Device nickname on prepaid account

I am moving phones from my post-paid account to a prepaid.  I have three moved over, but all of them have my name on them.  In the post-paid portal, I could easily change the device nicknames.  I cannot find that control in the prepaid portal.  How can I make that change?

I had the exact same problem. In the post-paid plan I could easily change the nicknames through the VZ website. I couldn't do it on-line with the pre-paid plan. I had to contact customer service through their secure chat - it took a few minutes.

I did try contact customer support, but it seemed they were only going to change the name on all of the lines to the same new name.  I have two more lines to move and then I'll try CS again.

I'm confused as to why this is so difficult.  It is an easy change on the post-paid account.

Help is here, mgeorge48873! Are you using the My Verizon App for Prepaid, or going through the website?

Darn, I didn't mean to mark that previous post as a "Correct Answer".  I wanted to correct the answer to say:

"I tried both the My Verizon app and the website.  There is no 'My Verizon App for Prepaid'."

I do not see device nickname option in the My Verizon website or the My Verizon app for prepaid.
