Can I receive a paper bill for my prepaid phone?

My driver's license is expiring soon, and I'm wondering if I can get a bill for my prepaid phone, to use as proof as address.  I have no other bills in my name, and cannot have any of the household bills changed into my name either.  My phone bill is my really my only hope.

Pre-paid phones do not have paper bills.

You can always go to your local sheriff's department and get a non-driver's ID.

Keep in mind that MANY places require a government issued ID AND 1 or 2 RECENT bills addressed to you at that address as proof of address.

Would a pay stub with their address work?

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

That is not an option.  My husband does not have his license, and I'm his only way to work.  I must have my license.

What is not an option? Your husband going to the local sheriff's office and getting a non-driver's ID? The fact he doesn't have his license is the whole point of a non-driver's ID!

My husband is not the one in need of an ID right now, I am.  I need to renew MY driver's licence and need to update my address on it.  My husband does not have a driver's license, so I am the only way he can get to work.  You cannot legally drive a vehicle without a driver's license, which I think is pretty common knowledge.  Like I've ALREADY stated, I have no bills in my name currently to prove residency, and cannot have any put in my name either.  I was hoping maybe I could get a phone bill but my phone is a prepaid.
