You do not need to change your number to a local number. Not unless you want to. Remember that you would have to alert your contacts of the change.

However, should you decide to change your number, you can log in to your account and type 'change number' in the I want to field.

Won't  I be on roam or something since it's not where I set the number up at

Not if you are on the old Nationwide plans or higher. It has been a VERY VERY long time since mobile phones roamed.

What plan are you on?

I hope your move went smoothly, Trenton08. If you find that you'd like to change to a more local number, it's extremely easy through My Verizon http://www.verizonwireless.com/support/change-mobile-number-faqs/ as sprmankalel mentioned. But with cellular services, there's usually no need to change to something more local since our plans include nationwide coverage http://www.verizonwireless.com/support/domestic-roaming-faqs , you really would not need to worry about roaming unless you've moved out of the country.

It just seems like my data is being used up way faster than when I was in

Illinois, that's why I thought it would make a difference.

Trenton08,


Data usage is can be used up without trying too hard. Let's review. It does not matter what state or area you are in. Data is calculated based on information transmitted over our network. Has anything changed with the way you have been using your phone? Moving can be stressful. Do you have WIFI at your new location?

Having a phone number from your old place won't use up more data.  It is completely unrelated.  No more roaming as stated.

It seem as if at my new home there is often a delay when talking with someone on the phone - I assumed that is because the call hase to go through 630 exchange rather than the local 505 exchange. Could that be the case?

Providing good, reliable service is our main goal regardless of your area code or location, TLM2. We’re right here to help sort out what’s going on. Please share more details about the delay. When does it happen, exactly? Does it happen in other locations nearby and, if so, where? Do you notice this on both incoming and outgoing calls? The more detail you can share the better.
