***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community! Beginning the evening of Sunday 12/4, both Communities will be placed in read-only mode. You’ll still be able to visit the Communities and browse content, but login will be disabled. On the afternoon of Monday 12/5, all users will be able to log into the new Verizon Community. We expect the new Community to be fully functional the morning of Friday 12/9. Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!
Transfer of a line

My parents are going through a divorce and my mother does not make much money, is it possible to have her keep her number and just start a line on my account with her old number?

Re: Transfer of a line

Yes, this is possible. You will need to go to a corporate store with your mother or you can initiate the process online. You will need the account owner of your mom's line permission. (easy if she is on the account, tougher if it is her soon to be ex).

Customer Support

I am sure it is a tough time, and we want to help make things easier in any way that we can. To answer your question, yes your mother should be able to keep her number and transfer it to your account. You can find details on how to start the process, here: Does this help?
