How do I change the name displayed when sending a text to an email address?

Member

When I send a text message to an email address the recipient sees my name as XXXX. It is not my phone number or even my name, it's a nickname I must have put on my account years ago. How do I change this?

disbelief0004,

Sending messages to email can come in handy. The Vtext service is now part of Verizon Messages. You should be able to adjust this nickname in the Settings under Verizon Messages in your My Verizon account.

If you can change it, it would be an option through your MyVerizon account online.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
