Each line will have its own MyVerizon account. If you are able to text from 1 line on your computer, you would have to log out of that MyVerizon account and log into the other MyVerizon account in order to be able to do so. This is what is needed in order to do so from the website. I am unsure if you are able to log in/log out in order to switch between accounts on the desktop app.

If you have only set up 1 MyVerizon account, you will have to set up a MyVerizon account for the other line.

yes I have only one acct for both phones so that must be the problem with messaging.  I can see everything for both lines, but couldn't get messaging to work with both lines.  I'll try your suggestion.  Thanks so much for the fast response!
