Frequently asked questions
What is NumberShare?
NumberShare is a service that lets you use your mobile number on up to 5 connected devices. Send and receive calls and messages on whatever device is at hand, even if you're away from your phone.
Your smartphone's mobile number is the "host" and shares your number with your authorized "extension" devices. Although each extension device has its own mobile number, NumberShare lets you share your smartphone's number with all extensions. Both numbers work on your extension devices and will appear on your Verizon Wireless bill.
Now you can talk and text, get emails and notifications* using the new Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch on the Verizon Wireless network.
* Not all features available with all host devices. For use with Android® and iOS smartphones only.
Get the new Apple® Watch Series 3 on America’s most reliable network.
Note: Apple Watch Series 3 requires an iPhone® 6 or later with iOS 11 or later. Both devices must be on the same Verizon Wireless account.
Which plans support NumberShare, and what does it cost?
In order to share a number with NumberShare, all of your devices must be on the same Verizon Wireless standard monthly plan, like the new Verizon Plan. NumberShare uses your shared monthly data allowance to sync your devices.
There's no extra charge for the host device. The line access charge for each wearable extension device is $10/month. If an extension device stops sharing and gets its own mobile number, the line access charge is $20/month.
Note: If you already have an extension device on your account, your line access fee of $5/month will not change. The new Apple Watch Series 3 isn’t eligible for its own mobile number. It must remain as an extension device that’s paired with a compatible iPhone as the host device.
Is my device eligible to use NumberShare?
If you have an HD Voice-capable smartphone on the Verizon Wireless network, it can be used as a "host" device and share your mobile number with other devices. The other devices that share your number are called "extensions".
The Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch and the new Apple Watch Series 3 on the Verizon Wireless network are the first devices that can be used as extensions. More devices are coming soon.
Note: Apple Watch Series 3 requires an iPhone 6 or later with iOS 11 or later. Both devices must be on the same Verizon Wireless account.
Note: NumberShare-capable devices don't require a separate app to share a number.
