Verizon StarStar Me FAQs


General Information
  1. What is StarStar Me?
    StarStar Me is an add-on mobile service that lets you use your name or nickname, when available, as your number. People can call you from their mobile phones by simply entering * * and then a unique word or phrase that you choose. When meeting new people, give out your memorable StarStar number instead of ten hard-to-remember digits.

  2. What does the StarStar Me app do?
    The StarStar Me app helps you manage your incoming calls on your Android™ Smartphone or iPhone®. Within the app, you can:

    • Set your phone to not ring and send incoming calls straight to voice mail when you are unavailable to receive calls

    • Automatically reply to calls with a custom text message to let callers know that you aren’t currently available (e.g., “I’m in a meeting,” “I’m driving,” “I’m in class,” “I’m on a plane,” etc.)

    • Reply to calls with a link to a mobile web page with your contact info, including links to important social media accounts

    • Choose to block specific callers from reaching you

  16. What happens to my StarStar number if I cancel it?

  17. How do I cancel my StarStar Me service?

  18. If I change carriers, can I transfer or “port” my StarStar number?
    Your StarStar number cannot be transferred or “ported” from carrier to carrier the way your regular phone number can. When you change carriers, your number will be returned to the pool of available StarStar numbers. However, you can request the same number again if your new carrier supports the service.

  19. Can I sign up for a StarStar number if I have a prepaid account?
    No, the service is not currently available for prepaid accounts.

  20. Can I send text messages (SMS) from my StarStar number?
    No, at this time you can’t send text messages from your StarStar number. However, the StarStar Me app will send a text message to callers of your StarStar number, when you choose the reply with message or contact info options. You can customize the text message and contact info that is sent.

  22. Are calls to my StarStar number billed like normal calls?

  24. Is there a way to reactivate a StarStar number that I canceled?
    You can’t reactivate a StarStar number that you’ve canceled. Approximately five days after your bill cylce ends, the number will become available for purchase again. If you would like to repurchase that same StarStar number, you can do so at that time. However, there’s a possibility that someone else may purchase it first.

    You can find the end date of your bill cycle on the Account page of our StarStar Me website.

  25. Can a StarStar number forward to a number other than my mobile phone?
    No, calls to your StarStar number can only be sent to your mobile phone.

  1. I’m having trouble signing up for StarStar Me. Why?
    If you’re having trouble signing up for StarStar Me, you may not have authority to add services to your account. You must be an Account Owner or Account Manager to sign up for this service. Learn more about My Verizon account roles.

    If you are the Account Owner or Account Manager, or if you are unsure of your account role, and you are still having trouble signing up for StarStar Me, please call Verizon Customer Service by dialing 611 on your mobile phone.

  2. Sometimes when I dial someone’s StarStar number, it doesn’t connect. Why?

    You may be having difficulty connecting to a StarStar number for one of the following reasons:

    • Roaming – StarStar numbers can only be connected if you place the call on the network of a carrier that supports the StarStar Me service, such as Verizon Wireless. If you’re roaming on another carrier’s network, you may have to dial the full ten digit number.

    • Using a Network Extender – You may experience problems connecting to StarStar numbers if you’re using a Verizon Wireless Network Extender.

    • Traveling internationally – You can’t dial a StarStar number if you’re traveling outside the US. However, callers in the US can reach you by dialing your StarStar number, even if you’re overseas (provided you have global service).

    If you’re still experiencing difficulty connecting, you can call Verizon Customer Service by dialing 611 from your mobile phone.

  3. Why does my phone lock up sometimes when dialing the StarStar (**) portion of a StarStar number?
    On some phones, if you push StarStar (**) too quickly or too slowly, it invokes a special function of a “pause” or “+”.

    • If you’re dialing ** too quickly – You may need to wait longer before pressing the * (asterisk) key the second time. After pressing the * key, try waiting a second before pressing it again.

    • If you’re dialing ** too slowly – You may be pressing and holding the *(asterisk) key too long between pushes, which triggers this special function. Try lifting your finger off the key quicker after you press it.

  4. When I dial a StarStar number, it says it sent me a text message but I never received it. What happened?
    To receive text messages from a StarStar number you call, you must have texting enabled on your phone’s account. You also need to make sure you don’t have any blocks applied.
