Verizon Mobile:

    1. Under Profile, tap Edit Share Name ID.
    2. Tap Customize Name.
    3. Enter the name you wish to display on outgoing calls.
    4. Tap Submit.


    You've updated Share Name ID in My Verizon Mobile.



  6. When I use Share Name ID, will my name show up on all phones for outgoing calls?

    No, your Share Name ID will appear if:

    • The phone you're calling is compatible with Caller Name ID
    • The phone you're calling has Caller Name ID service turned on
    • The person you're calling hasn't saved your number as a contact


    Verizon Wireless can't guarantee your Share Name ID will appear on all outgoing calls.



  7. I added Share Name ID and the wrong name or no name is showing up when I call someone other than a Verizon Wireless customer. What should I do?

    When you call someone with Caller Name service, it's the service provider (not Verizon Wireless) that displays the name of the caller. If your name is displaying incorrectly then the person you're calling should contact the service provider to report the issue.

    We can also assist in resolving the issue with the other service provider. Contact us with the number of the person you're calling and the wrong name that's displaying. From your Verizon Wireless phone, call *611 to reach Customer Service or call (800) 922-0204 from any phone.



  8. If I have Share Name ID, can I block my name on select calls?

    Yes. If you don't want your name to appear, you can block it by entering *67 before the 10-digit number you're calling. When you do this, "Restricted" will display on the screen of the phone you're calling instead of your Share Name ID.

    Note: When blocking your name for a call, you must enter the full 10-digit number to place your call.



  9. I have multiple mobile numbers on the same account. Can I use Share Name ID to specify a different name for each line?

    Yes, you have the option of specifying a different name for each line.



  10. Can I change my Share Name ID after I set it up in My Verizon or My Verizon Mobile?

    Yes, you can change your Share Name ID to a different name through My Verizon or My Verizon Mobile.



  11. Do I have to select a name for my Share Name ID?
    No, the billing name on your account is set as the default but you can customize a name for each line on your account.


  12. Are there any limits to what I use for my Share Name ID?

    Yes, your Share Name ID:

    • Can have up to 15 characters
    • Must include at least one letter
    • Can include numbers
    • Can't start with a space
    • Can include an apostrophe, hyphen, comma, ampersand (&) and the "at" (@) symbol


    Note: No other special symbols are accepted for Share Name ID.



  13. When I make changes to my Share Name ID, how long does it take for the changes to take effect?

    It can take up to 24 hours for a Share Name ID change to take effect.



  14. What is Caller Name ID spoofing?

    Apps offered by third parties that are not affiliated with Verizon offer the ability to manipulate or "spoof" the Share Name ID that appears to the person receiving your call. We don't pre-screen the third party apps that you download. You should review any applicable third party terms and conditions before subscribing to or using such services.



  15. Should I be aware of any liability issues with Share Name ID or Caller Name ID and spoofing?

    We have the right to refuse to pass or to remove any Share Name ID or Caller Name ID information and to investigate reports of misuse, abuse or other violations. Such violations may result in your service being limited, suspended or terminated for cause. Submitting misleading or inaccurate information to us or a third party provider, or misuse of your mobile device, with the intent to defraud, cause harm or wrongfully obtain anything of value may also subject you to civil and criminal penalties.



  16. How do I cancel Share Name ID?

    To cancel Share Name ID:

    2. Scroll down to locate Share Name ID.
    3. Click Remove next to Share Name ID.
    4. Click Next at the bottom of the page.
