How do I change the primary number in Message+ on a Verizon phone?

I have 2 Verizon phones. I use regular messaging app on phone 1 & want to add msg+ to phone 1 with the number from phone 2. 

If I go out I only want to have to carry one phone & be able to get the messages from both numbers on one device.

But once you install the message+ app on a verizon

phone. it forces you to select the number of the phone it is installed on.

I do not want that. I want a different verizon number to be assigned to the

message+ app, while installed on a verizon phone.


Can I change the primary number of the message+ app?


Thank you

The application recognizes when it is installed on a phone or a tablet. You can only assign a specific phone number to the application when it is installed on a tablet. The application on a phone will default to the number assigned to that phone. 

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