Change Forum Email Address

How can I change my email address in the Forums?? I see the Edit Profile button, but there is no way to change/update email addresses.

On Verizon account it is right, just the forum is wrong.

Thank you!

When you clicked on Edit Profile, did you then click the Profile Info. tab?  One of the options on that screen is to change the e-mail address.

I have the same problem, I can see my email address but there is no button to "change" it.  Verizon, you are really falling down on the job.

Community accounts linked to their MyVerizon account might not have the option to change the email address since it is populated from the MyVerizon account. If you have a community only ID, then you should be able to change it.

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

Ann154, thanks for the info...but then how or when does Verizon sync email address changes from the MyVerizon account to the community forums account?  I changed mine this morning and the community still shows the old one.  Does it ever get updated, or is it stuck forever at the first address used in the forums?

Vzwarlington, I know that it can be frustrating dealing with website updates. Now that you have updated your My Verizon account's email do you see the option to edit the email on the forum site?
