Caution Share Name ID changes or updates can't be completed if you currently have another account change pending.

Note Notes:

  • Verizon Wireless can't guarantee that the Share Name ID displays on outgoing calls because:
    • other carriers may not support it.
    • if the phone number is already programmed into the call recipient's phone with a name, Share Name ID cannot override that name to display what was programmed on My Verizon.
  • If the Share Name ID isn't showing up correctly the person receiving the call may need to contact their service provider for additional support.
  • Share Name ID info displays when calling another carrier which is using the service.
  • Contact list of the device overrides the Share Name ID info when a call is received.
  • Share Name ID can only be managed by Account Owner or Account Manager lines.
