Pardon the interruption Gph1966. You are on the right path to get this taken care of. To piggyback off of tikibar1's great information. Here are the step wrote out for you:


To assign or change the names of your devices:

 Note: You must be the Account Owner

a.Go to the Account Overview page in My Verizon. (Please try on Desktop)
b.Click Edit Device Name next to the device you want to name.
c.Enter names for one or more of your devices.
d.Click Save Changes.

Hope all works out for you.

If you're logged into My Verizon as Account Owner/Manager, scroll down to My Devices and click on one of the devices.  Next to the device name (above the description of the device), click the Edit Device Name button.

That button does not show up. I am logged in under primary user. I have selected Device Overview, then selected a device, and there is no button to change the device name. I am viewing it on an iPhone if that matters.

The button is available to me whether I'm logging in via the desktop version of My Verizon or via my phone using the My Verizon Mobile app.  If you're logged in as Account Owner/Manager, I'm not sure why it isn't available to you as well.

Edit Device Name is not an option under Account Overview on my screen.  When I go to the Devices Overview, the only option button next to each device is Upgrade.

We want to make sure you are able to update your device nickname, MTar. Since the layout of My Verizon has recently changed, the process to update your device information has also changed. From the Devices overview page, click on the phone that you would like to change. From there, scroll down to the section labeled Manage Device and you will see Edit Device Nickname as your first option. Does this help clarify things for you?

There is no "manage device." There are only two instances of "Change Device," netiher of which allows me to rename the existing device.

We’re not going to give up on you, JimMcKTech. Nicknaming your devices makes it easier to keep track of whose is whose when viewing My Verizon. We’re sorry the information we’ve provided so far has not led you to the exact option you need. Please view item #3 on this page http://spr.ly/6606EjqfQ for the exact steps you need. Be sure to let us know if this information helps you nickname the lines on your account.
