***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team
Messenger + issue after getting a new number.

I recently got a new number. Now when I send texts it turns them into group messages with my old number as a 3rd recipient?

Trophyguy22, we always want all your messages to work the way they should. We are here to help you with your text messaging. 

 

What model phone do you have? Does everything else work properly for you like calls and data access?

note 8.

It only happens with select contacts which I send a message to. Question? If the person that I'm messaging still has a message box open from my previous phone number, then when I send a new message it would create a group message correct?

That's good to hear that everything else is working for you. Getting those messages to stop create a group message is a must. We want to get this resolved for you.

 

Typically, phones would not know if the new number is associated with the old number. However, have they tried deleting those messages from their phone or deleting your contact and re-adding you as a new one with your new phone number?
