***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 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
Short Codes on Iphone 6S Plus not working

Over the weekend I switched all 4 lines for my family from AT&T to Verizon (Yeah!). Ever since the switch, several short text codes that I used everyday no longer are working on Verizon for us but do work for other people that I checked with that have Verizon.  Can you please assist me with getting the short text codes to work?  Thanks!

Re: Short Codes on Iphone 6S Plus not working

Short Code SMS is now disabled by default. Too many people fell for scams, got signed up for monthly garbage they never wanted, etc. You can call Verizon customer support and ask them to enable short code sms on your account.

First, I would like to welcome you to our family, MICALA27. I use short codes all the time. What happens when you try to re subscribe to those short codes? There is a block that we can put on your account to block short codes that maybe was accidently put on. You can check on MyVerizon. Or reach out to us directly at
