***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community!

Can I change 2 step verification to email or landline?

I tried to access my Verizon account at home and was required to verify by a code sent to my phone.  The problem is I DON'T HAVE CELL SERVICE AT MY HOME!!  So if I want to explore my account or pay my bill online, I CAN'T get verification on my phone.  I had to come to town with my laptop to get into my account.  And no, I don't want to use the app on the phone.  I need a larger screen to be able to see and navigate.  Is there any option to turn this off or get an access code sent to my email or landline???  This HAS to be changed.

Your help is appreciated.
