Log in to your My Verizon account - on the home page next to My Account is a link to View Profile. At the bottom of that page is Account Alerts - to the right is a link to "View and Edit Alert settings" - you can select email, text, either or neither.
SuzyQ, I logged in to see what info could be sent via text, account balance is not one. I wonder if the OP is on a prepaid account.
You could be right, budone. I read right over the part about the account balance and I was responding to this:
OP states: "I already have it setup to automatically ... send me emails when a statement is ready? I do not want to receive a page for this." I get a text when my statement is ready, by my choice, and I can turn that off via the steps above.
If this is a pre-paid account, then it may work differently. Minnihaha over on the pre-paid threads can answer this (if this is a pre-paid account), I'm sure!
